I really enjoyed my work at Pratt and Whitney. I worked with some extraordinary people that were mature enough to work as a team so that we could accomplish our goals and meet our production numbers. If there were things that that required more than one person, then someone was always willing to help. The same was true for asking questions, either another production employee would answer to the best of their knowledge, or a member of management would show you the information you seek in the work instruction protocol book. I would love to still be there but was laid off due to the coronavirus.

The job itself was easy to learn. The management was great I had no issues. Of course you had typical drama, what job doesn’t? As long as you worked hard asked questions when needed, the job is a breeze.

Generally a good place to start a career. However, experienced staff including executive leadership candidates often leave for better opportunities within the aerospace industry. The company has the best marketing and legal team I've ever seen. HR is very good at maximizing productivity per unit pay. Hours are flexible so you can work anywhere and you are expected to do so. Plan for 5 tens, occasional weekend time and longer days if you're working with international partners. The organization is shifting leadership frequently so there are opportunities to advance. They are also using unpaid work days (furlough days) and zero pay raises for low performers to control labor costs. Expect high percentage of work to be outsourced to other companies so you may wind up managing outsourcing labor as a daily activity. Must keep up with training and skill certification or risk layoffs that occur every 2-3 years. Networking is vital to career success!
Pros
You won't find higher technology anywhere else. Good people with good intentions.
Cons
Challenging work environment with lots of process changes that don't always represent advancement.

Good pay, good work, lots of opportunity for advancement but operational management is seriously lacking in advancing our company, hires many corporate bullshitters to come in here and run the show

P&W offers great pay with large challenges. There is no shortage of work to be done, it's a challenge to figure out who should be doing what. The work culture is do your job and go home kinda place.

Stay clear. Only last resort if no other option. If only option, continue looking for other opportunity away from company specifically Grand Prairie TX.

Avoid this location at all costs, not worth the headache. The culture within is poison to say the least. Alot of new faces who hold degrees that think they know everything, except how to communicate and do there job without passing the "buck" to those less qualified. Promotions are not based on who best qualified, so if you have a degree avoid this location.

Great people work at PW who are very smart and mostly lovely to work with. That being said, for a big company the benefits are only okay. There is a lot of paperwork and bureaucracy that can be tedious and creates complication in creativity. The workplace culture is evolving. If you are a full time employee, management does try to protect you. It is very hard to be innovative in production support situations.

There is never a typical day at work, every day was different for me
It was a great place to work at one time but now one person is doing the job of 3 people these days causing lots of stress, many people eat lunch at their desks because of this

With respect to the management, I've had great managers and terrible managers all with different styles and respects

There are double standards with respect to the management when it comes to ethics. BEWARE

There is no longer a pension for new hires

Benefits used to be excellent but now very expensive

Workplace culture is excellent

The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the German's on a joint adventure "PW8000 engine"

The job culture and people were great, the best part about working at Pratt. Unfortunately the actual work itself was not as great. The entire company is very disorganized and outdated, they desperately need to use modern technology to make things more efficient and work better. Lots of bureaucracy, hard to get things done, often working against all the rules and red tape put in place just to do your job. And a lot of the work is mundane and tedious, doesn't feel very advanced or innovative. At best just complex and difficult for all the wrong reasons.

Nice company but sometimes work can be come boring as it gets tied up in bureaucratic processes. Culture shift to retain younger talent. Trust is very important.

In all my years of working it was the worst experience
I was told the only place I could go was my desk to the ladies room. That was in a 12 hour shift. On the weekends with no cafeteria fresh food available

Very good company, highly educated workforce, very customer focused. Long term direction is driven by politics outside the company. Each presidential election cycle changes military spending which impacts contracts which could impact your job
