    I have been working at Otis Elevator as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people and management are friendly and professional who work together to satisfy thier customers

    Cons

    In some areas the workforce is inexperienced however management is working on increasing their skills by implementing Work Instructions and better training. Even with management improvement efforts in place there are some workers who have such bad attitudes they are affecting the productivity of the team. I hate see people loose their jobs in this bad economy but if they don’t want to be there then, let them go, there are too many good unemployed people who would like the opportunity to work at company Otis Elevator.
