  5. "Comfortable place to work but difficult to grow"

    I have been working at United Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Fairly competitive PTO and family leave
    -Opportunities to move around a lot if you'd like
    -Plenty of leadership programs
    -Depending on the department you work for, training opportunities
    -Additional degrees are paid in full if approved by manager

    Cons

    -Difficult to rise up the ranks due to 1) age gap and 2) extremely saturated management hierarchy
    -Way too many layers of management, susceptible to turning work into "updating the charts"
    -IT is antiquated (I'm not talking about IT support, I'm talking about tools to do your job)
    -Note to those who heard UTC has a good education reimbursement program: as of 2019, it has changed so you need to stay with the company for a couple years or pay the tuition back (I still encourage you to do it because you'll probably be there for several years anyways but just an FYI)

    Advice to Management

    I like the new CTO, he brings a fresh perspective that caters to the younger generation that is needed to keep the company afloat. A lot of engineers are taking the retirement packages offered so pulling in young talent is super important.

    I'd also encourage flatter organizations.
