    I worked at United Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    United is a great place to be at. I truly enjoyed working with everyone there and I would absolutely recommend this company to a friend.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel like the communication could be better. Everyone is very dedicated to the team but it would be nice to know what the larger strategic objectives of the company really consist of.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing a great job. I look forward to seeing what the company can do in the future even though I am no longer there.

    Pros

    Large company with many business units to work with/for. Great mission depending on which business you work for. Tons of opportunity for movement within the company. Excellent benefits package with an employee education program (tuition reimbursement) that's second to none. Lots of work to do.

    Cons

    UTC is a huge, multi-national organization that sometimes feels like a mom-and-pop shop. Corporate often has expectations of the business units that are ignored or significant push-back is applied ("we've ALWAYS done it this way, why do you want to change now?"). LOTS of work to do. Annual bonuses only apply to the Senior Management/Executive Level.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up adherence to policy (I know, you're already doing this, but individual BU leadership needs to take it more seriously). Hold management accountable, but also hold external contractors accountable when they don't deliver. Having the same company service your overall IT needs for 16+ years does not lend itself to efficient or effective operations. Make them re-bid periodically (every 3-5 years) to keep them honest and find savings for the company.

    I worked at United Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No pro's actually. Big corporate infrastructure. The story about the union and pension is just a story. Just get a paycheck and move on to something better.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. They literally have all this overhead for nothing. Temporary job get a paycheck for the meantime then move on.

    Advice to Management

    Tone down on the management more emphasis on labor one of those jobs that has an inspector for an inspector for an inspector and a manager that has two managers in the two managers have managers under them it's a joke.
