    I have been working at United Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If your into rework or having meeting all day this is a great place to work. communication, who needs communication? bagels on Friday!!!

    Cons

    under staffed , so UTC bring's in suit not technicians to do the actual work. Engineering constantly changing drawing because everything fails. Have huge plans and deadline's but no raw material or parts in stock. stockroom like everything else is unorganized. 30+ employees going into a "clean room". nothing clean about any room. meeting in break rooms, no restrooms, no lock on restroom doors because so many people go in/out and door knobs break, poor toilets. product on the ground, improper handling on material and components. open large doors in back for big shipments, WE have a FOD issue here people lets open the doors all up and also walk around in our smocks, after this go back into the clean room. favoritism at its most extreme.

    Advice to Management

    treat all your employees the same. management gets in at 7 A.M. it should not take until 9 A.M. every day with meetings. what can you talk about for 2 hours? we aren't building anything we rework and change drawings and revs!! whats taking so long. we have all these deadlines but we dont get provided the raw material or parts in stockroom to work. Then when we do its a rush then we go back to sitting on our hands while management if have their 9th meeting for the day. listen listen listen to your employee's, the employee's are the ones who touch the product who build the product who put there passion into the product. yet we get nothing , cant even find a restroom or a clock on the wall. is this FOXCONN!!!!!

    Pros

    The best reasons are non-existent. Reference the fact that they're having difficulty keeping employees in certain jobs at the Salem, Oregon location.

    Cons

    Sr. management operates with blinders on & does not listen to recommendations from line managers or employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at the stats of turnover in Operations. Act according to the data, not what HR wants you to hear. Perform exit interviews with all employees who leave the company. (Bypass HR)

    I have been working at United Technologies as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cannot think of any Pros

    Cons

    Cannot sync phone to Outlook
    If you have to work overtime, it has to be in the office, no remote access
    Cannot attend company meetings or volunteer for charity functions

    Advice to Management

    Minimize the restrictions on contractors accessibility and treat them as part of the team. I have contracted with several different companies, but this was truly the first time I truly felt like a second class citizen.
