Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – January 19, 2017
Still an excellent place to work, It was better under Goodrich management but it's still a good place. The pay is good, the facilities need upgrading. The company is staffed with lots of very experienced manufacturing and design personnel, which is a rare find. They actually make things here as opposed to outsourcing everything.
Very strict work procedures and not stable employment
Manufacturing Line Worker (Former Employee) – Burnsville, MN – October 20, 2016
The work environment was good with an emphasis on safety procedures and safe guards on equipment. I learned many manufacturing skills and what it takes to succeed. The plant employees are very friendly and helpful. The management however is not very helpful when it comes to advancement opportunities.
Power Electronics Engineer (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – January 2, 2017
United Technologies was a wonderful experience for a young college student to get a feel of a future career as an engineer. The four years I worked as an engineer was an amazing and rewarding experience. I grew as a young adult and very skilled engineer.
growth opportunities, continuing education and benefits
Staff Analyst, Engineering (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 1, 2016
UTAS is a place for people who do not have any other responsibilities other than their job. If you are not looking for no work/life balance then this is the place for you.
Management is sub par at the most and do not plan well. They bleed their employees dry until they quit, get fired or laid off. They have no regard for Employee feedback and do not provide accurate information to the executive level leadership. Everything is critical and Program Managers do not follow schedule.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – January 3, 2017
The management was very helpful. During my internship, there was a free ice cream cone machine so that was very nice. The technicians in the lab showed me a lot. I learned a lot about different tools and got to work with my hands numerous amounts of times.
Technology (Current Employee) – United States – November 14, 2016
Salary is good. However, health benefits are THE WORST I've seen. Borderline illegal. Management is inefficient and is more focused on multiple international meetings rather than getting anything accomplished. This is definitely not a place for someone in the Software world. Be warned.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 14, 2016
Otis is an industry leader focused on providing a safe work environment for their field mechanics and reducing product liability by selling solutions to customers and being selective in which elevators they allow into their portfolio. Starting pay is competitive, but annual increases are based on the management's subjective opinion. If you want an actual raise, you must have negotiating leverage. Software systems are out of date which can be frustrating if you are on the customer service or operations management side.
flexibility in terms of hours and being in the office
systems are frustrating, operations and sales employees often do not get along which creates a tense work environment
Technical Specialist (Former Employee) – East Hartford, CT – April 30, 2016
At one time, UTC was a company that encouraged employees to grow opportunities and become more versatile and valuable to the company. Over the last few years, the company has taken the focus off employee growth and training. It is a decent place for young people to get a start, but it is not a company to stay with for the long term. Get some experience and get out.
Competitive compensation. Access to latest technology
Anonymous former employee (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 8, 2016
United Technologies is truly the best company at which I have been employed. They understand the concept of work/life balance and reward their employees handsomely.
Further, their employee scholar program is the best! There is no excuse for not getting your education if you work at UTC. Even in a layoff after a business relocation, the company gave its laid off employees four years of education.
I am proud to say I was a UTC employee and wish I still was!
Employee scholar, great benefits, good pay, good work/life balance
SAP Business Analyst - Supply Chain (Former Employee) – Independence, OH – November 10, 2016
UTC is a gigantic corporation. Being so large, there would appear to be ample opportunity for career advancement within and outside of its various business units. However, there appears to be favoritism at work, especially when considering UTC has grown as large as it has by buying other smaller corporations. Depending on where you started in the business, your career might be limited if you were a part of one of those acquired business units (see Goodrich).
Large company, multi-national, broad portfolio
Focused on stock price at expense of employee morale, Yes Man culture
Technician (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 4, 2016
I like my manager and co-workers. Helpful environment. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we have a successful EVA mission. The most unfavorable part is when there are sudden unplanned scheduled changes, but even that usually is not that bad.
United Technologies is an outstanding corporation. I learned so much about finance and myself.
Specialist (Former Employee) – East Hartford, CT – September 19, 2016
I had an exceptional career with United Technologies. I traveled and had experiences only one could dream of. I was laid off in December of 2008. I understand being a Financial Analyst why they laid off 7,500 salaried employees. Many had 25+ years. They could hire younger people pay them have the wage I was making and save the company a considerable amount of money. It's been a challenge finding suitable employment in this field. Unfortunately, I understand this happens with many individuals after working at UTC.
