    Pros

    Holidays (get the week between Christmas and New Years Every Year) and Vacations (just changed to 3 weeks per year for employees being there 1-5 years)

    Cons

    Clicks, Back Stabbing from Management, Don't care about Safety or the Environment unless they are afraid of getting fined. Don't care about people. Double standards for those not in the clicks.

    Advice to Management

    Get real leaders who know how to lead people not blame them for everything or belittle them.

    I have been working at United Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Large global company, financially sound .

    Cons

    UTC CEO, Greg Hayes, recently described UTC's women promotion criteria - "no turtle on a fence post". The screen is to guard against women being promoted who haven't earned it. There is no mention if men will now be subject to the same criteria.
    UTC has also announced that they have signed the "Parity by 2030" pledge. UTC, a company that helped put a man on the moon in 8 years, is committed to gender pay equality in 13 years.

    Advice to Management

    Actively abandon the "Turtle on a Fence Post" screen. It is absurd promotion criteria for anyone.

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

    Pros

    Technical experts to learn from and lots of growth potential across different programs. Education reimbursement. Flexible work schedule. Defined methods and processes.

    Cons

    Management doesnt get it on how to retain top talent. Lots of politics here. It's rare to work with people here who arent just trying to climb the ladder--who actually care about the product and doing the job right.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that even passionate, driven, intellgent employees aren't doing it only to feel good. No amount of team building makes up for taking away the 10% bonuses the pre-acquisition company used to give.
