I worked at United Technologies as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Work for one of the biggest aerospace companies in the world.
The company isn't going to go under any time soon.
Pay for interns is excellent.

Cons

There is no central organization for interns so what you do will vary significantly depending on your boss. If you are lucky you will have work. If you are extremely lucky, you will have interesting work, but most interns barely get any work and sit around bored every day.

Monotony of working in a cubicle farm for a huge company.

Since the company is so big, things move so slowly. There is so much legal red tape and BS that you have to work through.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Organize the intern program better. You attract a lot of people with high pay, but don't do a good job keeping them.

    I have been working at United Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great associate engineering program and leadership development rotation program. Pays tech assemblers very well. Many are able to sustain a 40 hour work week and has great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Massive cost overruns. Poor engineering management and directors. Goodrich culture is being slashed for cost savings, which dramatically has reduced productivity of engineers. Very outdated software technology tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stop assuming they know how to deal with the problems and open up forums for gathering feedback. Many managers start fires in new programs and move on to other newer programs without knowing the damage they have caused.

    I worked at United Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large company, many divisions, including overseas. Major aerospace and manufacturing. Lots of opportunity to move between sites or divisions, especially in CT area.

    Cons

    Culture is primarily about short term financial results and less about their people. Long term employees seem resigned to sticking it out and hoping they dont get caught in next round of layoffs.
