    I worked at Carrier full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salaries and benefits are good. Most employees are friendly, helpful and cooperative. Most supervisors are understanding and fair. Promoting from within the company is encouraged. Carrier is owned by UTC as well as several other companies. If you're willing to relocate, this provides a lot of job opportunities.

    Cons

    There is normally more work than can be accomplished in a 40-hour work week. Every year managers have to decide which 20% of their department will not get a pay increase whether it is deserved or not. This is a UTC policy enforced at all their companies. Hiring freezes and lay-offs are determined by senior management and pushed down to lower level office workers. Out-sourcing and moving manufacturing out of the US has been on-going for over 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Immediate supervisors are pretty fair for the most part. Upper management makes decisions that affects employees without including lower levels of management in on the decision making process.

    Pros

    None to speak of...management disaster!

    Cons

    Treatment of employees is bad morale stinks they care about only a share holders pocket. Don't waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of your tails and wake up. Carrier was a good company at one time but those days are long past. Even customers agree.

    I have been working at Carrier full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work. Great education benefit. Lots of opportunities to develop yourself professionally. Good culture.

    Cons

    Strapped for resources. Limited opportunities for growth in career track.

    Advice to Management

    Develop additional opportunities for promotions and advancements (maybe tiers of positions similar to a consulting firm). This will help improve the culture to make it an outstanding place to work. Focus on providing resources necessary to accomplish business goals. If big picture goals require focus in other areas, communicate this to employees at all levels.
