    I worked at United Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some really amazing and talented people. Products are leading edge and exciting. Many paths to success - not one defined path

    Cons

    Company is large, easy to get lost and become just a number. Important to establish connections with influential managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate barriers to truly flexible work arrangements - accept part time as a productive alternative to full time and you will have access to a tremendous amount of talent. This will require redefining positions

    I have been working at United Technologies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The employee scholar program is second to none when it comes to giving employees opportunities to gain additional education beyond whatever they bring to the company. It is not as generous as in the past, but it is still better than any other education benefit that I have heard of from any other company that is provided to ALL employees. The company overall is a good place to work and have opportunities to grow and develop as an employee.

    Cons

    The businesses within UTC can be a bit siloed, and depending on what organization you are a part of and your function, it can feel difficult, if not impossible, to emerge from that place. The brand is not exciting either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more opportunities for businesses to work across one another.
