    I worked at Kidde full-time

    Pros

    The work was interesting and the timelines were reasonable.

    Expectations of employee and the work life balance were not always realistic. Always expected to spend excess time for limited reward.

    Its been a while since I have worked at UTC but left as I felt under-appreciated as an employee.

    Pros

    It's a job. Don't make it a career

    Big on ethics just not their own.
