    I worked at Carrier full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Variety of opportunity
    Great people to work with
    Great channel partners
    Fun marketing events

    Cons

    Company is very manufacturing and research focused
    Marketing budgets are limited for the size of company and slashed quickly to help save money on quarterly reports
    Investment in technology in marketing is even less and often an afterthought when planning

    Advice to Management

    Partially due to being a large company, the corporate leaders are disconnected from the dealers in the channel. They are more focused on earning reports and don't seem to understand how the channel functions and how executive decisions affect those who support the channel and their loyalty to the brands.
