    I worked at Carrier full-time

    Pros

    Compensation was fair, workload was reasonable and respect among the teams was rather good.

    Cons

    In a state of constant change, focus on products and walking away from the higher margin service business will present other challenges when it comes to repurchase of future equipment by customers. There was a false sense of market share when it came to the big chillers.

    Advice to Management

    Implement VOC and customer focus groups to get closer to your customers. Listen better to your front line employees and bring outside leadership to the organization. Too many leaders are organically promoted in the organization which inhibits diverse perspectives.
