    Pros

    The employee scholar program is second to none when it comes to giving employees opportunities to gain additional education beyond whatever they bring to the company. It is not as generous as in the past, but it is still better than any other education benefit that I have heard of from any other company that is provided to ALL employees. The company overall is a good place to work and have opportunities to grow and develop as an employee.

    Cons

    The businesses within UTC can be a bit siloed, and depending on what organization you are a part of and your function, it can feel difficult, if not impossible, to emerge from that place. The brand is not exciting either.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more opportunities for businesses to work across one another.

    Pros

    Good people across the company. The company pays leaders well, and there is a lot of opportunity for cross company knowledge sharing. Great at buying key technologies and companies.

    Cons

    Choking bureaucracy with processes designed to the tee, but no bodies to implement any of the work. So even the smallest efforts require significant time, approvals, and money, and patience. Easier to buy growth than built it.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in focus areas that can improve speed to market and allow the company to grow. Encourage more innovation.
