    I worked at United Technologies as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible managers who don't do a lot micro-managing, great pay, Employee Scholar Program, strong code of ethics

    Cons

    Some offices are in need of serious upgrading, don't really foster much intern engagement outside of a few webinars

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should work to make sure that office spaces are updated and appealing. Employees spend 40-50+ hours in the buildings to foster company growth. They should be able to do this in a space that is well-lit, comfortable and encourages creative thinking and boosts morale.

    Pros

    Huge company with many opportunities to move around. People are generally very civil and respectful. Take advantage of the great employee scholar program!

    Cons

    A large corporate hierarchy-- too much red tape. The reporting layers caused inefficiency and unnecessary rework in workplaces. Focused only on cost saving rather than training employees to be more efficient and productive to generate quality result.

    A nice office work environment.

    Cons

    Remember this is corporate. Don't expect to be treated with respect or a human being. The goal is to cut costs wherever possible. You are ALWAYS expendable.
