    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in South Windsor, CT

    I worked at UTC Power full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good emphasis on bringing in new recruits and providing with best training and assignments of merit. Interns given top assignments and challenges mostly. Strict enactment of corporate operating parameters "ACE". Lean environment. Good emphasis on diversity throughout organization.

    Cons

    Follow through and implementation often waned due to excessive workloads on key individuals. Work-life balance suffered during product rollouts and initial deliveries. Mid level management not always competent for the roles appointed to. Some appointments seemed based on performance in meetings and not actual job performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize the professionals within organization better in future.

    They were unique but now they are no longer.

    Former Employee - Manufacturing Intern in South Windsor, CT
    Former Employee - Manufacturing Intern in South Windsor, CT

    I worked at UTC Power as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company was very small. This gave a company a family-like feel. The products they made got us to the moon and everyday was a challenge.

    Cons

    There are really no cons at this point. They don't exist anymore they have been chopped up and sold.

    I worked at UTC Power as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay for an internship. Some very nice people, easy to get in touch with coworkers and work out scheduling.

    Cons

    Management was absolutely dreadful. No one had any sense of job security, managers would be gone for weeks at a time. Poor use of employees, I was hired primarily as a software development intern, and spent almost all of my time doing busy work with Excel spreadsheets.
