ProsYou can work for aerospace companies leading the charge on cutting edge jet engines or helicopters, or experience the cutting-edge climate controls and security commercial business, or perhaps spend some time in an alternative energy business, all without leaving the family.

ConsTalent movement accross businesses is supported and part of UTC culture, however, synergies, efficiencies and collaboration accross businesses is very challenging.
