    I worked at Pratt & Whitney full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible work / work from home but even that's disappearing. Some college courses are still paid for but that program is being trimmed.

    Cons

    Unless you know someone (the good ole boys) your career will go nowhere. PFT (Performance Feedback Tool) is used at their convenience, not yours (raises are based on a premeditated "rack & stack" not your PFT). No training whatsoever, figure it out on your own and "just get it done" (senior employees who know what they're doing are disappearing fast or are so overtaxed with what's on the "front burner" they have no time for new employees). Everything flows from the top-down (don't even open your mouth with constructive criticism, you'll be blacklisted instantly). I knew an engineer that stood up to senior management ..... he was gone the next day. Don't use the Dialog program either, the information will go straight to your manager / supervisor to be used against you. Top heavy management in every department. Knife wielding / back stabbing abounds.

    I could go on and on .......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better be looking over your shoulder, you might be next

    I worked at Pratt & Whitney full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on government contracts and get security clearance -- good for other places too.

    Cons

    Command and control environment. Lack of appreciation for new ideas or ways of thinking. Claim of being top Diversity company, but lacks support in their actions. Takes a long time to get anything accomplished and even leaders seem to be afraid of making a mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to contribute ideas, stop withholding information, practice what you preach, stop being so political.
