I worked at Piper Aircraft full-time (less than a year)Pros
While working as an intern at Piper, I didn't get to truly get immersed in the culture as I was only there a few short months but, I will say that it was a good opportunity for me personally.Cons
During my time at Piper, the "PiperJet" was the largest project for the engineering department. Unfortunately during my time there, this project was cancelled and the majority of my department was let go over the course of two months. My time spent there was little but it made me as a mechanical engineer realize how delicate the aircraft industry was so because of this experience, I haven't sought out this field since.
