    I worked at UTC Fire & Security as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great flexibility.
    Choose what hours you want to work.
    Very little stress and low employee turnover rate.
    Not micromanaged, given responsibility to complete projects and tasks on your own.

    Cons

    First off the company I worked for is a small less than 100 person company that became a part of UTC Fire and Security around 3 years ago when they were bought out. Ever since becoming a part of UTC, this little company has had no power whatsoever to hire new employees. The position I originally applied for was a full time perm position. However, I had to take a contractor position because the line of communication between corporate was non-existent. I assumed after a few months I would be hired full time if my performance was up to par. After many conversations with management at this small branch, I quickly began to realize they had no power whatsoever in any decision making process. There is also no on site HR which makes getting anything processed a pain. Salaries are very low and are not competitive with the MMR for a technology company in Southern California. This company is still stuck in 2000-2003 thinking it's location is in the Midwest and that the average home price is 200k instead of 600k+. I would say most Senior Developers(10+ years experience) get paid in between 50-80k which is basically minimum wage is Southern California. All UTC corporate is currently doing is making cutbacks and not doing anything to grow their current businesses. This awful management style will hurt them severely in the long run when all the long term employees start to retire. They won't be able to attract new employees to work for them because they can't keep up with the competition salary wise in this advanced job market. UTC is getting too large for it's own good and it is only going to continue to hurt the smaller companies that corporate won't lift one finger for. All UTC execs care about is dollar signs and profitability. Well I hate to break it to you UTC, but it is the employees that make that stock price go up and if all of your former employees are leaving to work for actual worthy DOW 30 companies well we will see how well those layoffs and contractor positions help you in the long run. As a millennial I expect a lot from a company with such prestige as UTC. I am disappointed at how overrated they really are. I don't see myself ever working for this company again when there are so many better choices out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new employees to grow the business.
