Pros

They allow you to learn new things and technologies for advancing your career. When you work within the company, you have many chances to move around and find something else in a different location or in the same location if you would like. Very diverse.

Cons

Upper level management really needs to pay more attention to what is going on with the employees and the problems encountered. Their valuable input is sometimes ignored because someone is worried about upper level management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees, even the guys at the bottom. If you want to bring people back to the company and earn trust, that is what you need to do.

    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

    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
