    I worked at United Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Free coffee. I can't enter at least 5 words for Pros., if I don't have it.

    Cons

    Very stressful environment. Det-Tronics / UTC management are destroy a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Det-Tronics was family oriented. Knowledgeable people was a key for company success, not anymore. Det-Tronics / UTC management are looking for numbers and how you get it doesn't matter. I have heard from manager: "Can you work a little bit more"? Salary people are working 45-50 hrs for pass three years. People are leaving Det-Tronics. I would not recommend this company to anyone. can't find review for Det-Tronics on Glassdoor anymore.

    I have been working at United Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Employee Scholar Plan, Generous Pay, Promotion Opportunities

    Cons

    It is a big corporation, so all the cons usually associated with those.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology, which is funny since it is in our name, but we lag behind competitors all over the place with systems to manage our operations.

    I have been working at United Technologies full-time

    Pros

    My last job I worked for a small to midsize company. Being at UTC I learned how political a large corporation can be. I gained experience in not being able to think for myself and having someone above me who has no experience in the field, tell me what to do next. I've read a lot of the comments on this string and it is true. This place moves so slow and you better ask permission before you do something as simple as schedule a meeting. It is crazy.

    Cons

    People with no experience in a field trying to keep their job so they play politics and kiss up. Lots of actors here. I worked in a start up before my last job and what is funny about this place is how it slaps the word digital on everything and thinks it is so but its not.

    Advice to Management

    You need to fix the old culture of haves and have nots. I'm on GD today looking for a new job. Kind of bummed out as I was hoping this place would live up to the hype.

    Pros

    The benefits are slowly improving.

    Cons

    A very toxic culture. They bait and switch when they hire you. There is no respect for work experience and little tolerance for diversity of any kind. They pretend to embrace forward thinking processes but because most individuals have been there so long, the new processes and behaviors are not adopted. There is no tolerance for criticism so you dare not speak up or there will be retaliation either overt or passive aggressive. Bullying is fully tolerated, in fact it may be a requirement for success and bad behaviors of the worst kind are totally overlooked as long as you are good data technician and work for the right person.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to know what to say, all the feedback rarely makes it to management and when it does, it is rationalized and explained away.
