Perfect Safety, Perfect Quality
Quality Inspector II (Current Employee), Wilson, NCAugust 18, 2015
The most important part of my job is ensuring that product is to the customers specifications. Knowing that the products that are manufactured are there to save lives, keeps me motivated daily. Dealing with numerous customers and qualifications are very important to me.
As with all major companies there are some down falls, either its not getting the recognition that you feel you deserve or compensation for the time you do put into a project.
Overall, UTC is an upstanding place to work and make a career out of.

Extremely stressful
Quality Inspector (Former Employee), Foley, Al.August 18, 2015
Pros: 401k, holidays, and overtime pay
Cons: expensive insurance, lack of empathy toward personal situations of their employees, good ole boys system deep in management
Very stressful work place with contradictory management. As a quality inspector, my job was to approve manufactured components to be shipped to the customer. Emphasis should have been on quality, safety, customer satisfaction. Instead, it was on meeting tact times and ship dates. This company is all about numbers and profit, not employees or quality products.
The employees are mere tools. This company is successful because they offer decent wages in a wage poor area. Their benefits are mediocre, at best, but something is better than nothing.

Great job....BUT
Contract Tooling Engineer (Former Employee), Riverside CAJune 24, 2015
Pros: GREAT place to work
Cons: Corporate policy isn't reality
Due to the UTC policy of limiting contractors to a 24 month assignment, our whole department will be wiped out by July 31st, Tooling Engineers, Tool Designers and NC Programmers. I can't for the life me, understand why there are limits in terms on length of employment.

It really doesn't make any sense, to let people go, and then have new people come in, have them trained, and then as they get up to speed,and productive to only let them go as they are nearing their 24 month contract.

The corporate people need to take a look and see what havoc they are causing when the wipe out an entire department, that basically is the support and backbone of all the production that goes on, here at the Riverside facility.

If the 2 year corporate policy has been determined by some kind of UTC technical verbiage, then show me the policy, because nobody seems to know where it is written that we can't stay past our two years.

Corporate, you guys need to pull your heads out, and look at reality. Show us the policy and give us a real reason why..

Average workplace
instrument builder (Current Employee), Burnsville, MNJune 10, 2015
Pros: I am given full responsibility to plan my day
Cons: I do not have enough work in my area to fill my day
I come into work and perform the tasks I am given, but they do not challenge me enough. I get bored because I am not cross-trained in enough areas to multitask throughout the day. Some of my tasks take a long time and I could be doing other things while I wait. I would like to pushed with a steady workload and provide a benefit to the company I work for while I am getting paid. The hardest thing about my job is trying to explain to my supervisor that I would like to learn more, but he doesn't listen. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I work with.

Good place to work and gain corporate experience. Was a very corporate environment that is progressing towards creating an employee culture but not at the peak yet. Look forward to see where UTC will go in the next 10 years.

Not worth the hassle
Engineer (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZMay 21, 2015
Pros: The older employees are a great bunch
Cons: Pathetic management, no work life balance, revolving door of personnel
This review primarily discusses the Phoenix, AZ location. There is a constant air of fear and poor management in this location. The revolving door of hiring and firing has everyone on edge. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for the way they fire people or for the methods of hiring replacements. They seem to want to fail as they keep firing the best workers and replacing them with people who are so inept that they cannot succeed. In return the company expects people to work more than 40 hours a week to compensate for the ineptitude of management and the pathetic work of the new hires. I wouldn't recommend this train wreck to anyone. Avoid the ESC at UTAS at all costs.

Work/Life Balance is almost enough to make me stay despite the terrible management
Business Development Manager (Current Employee), Brea, CAMay 8, 2015
Reorganization after reorganization after reorganization after layoffs and fired managers and more reorganization has made the management structure and leadership (at least of the part of UTC that I work for) a complete and total mess. It's the exact reason I am looking to leave the company after being with them for 10 years. Co-workers and the work life balance are great. I will miss them, I'm sure. But I can't deal any longer with having 3 managers all in different states who don't communicate with each other and who give me conflicting objectives and instructions. Its impossible to succeed. Maybe someday they'll get their act together and UTC will be a great place to work again, but many of the good employees are getting tired of trying to wait it out.

Daily interaction with various departments makes work day fly by
Staff Quality Engineer (Former Employee), Westford, MAApril 17, 2015
Small close knit culture transitioning into a larger corporation environment as Goodrich was acquired by UTC and merged with Hamilton Sundsrand. I was exposed to the Post Delivery Service side of the business as I was supporting a sustainment program working closely with the Logistic team and the use of the SAP ERP system.

Co Workers are considerate and professional. Local Management is supportive of Continuous Improvements linked to the overall Corporate initiatives flow out to the various SBUs. Management follows the principles of Standard Work and role specific responsibilities.

The hardest part of the job for me was having knowledge and personal experiences to share with coworkers but that knowledge or experiences were considered beyond the scope of my defined role.

The most enjoyable part of my job was when what iI did made some one else's down stream job easier to accomplish.

Good place to work. Nice atmosphere.
Engineering Admin (Current Employee), Riverside, CAApril 15, 2015
Pros: Contract pay
Cons: healthcare
UTC is a great place to work. I've learned so much more since my employment began. Management is amazing. They understand their employees know what they're doing and give them the freedom to get their work done independently. Coworkers are typically very pleasant and easy to work with.
