Pros

There are still enough high level pros with excellent engineering culture to learn from.
A perfect place to start your carrier.

Cons

Management is completely lost to what it takes to grow and keep the talent. Too much focus on low cost engineering labor and off-shoring.

Advice to Management

Make the company to be again what it once have been - a cradle of American engineering.
Loose fat.
Let go off bureaucracy.
Cut down the amount of high level management positions and "parade generals".
Get lost.

    Pros

    Co workers are generally quite competent, you can learn from them and they are quite willing to help. The products that Pratt designs tend to push the design envelope as much as possible so there is an emphasis placed on developing new analysis techniques and technologies.

    Cons

    Management tends to seek one set of unobtainable criteria at the onset of a design and then changes its mind before parts are even produced. This tends to lead to alot of redesigns before the initial design is even tested. This is really frustrating when you have invested much time optimising to one set of parameters only to have them change. I suppose this is typical to some extent of any high tech company.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time getting to know the capabilities of each of the different module centers within the company. Understand when you are setting things up for failure.

    Very few managers at P&W actually listen and act upon employee feedback.
