Challenging place to work
Intern, Signature Discipline Group (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – June 14, 2017
Working at Pratt and Whitney was always a very mentally challenging endeavor, there were few times where I felt that I was provided with a task that I already knew exactly how to accomplish. I felt that getting challenged on a daily basis helped me progress as an intern, and helped me gain a lot more experience in the engineering disciplines.
My manager at Pratt and Whitney was always open to hearing concerns addressed by employees, and very engaged with all levels of the group I worked at. He did a great job of helping to mentor myself and the other folks that worked there, and helped ensure that we had everything that we needed to get the job done.
Everyone at Pratt is extremely knowledgeable and more than willing to share their experiences with you. I think that everyone understands that in order for the newer folks to rise to the level that they need, they have to be willing to listen to all of the questions that we have and to provide advice.
I had a blast working with the group that I did, and they went out of their way to make sure that I felt like a part of the family. For an internship, I felt that they went above and beyond what I could have expected as far as being a sort of "transient" employee. For that, I am extremely grateful and humbled.
