Pros

The Employee Scholar Program is very good. They will cover the expenses up front and will pay for one degree per level(1 Masters, 1 Bachelor, 1 Associates). They make sure you try to have a work-life balance; they are very flexible with the time you can come in the morning and leave as long as you do your minimum of 40 hrs per week for salary employees. There are many opportunities for career development in terms of employee network groups and networking events. Prepare yourself educationally and take advantage of the benefits that are available to you.

Cons

Due to the many benefits they provide, sometimes their pay may be less compared to other companies. Not all managers are used to recognize employees for a job well done even though they have recognition awards. You have to lookout for your own career development because otherwise you may stay in the same position for many years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize employees more often, increase the pay scale for outstanding employees and let employees pursue another Masters degree even if they already pursued one. You will decrease the employee turnover.

    Pros

    Great Employee Benefits!

    Education Reimbursement Plan is the best I have ever seen. I learned a lot working for UTC Internal Audit Department. Management at UTC is very competent.

    I would recommend UTC to recent grades as well as experienced hires.

    Cons

    Age is definitely respected in promotion consideration for manager level and above.

    Very competitive hiring process and credentials may be more important that experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Very smart people
    Stable company, generates a lot of cash
    Lots of growth opportunities for ambitious folks who are mobile
    Decent benefits & compensation

    Cons

    Long Hours
    Longer Hours
    Shareholders are more important than employees
    UTC will readily close an operation if the costs can be reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With such a deep management bench, UTC should acquire companies more aggressively. They have the young talent that is hungry for new challenges and could be deployed into these new businesses
