    I have been working at Detector Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are friendly. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Since the company has been part of United Technologies Corp. and with new CEO it seems like they are spending money to support outsource businesses and not on additional staff. They seem to think that the more supervisors they hire the better it will run, but this is not the case. They stress teamwork here. HR department is a joke. Direct supervisor meet new personal on the job, not knowing this person was hired. Employees are afraid to be laid off, if they say something. Bad business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate good employees and reward them accordingly.

    Pros

    Part of United Technologies Conglomerate = good benefits. The people are friendly. Not as stressful as other companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Every company has its own negative quirks. You just have to ask yourself if pros outweigh the cons.
