    Pros

    The best part of working at Pratt is the employee scholar program, but it isn't good enough to keep someone there.
    Another perk is that every time an event is scheduled they feed you will some pretty good food.

    Cons

    Long hours with no opportunity for overtime. Too many "managers" constantly asking for status of work. And these managers never actually help you when you are stuck.

    Advice to Management

    Become better engaged with your employees. When they raise a problem, actually help them to overcome it. Stop delegating all your work to the multiple "statusers".
