    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are many intelligent and dedicated personnel that have been with the company for many years. The Employee Scholarship program is top notch if you are looking to further your education regardless of field.

    Cons

    The dictatorship style of leadership of conform or be removed is a unwelcomed aspect of UTC buying Goodrich. The family oriented style of management is gone and the company continues to take away many of the benefits that made the company a pleasure to work for (reduced gain share, poor medical).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on your people rather than the stockholders. Your employees are the sole reason for the success today.

    Pros

    Benefits, experience, fun to work in Aerospace and Defense sector

    Cons

    Ever since Goodrich was acquired, the culture has changed because of the acquiring company. A lot of great people have since left.
    Lots of politics, PowerPoint, and very dry and unenthusiastic culture.

    I worked at UTC Aerospace Systems

    Pros

    High tech and fair wages.

    Cons

    The managers did not seem to value the hard work and contributions. Lots of diplomacy; perhaps the reason for many unqualified managers and engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the ones that put their hearts in their work; they are the ones that actually deliver...

    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global reputation as the biggest and best aerospace company, lots of opportunities to work on various projects for those who are proactive and like to take initiative, great salaries and benefits, lots of jobs across the country and world to transfer to. Great team atmosphere within my department as we are all highly-driven employees.

    Cons

    Since UTC acquired Goodrich in 2012, individual ownership of work has gone out the window as everything is standardized according to their ACE program. Creates huge inefficiencies and confusion in workflows and sometimes causes employees to do things twice, sometimes three times. Employee turnover has been high since the acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace your ACE program by hiring top talent with expertise in their field. As it is, everyone feels micro-managed and disempowered because of it.
