    Happiness depends on position

    May 28, 2014 - Senior Engineer in Windsor Locks, CT

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    UTC employee scholar program (used to be better when they had no cap on amt of degrees and annual expense cap) they now only cover 1 degree of each level (Bachelors, Masters, PHD) and a max of 15k a year. Lots of employee engagement groups in homebase like Windsor Locks, CT Job can be laid back or can be job from hell depending on the position and what program you are working.

    Cons

    I have friends that work for certain programs and work a minimum of 50-60 hrs a week and weekends... so choose a position carefully if work/life balance is important to you. There are some positions in certain programs that have great work/life balance and flexibility...its just about finding the right one. No trust for upper management it feels Salary is not competive once you have been with the company for a long time, yearly raises suck (2-3% is the avg) so make sure you negotiate your salary coming in.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance and flexible work schedule. Everyone was really friendly and always willing to teach you something if you asked.

    Cons

    A lot of red tape surrounding everything. Accomplishing something simple took several days. Sometimes days felt like a waste since I couldn't get anything productive done.

    UTC Aerospace Systems is not an employer to work for

    Oct 20, 2014 - Manufacturing Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Interesting technology and the older work force is dedicated and knowledgable

    Cons

    I worked at Hamilton Standard then Sundstrand Including the merger with Goodrich. The merger is said to be a success but it is not. Goodrich was a better managed company with a family atmosphere that UTC eliminated. There is in fighting because you can only have so much management after a merger and it is a dog eat dog culture. The UTC pension plan is eliminated, most of the manufacturing moved oversee's, the hourly work force is disrespected and minimized, new leadership put in place is clueless and the salary work force has been reduced to a point where unpaid overtime is expected. Moral is poor and experienced workers are retiring or leaving. Interns like it because they are exposed to aerospace technology and given lots of responsibility. Then once they have been there awhile and realize promotions are political not based on merit and work life balance is poor they leave. To top it off HR is in the pocket of management and never follows through on complaints.
