I'm already with RTX and looking at moving to another facility in Socal. Our current location is Union. Does P&W have union representation ? Also, do these "smaller" facilities tend to come and go or once they're opened they stay open

It used to be the other way around, Pratt was a place to be. A great company to advance your career. Now it's a company where you get stuck and the only way to make any progress is to leave. Ask around and see how many people are getting ready to... — read more
My 5 years with Pratt has caused me to have severe anxiety, depression, and panic attacks, which I've never experienced anywhere else. The toxic culture, demanding environment, borderline rude co-workers. I'm ready almost every day to give my notice... — read more
I miss guarding those big boys at Barksdale
Wouldn’t it be transparent for the company to divulge how many people were let go due to being on Vaxxed? They made a big deal of it but now it seems that nobody was held accountable and let go so what happened? The date past for employees to be... — read more

When hiring new hires, hiring managers get hiring “points” per HR for their teams if they hire other than White so Raytheon can be more diverse… wait 5 years and see if the Company will be better being diverse rather than hiring the smartest and... — read more

I'm not sure how anybody working here can remain normal. Every day we need to deal with uncertainty, unnecessary stress, an increasingly toxic work atmosphere, office politics, and so many more things. Sometimes I feel that quitting and dealing with... — read more
I did when I just started, but the company has morphed into something unrecognizable since then.
Teaching CRT; be careful if you want a job here…..
Does anyone know how long they hold onto personnel records before it is destroyed? I never printed out my PFT’s which were all pretty good while I was there. I don’t plan on reapplying in the near future but I’m wondering if I do reapply in the... — read more
How much does United’s engine failure impact P&W’s prospects in the aviation market?
Is the engine fatigue on the United Airlines plane due to poor management decisions?
Next round, whether it's next month or next year, I'll be happy to volunteer. This place hasn't been the same since the last layoffs and I don't think it ever will be. With the economy as it is, this is not the time to just walk away but if I could... — read more
