    I have been working at Pratt & Whitney full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of resources and support. You can, for the most part, choose what route you want to go in terms of your career.

    Cons

    Retention of younger hires isn't a priority, higher turnover in a very skills and experience based industry, things are being lost!

    Advice to Management

    Hiring college students isn't going to fix the more immediate problem of needing to take experienced workers off projects to teach the new guys.
