    Approves of CEO

    I worked at US Airways as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free standby travel, decent pay, great exposure to structural design in composites and sheet metal, great opportunity to learn about machine design and function, stress analysis in components.

    Cons

    Lower end of pay scale for a co-op mechanical engineer position, flying privileges are standby only so there is no guarantee to get on a plane, industry is not stable so a full time position is not necessarily the best option for a degree'd individual.

    Advice to Management

    Engineering management is fine but Maintenance and Technical management are too concerned with keeping schedule and delaying items more than accomplishing quality work.
