Employed as a contractor for UTC Aerospace Systems. Job satisfaction is highly dependent on what program you land in. Some programs are considered less desirable and are only for a short time while some programs keep you on indefinitely.

ProsBenefits are very good, guaranteed pay raise and bonus every year, nice work-balance, company doesn't lay you off if your contract is up
