    I have been working at United Technologies

    Pros

    Great ability to define strategy and use of ACE. Communication from the top via meetings and webinars are good. Visual Controls guide the business units/departments.

    Cons

    Lack ability to execute to the plan due to high employee turnover. Leadership style is too political, disregards experienced advice, which threatens ability to work as a team. Leadership culture does not foster respect for legacy employees (Goodrich) and is not a united front of effort.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to build and trust your teams. Have respect for all persons and they will accomplish amazing work. Flatten organization, less centeralize management. Top down control is too slow for a global economy and ability to respond to customers.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at United Technologies for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, great company, great office. So many opportunities to get out into DC and get exposure to the political scene (and the aerospace/defense field). Exposure to high-level people as well.

    Cons

    Could have been more long-term projects for the interns. Summer is slow regardless, but lots of days where not much was going on.
