I worked at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time

Pros

A good place to learn the aerospace business; excellent upward mobility for people straight from college, especially if they work toward an MBA; the company will reimburse 100% of the cost for any degree, upon manager approval. Longevity with the company is highly valued.

Cons

Since the takeover, everything is secondary to "making the numbers" each quarter causing high pressure and disruption; manufacturing, design and research jobs are being exported to India, making people wonder about job security; radical transformation of work rules and the facility makes meeting goals very frustrating; every month more good people quit leaving the survivors demoralized; compensation has been cut since the UTC takeover.

Advice to Management

Show that you value the employees in ways that matter, like working conditions, pay and benefits, not just talk. Work to change people's perception that they are just a cost to be reduced, and that the plant is in the process of being outsourced.

    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paid tuition and experience to take to another company.

    Cons

    Only concerned with numbers and couldn't care less about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders instead of micro managers. Take care of your employees and understand that they are your success.
