    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.

    I have been working at United Technologies as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The location is fantastic. Small company feeling, with big corporation perks. Room to grow, with relocation required. Competitive salaries, product line is big so lots of areas to work in. Sometimes it might feel slow, just like any big company.

    Cons

    The room to develop might be contingent upon your willingness to move around or chase down the opportunity. Other than that there isn't another reason why would not work here, it's a great company.

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

    Pros

    Good to learn in a limited risk environment
    Good people
    Lots of education support
    Product is relevant
    Learned "best practices"

    Cons

    So process driven that your job can just be updating charts
    Forced culture
    Old school mentality
    Not many female leaders
    Utc corporate controls everything which makes supply chain tricky (when east coast needs to buy in)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less status charts, more trust in people

    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.

    Pros

    The people and culture is great. The employee benefits are some of best anywhere, especially the Employee Scholar Program. Work life balance is outstanding.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some really amazing and talented people. Products are leading edge and exciting. Many paths to success - not one defined path

    Cons

    Company is large, easy to get lost and become just a number. Important to establish connections with influential managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate barriers to truly flexible work arrangements - accept part time as a productive alternative to full time and you will have access to a tremendous amount of talent. This will require redefining positions
