    Pros

    Good company to work for. Excellent systems and good top leaders. Committed to developing people.

    Cons

    Pay is average. A bit dictatorial but they have high expectations so it isn't surprising.

    Advice to Management

    Provide help to businesses that you acquire and guide them in the processes. It can feel like a mountain of requirements.

    Pros

    Decent pay and great educational compensation.

    Cons

    ACE program doesn't allow for self thinking and too many clicks which if you're not in advancement will not happen. They hire too many people based on education only don't really care about experience.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a big revamping of mangers and ratio of mangers to workers the company is way too top heavy.

    Pros

    Good compensation: salary, benefits, time off
    Reasonable hours

    Cons

    Most locations you can work are located in the middle of nowhere or Connecticut

    Advice to Management

    Most of my managers were pretty reasonable. I really can't think of any advice off of the top of my head.

    Pros

    United Technologies offer some of the best insurances, all the benefits are right up there with all the big Corporations with an added quarterly bonus.

    Cons

    I feel they could have given the employees a lower premium for all the insurances especially with the number of employees they have,

    Advice to Management

    Good job, just don't be shy paying the employees what they really deserve after all, they do do the real work

    Pros

    Employee Scholarship Program is the only benefit

    Cons

    Very top heavy in management.

    Metrics is the bottom line, and they only see numbers in black and white. If sales is 9% below a plugged plan, then the company should lay off 9% of it's workforce.

    Impossible goals to meet, and very little work/life balance.

    To move up the ladder you are to be a yes man, and never disagree with leadership. Rather than fix problems they are hidden, and long term effects of bad processes and goals are left to future employees to deal with the mess.

    Short term goals are a priority that will most definitely sacrifice the long term goals of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, and stop giving impossible stretch goals to reach. The advice of "Do more with Less" is not a way to treat employees. They most certainly will start to do less with this treatment.

    Pros

    Good benefits, strong support system throughout the organization for leadership development and opportunities for career growth.

    Cons

    Continuous pressure to do more with less i.e. LEAN. There is constant restructuring and demartmental turnover. Days are long and work life balance is fare out of scope.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees perfect the processes pertaining to the roles they were hired into before dumping additional workload on them.

    Pros

    Good benefits and some good employees but at the time I was employed there was a lot of change occurring.

    Cons

    They constantly restructure their organization in an attempt to cut costs. There were a lot of leadership changes happening constantly so uncertainty ruled.

    Advice to Management

    Let the business stabilize. Internal communication needs significant improvement.
