      Pros

      UTC is a huge corporation, but the business units have a lot of freedom in the way they operate. For this reason you may have totally different experience depending on the unit you work for. You need to learn how the corporation works and then you can accomplish a lot if you are ambitious.

      Cons

      Big global corporation. It is hard to hire new engineers in the USA. It is also easy to be lazy and imitate work.
