Great learning experience, but...If you're part of the "club" and have no life outside of work it's for you
Project Engineer/Project Manager (Former Employee) – CT – February 10, 2018
You can gain a vast wealth of experience in an incredibly short time, but at a price. Five years of experience at any other place would occur in a year here. The product is incredibly fascinating. Initial pay is good, but good raises come to those with the 60+ hour weeks and no OT pay. Just as you start to get knowledgeable at a position, you're moved to another "hot" position. The work flows to capable hands and the pace is fast! Promotions internally tend go to minorities/women or people in the "club". Your better path is to leave, get cross pollination experience, and then return at a higher position. I gained significant knowledge as an engineer, and as a manager, that I took with me in life. But the high stress environment takes a toll on you and your family. Layoffs are always happening somewhere in the company, so don't miss a beat. Very few people survive to reach retirement age. I left to start my own successful business. This company did make an effort to treat the customer ethically, and do the right thing for the flying public, and I found that a strong positive. I carry forward that same philosophy in my own business.
You'll never get bored if you're not afraid to work
long term careers can be tough to achieve
