    Pros

    Open and inviting culture, supportive management and leadership, satisfactory product portfolio, good benefits

    Questionable strategic vision and imperatives, change of organizational structure sometimes too frequent, questionable top level leadership, lack of focus in marketing, channel conflict, growing micro-management structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tighten strategy, direction and focus around product development/deployment, better manage and define channel partner strategy, establish stronger position within and buffer from parent organization, employ less micro-management, employ greater product manager accountability across all product categories, conduct more thorough and effective process in vetting better and more qualified new/potential employee candidates, improve change management

    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.

    Pros

    Very Ethical, Very Focused, Diverse in the industry, smart, innovative, best example of American ingenuity! Richard Meyers is the best military leader in the decades in the US having served as chairman of the joint chiefs, loyal smart, dedicated, UTC was wise to hiring him as a board member.

    Cons

    None - this is the most ethical company ibn the industry and dedicated to its customers - I can say nothing bad about it.

    Current Employee - Senior Strategy Manager in Tampa, FL

    Pros

    Intriguing portfolio of businesses for an aspiring general manager

    Cons

    Company appears to care very little about its people, their development, or their long-term fulfillment within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the hard strategic decisions...even if it results in writing down some acquisitions or abandoning previous pathways. Continuing to take hundreds of millions (or billions!) of dollars in restructuring charges each year has already let the cat out of the bag that things are not rosy, but committing to a strategy and then giving the employees time to execute it would help morale...and probably performance.

    I worked at United Technologies full-time

    Pros

    UTC is a very large and diverse company

    Cons

    Simplification and problems cannot be addressed in a timely manner. It takes FOREVER to get decisions made. This could be due to the fact that there is so many changes in leadership and BU's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and hold management accountable for their actions! There are so many changes in leadership that no one wants to be accountable for their actions so no one will make a decision. This stalls progress!
