    I worked at Otis Elevator full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Godd Facility, decent contract pay

    Cons

    Management didn't seem prepared for onboarding the IE's and putting them to useful work. We did makework at first, then eventually did relevant work. The focus and direction didn't seem to be their for the Otis Management.,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take control of the shop labor and get a better understanding of the company's direction. Keep to the spirit of the contracts you make with contractors. We were released earlier than the contracts we held.

    I have been working at Otis Elevator as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people and management are friendly and professional who work together to satisfy thier customers

    Cons

    In some areas the workforce is inexperienced however management is working on increasing their skills by implementing Work Instructions and better training. Even with management improvement efforts in place there are some workers who have such bad attitudes they are affecting the productivity of the team. I hate see people loose their jobs in this bad economy but if they don’t want to be there then, let them go, there are too many good unemployed people who would like the opportunity to work at company Otis Elevator.

    I worked at Otis Elevator as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - a lot of opportunities for moving around UTC
    - great supervisors
    - job support
    - flexible

    Cons

    - no work life balance
    - track every movement and typing stroke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want interns to want to move toward full time, do more development programs so we can learn about other areas in the company. There are a lot of opportunities at UTC, so teach us more skills that the company wants us to have.
