    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    + Employee Scholar Program seemingly best in the business.
    + Opportunities are endless.
    + Deliberate strides in the right direction with benefits, flexible schedules, workplace, and culture.

    Cons

    -Still prone to challenges of a large conglomerate. Slow, bureaucratic, and political at times. Renewed focus however to continue to combat that, removing barriers, and remaining competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on people first and the results will come.

    I worked at UTC Aerospace Systems (More than a year)

    Pros

    You gain a lot of knowledge on nacelles and learn a lot of skills depending on the project you're in. I learned CATIA, Patran/Nastran.

    Cons

    The drive was far for me.

    Pros

    Great location but likely to close in favor of low cost location.

    Cons

    The UTC corporation bought our business unit and immediately started taking away benefits in the name of some one company mumbo jumbo. Funny how that always seems to result people losing rather than gaining benefits. They have eliminated profit sharing and a stock purchase plan.

    Pros

    Landing Systems leadership is second to none. They demonstrate mutual trust and respect. They have unwavering ethics and genuinely care about this business and its employees. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    Lack of resources can be stressful. Benefits are sub-par for an organization this size. Central UTAS and UTC can be crippling and short sited. They often dictate business initiatives without understanding the impact outside of their "ivory tower"

    Advice to Management

    Overall, this is a great place to work.

    Pros

    Benefits are great - lots of help with education payments.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. Takes 20 approvals to do anything around here.

    Advice to Management

    Empower people to be able to make decisions without 20 approvals.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, interesting and varied products, fascinating customers, potential is there for the company to be VERY successful and VERY profitable.

    Cons

    Company no longer values their employees, customers, or suppliers. This company used to drive for excellence and quality, now it is simply driving for whatever arbitrary goal management has set for the week/month/quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to and actually live, reward, and promote the values in your 4 gears, mission statements, etc. There is a reason someone thought these up and put them on the wall, so walk the talk and follow the instructions. If you concentrate on building positive win-win genuine relationships with customers, suppliers, and employees, and get out o the way, things will take care of themselves.

    I have been working at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is good, benefits are good (but health insurance is getting worse), management is respectful of personal time, interesting and challenging work

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can be a killer, hard to change the "this is the way we've always done it" syndrome, too much micro-management

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key, talk to us more, let us know what's going on with the business; let us know when there's changes in personnel and management; let us in on the business forecast. Trust your people, give us freedom to do our jobs.

    I worked at UTC Aerospace Systems full-time

    Pros

    UTC overall was nice because of a lot of the co-workers.

    Cons

    Managment was pretty rough most of the time unfortunately. Usually pushing for more production even though there was a massive shortage of parts.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of the employees.
