    Pros

    Highly interesting technologies make this an place exciting place to work. Co-workers are a cut above the norm.

    Cons

    Working on government projects tends to obfuscate profit motivation and replace it with politics. This flows throughout the teams working on the projects. Government projects are subject to the whim of the Congress and the President. Funding is never certain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't EVER refer to the company as 'Hamilton' by itself when talking to the Rockford employees! Use 'UTC' or something else.

  8. Great unless you're an intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Hamilton Sundstrand

    Pros

    I worked at the Rockford facility as a computer engineering co-op for about a year
    -Relaxed environment
    -Pays well
    -Get to work with latest aerospace technology

    Cons

    -Very bureaucratic -- have to work with legacy systems and software that is only still used because of contracts.
    -Hard to find work if you're a co-op. This is only made more difficult by the fact that the company looks down on indirectly charged hours, so it can be difficult finding people willing to give you a project to charge, meaning many times co-ops had to look outside their own department to find work.

  9. Great company to work for.

    Pros

    Seem to take care of their employees to a certain extent.

    Pros

    Interesting products, good people in the shop floor. Lots of control over the process. They pay for your school tuition.

    Cons

    Culture is un-professional. Physically threatened by peer, screamed at by people one level up from another department, peers speak badly about other peers to get promoted which rarely happens due to almost no opportunity and HR does nothing to improve the situation. Also, drug abuse is rampant, especially in middle management. Finally, as an aerospace company you'd think they would validate their processes. This is not the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious about drug testing, especially leadership. Have HR develop a set of values and establish a feedback program. Pay attention to quality.
