    Pros

    Pratt provides an opportunity to participate in very rewarding work
    The people are knowledgable and easy to work with. Its a great place to learn
    The overall culture is very personable. Top level leadership is approachable in my particular organization

    Cons

    The work requires some long hours to get the job done. Analytics tends to be that way.
    The compensation is also lacking in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    The PSA organization should promote senior to staff level engineers with the same scrutiny as other Pratt and Whitney disciplines.

    Pros

    While interning, I managed to meet numerous people and groups. Undoubtedly the most valuable part of my internship was that my manager allowed me to talk to so many groups, often I'd go visit different groups to learn what they worked on. The pay was competitive, and all of the people were really intelligent and everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Everyone would be comfortable telling me what they worked on and explaining anything that I didn't understand.

    Cons

    In IT there are not very many people that are technically focused, it was a lot of project management, which for some people might be a plus, but for me was a bit of a disappointment. I ended up finding some excellent technical people to work with, but they were definitely in the minority.

    I worked at Pratt & Whitney full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Cool product, reputable name, challenging work, great technical competence, good intended leadership

    Cons

    Engineering wide- poor execution, parts never come on time, continuous program slips, test delays, top management is "White Heavy" (Spreading a few white women across top management and calling it diverse isn't sufficient), all operations planned for failure and people who raise concerns are not "team players"

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all employees (not only the ones who play yes boss). Bring in some more diversity at higher levels if you are really serious - Black, Brown, Hispanic, Asian etc. - both men and women.
