    A revolving door company

    Test Technician (Former Employee) Wilson, NC

    ProsI must bite my lip to find anything good to say but the only thing good was a few nice employee's who were being set-up for the ultimate exit without a reason.

    ConsThey hire you, give you 2 weeks to learn everything including things management doesn't know, have you train somebody new and likely at a lower pay scale and tell you not to come back. No reason, no explanation, no nothing after busting your butt for weeks. I saw this happen to a number of people there after an expensive relocation into the area. They couldn't care less about you, give you no tools to do your job, blame you for management problems and kick you out for no reason. If you take a job there, make sure to keep looking elsewhere because you'll need a new job quickly. Ask people you work with how long they've been there and you'll see that almost nobody has been there longer then 2 years and they are still temporary employee's. Terrible sweat shop atmosphere that is very crowded and unsafe. Many serious problems with the product are overlooked in favor of getting the numbers out. I'm sure the passengers of a Boeing 787 would appreciate that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Former Export Compliance Employee

    Compliance (Former Employee) Wilson, NC

    ProsNO Pros..you will get a pay check every 2 weeks.

    ConsThis place is ran by Hamiliton Sundstrand pulling the strings, people are scared to speak up to management about concerns. People will stab you in the back to look good in front of Hamiliton Managers. Hamilton Managers in Trade Compliance or ITC are not subject matter experts. The tend to let outside attorneys deal with all Trade Compliance concerns and corrective actions. Moreover, the HR at Kidde are useless when it comes to very simple questions such as how can i apply for other roles, whats taking my benefits so long to become active, and other simple questions they are clueless. Also, there has been a lot of turn over recently, the VP of Kidde, GM, and Lead Export/Import Manager was fired in 2012.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUTC Corporate needs to come in and do a complete sweep of all senior managers and replace all the Trade Compliance members at Windsor Locks, CT with more competent people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
