    I worked at United Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits - especially tuition reimbursement. Not only do they pay 100% for any program you want (does not have to be work related) but they also provide up to 4 hours per week paid time off to go to classes! Also have orthodontia insurance for all ages - including adults, not just limited to dependents under a certain age.

    Very ethics focused as well. All departments are seen equally, and sites are ranked as a whole (no weak links are left unattended).

    Cons

    Certain divisions are prone to huge increases and reductions in staff on a regular basis - never except a position that was newly created, they are the first to get cut... Nor any positions with a history for being repeatedly cut, as you will only last a year.

    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.

    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

    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.
