    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities for movement - many locations within a 30 minute driving area as well as many locations around the world if a move is preferred. You also do not get trapped in job situations for years on end, as movement is encouraged.

    Networking and being recognized is very easy due to the large but centralized company. Most employees have worked for and keep in touch with employees in other divisions, so there is no excuse to not have a reputation to work with.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are very low compared to similar jobs in the surrounding area. The employee scholar program is the only unique benefit, but if you do not intend to take advantage, UTC can be frustrating to work for.

    Low compensation is even harder to grasp due to the poor work life balance offered. Hours and face time expectations are high and there is always a shortage of heads to complete necessary tasks (even in the good economic times).

    Advice to Management

    Many employees work at UTC understanding their pay may be lower than similar jobs. The hard part is the lack of comp time, extremely stingy PTO policies, etc.

    Also - you pay in the (less than) 50th percentile, you retain employees that perform less than that mark. You lose the employees that are worth their salt to competitors who will compensate for performance.

    Pros

    They allow you to learn new things and technologies for advancing your career. When you work within the company, you have many chances to move around and find something else in a different location or in the same location if you would like. Very diverse.

    Cons

    Upper level management really needs to pay more attention to what is going on with the employees and the problems encountered. Their valuable input is sometimes ignored because someone is worried about upper level management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, even the guys at the bottom. If you want to bring people back to the company and earn trust, that is what you need to do.
