    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement is definitely a highlight. Good starting pay for non-engineer graduates. Relatively nice campus. Good location. Overall worker population is friendly and very diverse and a good mix of men and women, young and old, and ethnic backgrounds. Good focus on personal development in terms of training and career plans. 1-1.5 week off for the holidays from Christmas to New Year's. Vacation (2 weeks accrual [more with seniority] plus 1 week you can buy after 1 year of working). 2 weeks sick days. and 1 week personal time. Good package. Vesting program is pretty good. 6% match and fully vested after 2 years of contributions; 3 years without. There's a good amount to learn skilsl-wise that you can bring along after you leave.

    Cons

    Trust in Corporate management - seems like they say they care about people but you know it's all about the money. No issue with that personally, but they sometimes come off as just plain fake. I also don't think they communicate their expectations well. You lay off people because budgets are tight so you layoff 50 people but then you install new carpet and renovate the lawn to SAVE money? Get real. Work is generally pretty boring and not really stimulating. Offer more/official flexible work arrangements. I feel like most people don't need to be in the office most of the week. In my department I had at least some visibility of the going on's in upper-management and was not impressed - just seems like overall communication is poor between themselves and with the rest of the company. Was expecting something better considering how well the business is doing overall.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to focus on what brings you more VALUE, not necessarily more SAVINGS You can accomplish so more if you allow creativity to grow naturally instead of forcing it through the ACE program.

    Pros

    I was being trained and went through classes to be certified for painting parts and crane operator.

    I was the 4th employee in my department laid off for slow time and not enough of work.

    Pros

    great benefits, ESP pays college tuition 100%

    Cons

    too much politics, low employee morale, and it seems Corporation just wants to fulfill a quota. Not a place to work for minorities

    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime, a lot of great people to learn from, working in the AC is always a plus. The good outweighs the bad. 6 weeks paid @ 75% base pay for new fathers. The pay is great for an entry level guy or girl. These other bad post of UTC are just old employees who have nothing better to do then bicker about how it used to be.

    Cons

    Health care prescriptions, out of pocket cost, capitalism just like any other big corp just looking out for there share holders.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring better quality employees. I see alot of sloppy new hires. You get what you pay for.

    Pros

    steady job, decent pay and good lower management people

    Cons

    Since the integration with Hamilton Sundstrand the number of charts duplicated three fold. You only have one third of your available time to do work related to the product. You are expected to work 24/7 for the same salary. Be careful with Hamilton Sundstrand's people, they don't care and will get rid of you if you make any noise. Hamilton Sundstrand management has totally taken over and pushed the old Goodrich people out. you no longer have a sense of family team effort, covering your butt is the name of the game. Seems like Hamilton Sundstrand had all these people doing nothing that they offloaded them to fill and move everyone else in the company .

    Advice to Management

    Congratulations! you managed to find a place for yourselves.
