I worked at Carrier as an intern (less than an year)Pros
- Indianapolis is a city that grows on you, and I could see myself living there for a couple of years. The economy is booming there and if I was already out of college, I would capitalize as much as possible on the outskirts of downtown. There's lots of money to be made in Indy!
- Carrier is a company that has values of awarding individual, high performers.
- The salary and benefits of working at Carrier are excellent.
- The relocation package helped with my move and was received in my first check.
- There are some employee activities that bring out the personality in people some days and they were extremely fun.
- Carrier is backed by a multinational conglomerate, so there is always a sense of job security.
- The workload given to me as an intern has truly launched my career and sets me a part from thousands of people in my field. I am extremely grateful for my experience and the autonomy I was given in my work!Cons
- The workload can become overwhelming and consume your life.
- As an intern, you have no access to working from home. All work must be done in the office, if possible.
- The company culture is very conservative with old school values - you can really feel your youth in the office and how the majority still upholds values of Christianity, family, heterosexuality, and resistance to change. It is not bad thing, but the world is moving forward and Carrier will eventually fall behind.
- Carrier is extremely bureaucratic that it can seem almost like a dictatorship when dealing with executives. Not only are you conscious about every move, word, and step you take, it is intimidating and uncomfortable.
- Overall, Carrier will slowly fall back in the industry due to a lack of innovation. It is not celebrated in such a stiff environment resistant to change. It is time for Carrier to start listening not only to their existing customers, but to the new generational cohort that will actually be purchasing their products.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Listen to your employees - all of them. Whether the issue is large or small, an idea or a simple suggestion, there are so many improvements that can be made within the workplace.
