Good paying job but long hours and lots of stress
Production Control Manager (Current Employee) –  Lansing, MIMay 7, 2018
The days are long and fast paced. I have learned a lot about production and product flow. Managing a union work force was a new experience for me. I like the job and the pay just wish the working hours and work loads were more manageable.

Great company if you're in the right area.
Senior Engine Technician (Current Employee) –  Patuxent River, MDMay 4, 2018
If you love to travel and see the world the field services mechanic is the way to go. As far as the PAX River site, the team here is one of the best in the country.

Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  East Hartford, CTMay 2, 2018
CEO has the right mindset on what the company culture should be like but there are many pockets of resistance. Your experience in Pratt depends on the group you work for.

Great place to work and
Software Computer Engineer (Former Employee) –  East Hartford, CTApril 24, 2018
I had to relocate and had an opportunity to go into manufacturing. I would've stayed at Pratt and Whitney and tried to navigate other departments if it was an option. The environment was good as far as co-worker and management relationships. It was very stressful at times due to the nature of the job which was to be expected.
Pros
Great company, benefits, access to upper management
Cons
Challenging to change departments/gain skills in other areas

Fantastic place to work. UTC will always be a top company to work for as they know how to treat and take care of their employees. Work environment is fast paced but manageable.

Typical job
Machine Cell Operator II (Current Employee) –  North Berwick, MEApril 15, 2018
This is a typical manufacturing type setting. For the most part there is no micromanaging of the work areas. Supervision allows you to get your work done with minimal interference, unless there is a need for a specific job to be done. I have a learned a great deal at Pratt & Whitney, from working bench jobs to running CNC machines. This is a safety geared workplace sometime to the point of excess, but you will be safe. There really is no, what I would call 'hard' jobs. The jobs are for the most part easy to learn.

Intern - Structures (Former Employee) –  East Hartford, CTApril 7, 2018
It is no surprise that Pratt & Whitney has many employees who have worked there for decades. The employees work hard, get paid well, and feel like valued members of the organization.

A lot of talk, no action
N/A (Current Employee) –  East Hartford, CTApril 5, 2018
People are over worked. The company is enduring many product quality issues and leadership is demanding a lot from its employees. The company has preached many great ideas about changing the culture but sadly people are still not being treated as they should. WLB aside, the company sometimes forgets that its employees are people.

Interesting and chalanging work place.
Inspector, Validation Inspection Services (Current Employee) –  Middletown, CTMarch 29, 2018
It is a very good place to work. One of the better places in Connecticut. There is a mixture of a lot of different cultures an personalities. It is a challenging and interesting work for skilled employees. Company provides opportunities for all employees to improve and obtain new skills. Also company may pay for collage degrees for qualified workers.
The only thing that needs to improve are the health benefits.
Pros
Good working conditions.
Cons
Health care benefits

Great starter company, but lay down roots
Qualty analyst (Current Employee) –  East Hartford, CTMarch 27, 2018
They attract a lot of new employees but many leave. Health Benefits are extremely poor, pay raises are at the whim of your boss, whether he likes you or not, there is retribution, even though they say they want people to speak there mind. I have been with them for 20 years, and they are poorly manage. There is more red tape today then there ever was in the past. They added huge layers of management that makes doing your job harder than it should. Moral amoung employees is at an all time low.
Pros
Clean and safe work environment
Cons
Benefits, salary, management, work life

Product Definition (Drafting Design) (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLMarch 20, 2018
This is a great drafting position . Came in as an intern with a two year degree. It can be a little catty at times but I feel that is typical of an office job with a cubicle arrangement. I have been able to learn a lot and am currently working toward an engineering degree through the work program. The flexibility and work life balance is the best thing about this job.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
