    I worked at United Technologies Climate, Controls & Security full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for training conferences, awesome benefits package, Military Differential Pay (any company within UTC), sick days separate from personal/vacation days, in-house clinic with nurse, company-provided safety glasses and footwear, good company social events, honoring of retirees, good longevity of employees. Good people that enjoyed spending time together off the clock and cared about the overall success of the company and each other.

    Cons

    The company needs an infusion of new technology and is becoming a bit of a dinosaur. I suggested innovations and additional features and the answer was, "we've never done that before and the customer didn't ask for it."

    Compensation was on the low side. I got a 14k jump when I went to my next position.

    Advice to Management

    You must set aside time for each employee to explore new technologies and experiment with innovation. HVAC industry is full of smart algorithms inside of old technology and needs a reboot.

    Pros

    The product is very valuable to companies and communities. it was comforting to know that we were providing such a valuable service.

    Cons

    Upper management does not communicate well at all. There is also a lack of communication between departments. It would seem that upper management encouraged this creating a competitive environment that is not conducive to providing successful customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing on ACE culture, they should be required to take a seminar on modern management communication.

    Pros

    There are some really good people who work here. People who know software and product development. Good location and somewhat flexible on your schedule, but it depends upon your manager.

    Cons

    The company has, somehow, perfected the most non-lean organization I have ever seen. Everything is hard. Processes like, order to fulfillment, product development gate process, product planning and development process (not Agile, but they say it is), are cumbersome and people don't know their roles or responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Quit making decisions without consulting those who are part of the process. Quit making product decisions without including those who know the products and customers. Quit managing up. Quit being so risk adverse, grow a spine, make a decision and support your team. Communicate to your team the business strategy, because no one really knows what it is.

    Pros

    Good classes. Tools, computer, car, training classes, good people in general.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. Everyone is payed the same regardless of merit.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people better so that techs don't leave as soon as they get some more money somewhere else. Your pay rate is below the market. With all the money we bring you in you should know better.
