    I worked at United Technologies

    Pros

    UTC offers a diversified job opportunity. This company encourages individuals to excel and allows latitude to explor new ideas. Depending on your position you are continuously trained to move into new areas learn new technology, so as to provide for continuous improvements.

    Cons

    It is rare to see executive and/or senior management associating with employees especially on 3rd shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive management needs to walk the production floor more and talk to the employees. If they associate and share company information they will see that most will provide ideas to improve production/safety and quality.

    Pros

    The Westford, MA division was acquired a couple of years ago by the large United Technologies. It still has somewhat of a small company feel and the people are friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Large company rules and processes are slowing becoming overwhelming.

    Pros

    What you would expect from a multinational employing over 200,000 employees: good compensation, fairly good benefits.

    Cons

    Over time the company has consistently reduced benefits like tuition reimbursement, incentive pay, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees' intellectual capital is your greatest asset and compensate accordingly.

    I have been working at United Technologies as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The location is fantastic. Small company feeling, with big corporation perks. Room to grow, with relocation required. Competitive salaries, product line is big so lots of areas to work in. Sometimes it might feel slow, just like any big company.

    Cons

    The room to develop might be contingent upon your willingness to move around or chase down the opportunity. Other than that there isn't another reason why would not work here, it's a great company.

    Utc corporate controls everything which makes supply chain tricky (when east coast needs to buy in)
