No opinion of CEO

I worked at UTC Aerospace Systems as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Mostly friendly coworkers
Interesting work
Acceptable pay

Cons

No personal feedback at all from management
HR has entirely too much power and even over rides management
Terminations without warning or cause given
Barely functional equipment for test technicians
Absurdly preferential treatment for certain employees
It's less about how well you do your job and more about schmoozing the right people

Advice to Management

Treat all employees fairly and even handedly, including your contracted workers

    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    CI, Lean Mfg, ACE. Over all complany plan and development is in line for success

    Cons

    Layers of management and cover up by the Goodrich management about not letting United Technology know about the corruption and how inept the management is. Supply Chain has four layers of managers, justifying their work by helping each other; Supply Chain Quality (CV) became a quality manager after she was a secretary. All of them got promoted by going to the University of Phoenix and getting a bubble gum degree. The Supply chain team only knows what they learned in the Company through the years

    Advice to Management

    Share with UTC and come clean about the 787 program issues

    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people and the Goodrich people philosophy that is a reflection of the companies good days with strong leadership, open communication, and focus on work life balance.

    Cons

    The Utc acquisition has caused lack of job security, increased workload, unattainable goals and lack of people resources because of inadequate planning in the reductions in force and loss of good talent through voluntary attrition because they realize its a job and if your looking for a career go elsewhere that has adequate training programs, mentor ship, leadership development and career ladders. One pro is HR now recognizes the opportunity as a key asset to their team who was only with the company for a few months has left for theses reasons too.

    Think long and hard before going to this company. If your a member of a diverse group the likely reason your getting the job isn't because of your skill either it's because Utc has diversity goals and they are well in the red on meeting.

    Good luck but something's better than nothing!

    Advice to Management

    Look who is in HR leadership at the director level evaluate their competence. Prioritize culture and employee training and career development
