I often hear from former colleagues with whom I was close. After the dismissals, which were very stressful because everyone thought that they wouldn't manage to find another job so quickly, as it turns out, everyone did much better than they had hoped. Pretty much everyone I heard from is happy and working in much better conditions than here. I don’t know anyone who did badly after being laid off from this company. Morality of the story: we should have left here long before the dismissal.

Several interviews and o work offers yet (end of Jan,2021) and hard to find in general office support as there were many more people laid off from various business areas than engineering. Hoping for good employment however jkb requisitions are being cancelled from RTX now (sign of another slowdown?). What industries did you migrate to, to get better employment opportunities? Thank you for advice.
I have already found employment as well. An increase in pay, a yearly bonus, better benefits, more time off, and 0 work on nights and weekends. I feel very fortunate to be in this situation and so glad to hear that others are in a similar setting. I spent almost 10 years at Pratt. I have moved on emotionally from this pain and stay in touch with several former colleagues. I wish everyone the best in 2021 and hopeful that the airline industry turns around in a positive direction quickly.
Moral of the story: life goes on after a painful event such as the one this past fall at Pratt. Most often times even for the better. I truly couldn’t be happier. :)
Financially im doing better, and with a larger company but the sting of not being valued at a company I had pride in working for has left a scar. I would have stayed for alot less than what im making now.
An intermediate engineer friend of mine who got laid off is hired as a senior engineer in a bigger defence contractor.
