    Pros

    Excellent compensation for excellent performance. Great salary and health benefits. Great patent awards. Most managers have walked the walk and have a great understanding of technical principles. Schmooze factor is not as high as many other companies. Technically challenging products. Top line tools for engineering.

    Cons

    Work load can be high if the customer focus demands. Travel to address or solve supplier issues can be excessive. Cost focus is at times too great and often at the expense of supplier quality. Schedules are often set too close allowing little time for testing. Research is minimal unless customer funded.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with all the contract labor as they will be working for the competition later. Spend some money on materials research, doing otherwise will place future products at a disadvantage. A little more accountability at the mid and senior level engineering positions is needed.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Hamilton Sundstrand (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was very friendly, and I was interviewed by three people in a "round robin" type fashion by the cell manager and two Manufacturing Engineers from my future cell. They asked pointed questions that drew me into discussing my various qualifications without my feeling that I was being "grilled." Since they made me feel comfortable I was able to be myself and let my knowledge, experience, and personality sell themselves. At the end of the interview I thanked them for their time. I was hired two weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • The question, "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" was entirely unexpected, but I replied, "Still doing my best work possible for this company."   Answer Question
