    Pros

    Great Company and people. Strong leadership team that delivered YOY value to stakeholders. Opportunity to grow is a Pro and Con...Meaning after you reach a certain level it is hard to move into the Director & above level. UTC will hire executives from the outside. Excellent employee education program...lots of opportunity to learn!

    Cons

    Hard to move up beyond Senior Manager level. Long-hours, but I think that is everywhere within Corporate America. Not all positions and levels within the Company are eligible for the annual bonus. I was eligible, but still think that all employees should be eligible on some level, there input does matter.

    Pros

    Workload keeps you busy all the time, no boredom or staleness. Excellent educational benefit (they pay up front!) and 99% of the people really deeply care about doing the best they can

    Cons

    I hear it depends on the site, but the integration of the new sites into the UTC way is very painful. Also, it's called Update The Charts for a reason....

    Advice to Management

    Don't simply push new methodologies and demands downward, SUPPORT your teams, they will reward you!

    Pros

    There was a lot of autonomy in the job and you were free to run it as your own business.

    Cons

    When the company decides to cut they often cut employee benefits. Also, even though the company is very large it is hard to pursue opportunities with other units.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline employee development and movement to allow fresh new ideas and company growth.
