Pros

Very stable product sales (military); a few pockets of brilliant, highly skilled people; above average pay in my opinion; definitely a team oriented environment

Cons

Stifiling bureaucracy; forms and authorization are required for nearly everything... and if you don't use the standard form filled out correctly in its entirety, good luck getting the task accomplished; quarter end profitability trumps sanity and common sense

Advice to Management

My advice to management? If you're competent enough to be a senior leader at UTC, leave. You could probably get a comparable job working less than 70 hours per week elsewhere

    Pros

    Good education plan, direct bill no reimbursement and many colleges and universities participate. Flexibility in certain departments. Centrally located, commute is a breeze within New Haven & Fairfield Counties. Really cool to see and end product that can defy gravity and that you have had a hand in creating.

    Cons

    Not a great place for women. Very little growth from within, many of Senior Management are not what we would call "home grown" but from another Helicopter company. Promotion of work life balance, however, in practice it is very non existent and hard to balance once on the program. Salary employees have a very expensive medical plan that requires a large amount of Cost Sharing from the employee which we do not understand as the company is self insured and has the ability to have much more control over the choice of plan. No vision coverage. Vacation time takes 7 years or more to earn an additional week.
