    Pros

    UTC is a large company with global opportunity. This lends the possibility to work anywhere in the world. The management is good and there is alot of room for growth and development. Additionally, the employee scholar program is top notch with very few companies offering the level of reimbursement.

    Cons

    Health insurance options are awful. If you have a family expect to pay a large amount out of pocket every year in addition to any premiums. Executives can't seem to figure out what they want and request data differently every month.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the workload you are putting on your employees. When jobs aren't backfilled, the work still needs to get done which puts a greater burden on the other employees that need to pick up the slack.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at United Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were great. A lot of gifted and fun employees. They also had some of the best managers to work with.

    Cons

    United Technologies bought out Carrier Corporation, but allowed Carrier to continue working under its original name. United Technology then began sending jobs from Carrier Corp. over seas. Carrier Corporate actually lost one of our best Presidents in one of its largest International departments because "his people liked him too much". I reported to him directly. When he left he took most of his best managers and finance people with him and got them jobs at as CEO of the Company he went to.

    Advice to Management

    You have destroyed one of the best businesses in America that supported thousands in the Upstate New York area. Stop sending these jobs over seas. Realize that when you have a great President that works with his people that they believe in him and work harder. Not the other way around.
