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

    Pros

    Interesting product portfolio; nice people; executives are smart and forward thinking; autonomy given; winter holiday (office closed) in US between Christmas and New Years, vacation time allotted.

    Cons

    In the US there is little to no recognition of hard working employees. The technology support entity within UTC is slow to fix any problem. Middle management needs improvement. The lack of green initiatives at corporate offices is disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Use the work flex program and discuss with your employees. With all of the corporate formation changes, people are scared to ask for any flexibility. This goes against the program's purposes.

    Recognize good performers and praise them. Executives in this company are wonderful. Middle management needs improvement.

    Pros

    The employee scholar program.

    Cons

    If you like working a dead-end job, being underpaid and undervalued, you'll love working here.

    Advice to Management

    The hub and spoke business model doesn't work. The lack of customer focus is becoming fairly prevalent. Our competitors have most of our market share. Stop being narcissist and fix it! Mis-management will be Carrier's down fall.

    Pros

    The company offers great benefits, including one of the best continuing education programs that begin one year after your start date.

    Cons

    The cons are typical of large corporations. Work tends to move very slowly which becomes increasingly frustrating when you finalize tasks only to hit a road block at the next person in line.

    Advice to Management

    There is a large divide at the executive level. Lower level employees could benefit from more transparency.
