    Pros

    Innovative, successful and challenging company. Growing and expanding due to relentless focus on customer. Outstanding leadership. Sustainability focus is second to none. Five Star company to be working for.

    Cons

    Rapid expansion is challenging and outpacing support personnel. In constant promotion, recruiting, hiring mode. We spend a majority of our time recruiting, training our employees and promoting our superstars into positions of greater responsibility. Fast paced, high energy environment. No company for the lazy who just want a job. Pratt will eat you alive if you don't bring your "A" game each and every day!

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of our relentless focus on the customer. Quality, service, on time delivery is the king above all other.

    Pros

    Pratt treats employees with respect.
    Excellent benefits and pay structure is very competitive.

    Cons

    Company was built by acquisition; architecture is disjointed.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a more global IT approach.

    Pros

    Good pay,also get to go to company Dr. with no appointment.You will be ready to work the next day..

    Cons

    Insurance is good when it is not being cancelled for no reason..

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat people like humans not animals.Standing around calling a worker stupid and dum just isn't professional.


  10. Blind leading the blind

    Pros

    Close to home
    Friendly "higher" ( office) upper management
    Good vending choices
    Don't have much nice to say
    Trying to fill 20 words minimum in this spot.

    Cons

    * Pay is low
    * 20 minute break a day
    * Direct floor supervisors would rather complain about your down time and set up times rather than help you achieve what is expected.
    * very poor and unhelpful floor supervisors
    * you will learn more about the company and box making by Google rather than anyone being helpful enough to explain how things work.
    * No one on the floor will help you learn how to do your job. You will learn more at this plant by going into the office and having one of them come out. Or in my case google!!
    * very unorganized.
    * always waiting around for supplies to start your job. (Down time)
    * you get treated like your in grade school.
    * careless with quality. Would rather get quantity over quality.
    * lack of communication
    * floor supervisors act like they are lost and have no clue what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to have a supervisor over a certain section of the plant then maybe that supervisor should spend equal amount of time at each machine and with each employee. Not just ONE!!!!! It is what it is, and I hope it gets better. Not just for my sake but for the sake of the company and other employees who are fed up with the same exact things.

    Pros

    Every month there is a 10-14% bonus depending upon how well the plant performs. There is a lot of available overtime along with a good opportunity to climb up the ladder fast. My cousin worked there for one year and got a position as a supervisor at the age of 20.

    Cons

    Fast paced along with doing the same actions over and over.
    Safety protocals and corrective actions are often over the top or irrational.

    Advice to Management

    The best advice to management would be to communicate better.
