A typical day at Pratt involves heavy team communication and collaboration to meet weekly and monthly deliverables. I have learned alot in my 7 or so months at Pratt from my teammates who are always willing to lend a helping hand and give helpful tips and strategies. Management is very understanding, helpful, and easy to communicate with in regards to work and personal issues. My co-workers are also very friendly, hardworking, goal oriented people. I have learned alot about my role as a financial analyst, Pratt and Whitney in general, and about the programs I support. The hardest part of my job I would have to say is the high pressure to meet deadlines at times. The most enjoyable part of the job is the feeling of being part of a hardworking team with a shared common goal. It is a great feeling when the collaborative effort day after day leads us to improve our strategies, deliver reports/required reviews in a more timely manner than the month before, and you never feel like you are alone when there is an issue you are having trouble finding a solution too. It's challenging and rewarding at the same time.
