Good while it lasted

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Bloomington, IN

ProsWas a good company to work for. Ok benefits, paid for me to go back to school. Not bad salary for the area.

ConsGiant corporation that's not afraid to downsize at the drop of a hat. Employees kept in the dark about long term plans.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to be more open and communicate more. Try to foster more intra-company communication too. Spend Less time doing paperwork

    A good job at a short-sighted company.

    Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    I worked at Otis Elevator


    Pros: Great pay for low-level supervisory work. Good benefits, to include employer-matched (6%) 401(k) contributions. Reliable work schedule… Cons: The management cares for very little beyond making profit, thus low-level supervisors are hand-cuffed… Advice to Senior Management: Stop focusing on the all-consuming desire for a profitable bottom line and concentrate on providing the best service, like we tell our customers… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    I have been working at Otis Elevator


    Pros: Pay is nice, $50k+ depending on experience. Okay benefits, vast array of resources available… Cons: MICROMANAGED TO A T. HIgh stress, constant challenges, technical equipment, long hours.… Advice to Senior Management: Praise on a job well done. Employee appreciation days, less micromanagement, high more adminstrative staff in… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
