    Pros

    Seem to take care of their employees to a certain extent.

    They are all about profit. They are closing down many operations throughout the US to earn more money.

    Pros

    Interesting products, good people in the shop floor. Lots of control over the process. They pay for your school tuition.

    Cons

    Culture is un-professional. Physically threatened by peer, screamed at by people one level up from another department, peers speak badly about other peers to get promoted which rarely happens due to almost no opportunity and HR does nothing to improve the situation. Also, drug abuse is rampant, especially in middle management. Finally, as an aerospace company you'd think they would validate their processes. This is not the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious about drug testing, especially leadership. Have HR develop a set of values and establish a feedback program. Pay attention to quality.

    Pros

    Hamilton Sundstrand was a good place to work with a lot of total care benefits above and beyond salary alone. Managers sometimes set unrealistic goals, but were fair when circumstances warranted. Managers also seemed to recognize talent and worked hard to promote from within, developing employees.

    Cons

    Interdepartmental communication lacking, underfunded or tight budgets did not always allow departments who work together in an efficient or helpful manner. IT needs improvement to support growing demands. Top down visibility for long term projects could use improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Long term strategic planning

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at HSPS because it offered competitive salaries, but there were also several opportunities for career growth within the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes cell management got away with unethical practices toward the hourly employees and Human Resources was less than sympathetic, which made for an uncomfortable atmosphere at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen better and take responsible action when lower management crosses ethical boundaries with hourly employees, e.g. harrassment, intimidation and retaliation.
