    Great place!

    Compliance Analyst (Former Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThe people I worked with are professional, and by that I mean not only in their knowledge and skills, but in their demeanor. They are helpful to a fault, and take the considerable time it takes to bring a new employee up to speed.

    ConsI have to put five words here, but there are none.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive everyone in Compliance a big raise!

    Depressing place to work.

    Supply Chain/Manufacturing (Former Employee)
    Hartford, CT

    ProsPros - Good compensation. Easy to not work hard and simply show up and get paid. Large company so there is ability to jump around and try out various roles if desired, although after working for 3 branches of UTC - they all have the same feel... sad.

    ConsCons - Company is too big for its own good. Series of reductions and layoffs have deflated morale. Company takes ' this is how we've always done it' approach. Mandated boring corporate initiatives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways to foster a sense of culture and commitment from employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
