    I worked at OTIS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance Excellent reimbursement for achieving higher education

    Cons

    Feels a lot like a filbert cartoon Not for the ambitious Salaries are flat (enter around 60-70K in 5 years you’ll be somewhere around 80-100k). Sounds like a wide range but when you break it out no matter how hard you work you’re not going to get more then 5% year. Very unambitous. No big ideas. Everything is tinkering on the edges. The big ideas exist in “disruption corners” that never are taken seriously. The last major disruption that the core business embraced simply wasn’t as profitable and differentiating as management had hoped

    I worked at OTIS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Freedom to perform work. Company demands performance but allows there to be a sense of 'as long as you do your job well, we aren't as concerned with how or when you do it'.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in the ocean of employees. Managers care about their direct employees but you don't get the same feel from regional or corporate. Lack of training and plenty of ambiguity for people transitioning into elevator industry. Company is trying to meet a 'quota' of so many women in senior positions. I'm all about equality and progression of women and minorities in management but this should have been equal from the start rather than trying to 'catch up' in a matter of years.
