    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

    Learned a lot during my internship here; great co-workers, great projects, great time.

    Cons

    Not much to do with the company but to the location of the office itself--not much to do around there, kind of boring after hours.

    Pros

    Really great people there, good processes, excellent learning environment including leading education assistance program

    Cons

    UTC has long made its financial targets through bottom line excellence, not top line organic growth. Therefore, there is a constant need for restructuring, as one measure to achieve cost savings to meet the bottom line targets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in career development and learning.

    I have been working at United Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    UTC will pay for 100% of your education and books with enough of a stipend to get multiple degrees at any level (associates, bachelors, masters). UTC allows you to enroll in a degree in any field regardless if it applies to what you do or anything that has to do with UTC such as getting a medical degree. They also pay you 3 hours a week to take time off work to study which accumulates weekly allowing you to use it all in one day or spread out through multiple days. 401K standard or roth matching up to 6% of base annual salary on top of another pension type of a plan that UTC puts money into an account for you regardless if you enroll in any kind of savings plan or not. Offer 3 weeks paid vacation, 1 week paid sick leave, and 13 more days of holiday pay on 1st year of employment (pro rated of course depending on when you start).

    Cons

    Sometimes job gets a little boring due to inconsistent work flow (extremely busy at times, and slow at others).
    Health care kind of expensive.
    Multiple supervisors due to them always getting promoted and or transferring to one of the many United Technology Corporation plants around the world.
