I have been working at United Technologies as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The pay is great (almost unheard of for internships), and it is an invaluable learning experience. As an intern, I wasn't just treated as "the intern" and given mundane tasks, I was treated as a part of the team and trusted to take the lead on large assignments. My internship fully prepared me for my career. If you're a student looking for an internship or a student about to graduate, I highly recommend applying to an internship or Leadership Program (for recent grads) at UTC.

Cons

United Technologies is a large company, and in certain areas there's not much room for growth. Since it's a great company, the turnover is very low. People spend their entire lives working for UTC, which makes it difficult to move up.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, and most of the people are fun, yet professional.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. Overall size of company and the politics higher up in management can be cumbersome. You need a strong desire to climb the corporate ladder in this position.

    -limited overtime allocations (frustrating when schedules are tight)
    -near daily tasking meetings (gives the feeling of micro-management)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
