    Work life balance, pay, opportunities under the UTC umbrella, making opportunities endless. Diversity is highly discussed encouraged. Very good Educational benefits program, used to be the best in the industry. No company is perfect, this is one of the better ones.

    Advice to Management

    Believe that retaliation is real and comes in many forms and you can't stop it. Provide formal interpersonal training for entry and mid level managers and those that interact with the customer.
