I've worked on a contract basis for UTC Aerospace Systems for a year. It's been a very positive overall experience that has challenged me professionally in good ways and helped me advance the skills I have in my field.

Aftermarket Manager (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – May 11, 2018
A typical day consisted of customer telecoms, report preparation and the management of engineering output. Learned to manage the challenges of an entry into service of a new aircraft. Workplace culture was different from department to department. Aftermarket was supportive of the employee's needs at the same time the pace of work was demanding. The hardest part of the job was reaching maximum output from employees. The most enjoyable was the connections with employees, customers, and vendors.
Terrible culture and management unwilling to adapt to changes
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) – Rome, NY – May 6, 2018
Management is committed to keep perpetuating the inefficiencies for the sake of tradition. There is a strong brown sniffing culture at the moment of getting a promotion. The people look sad in general and it has created a toxic work environment. Since the system is so broken, it relies heavily on manual input and long hours of work are expected. The management love appearances but it is just for show. I am surprised this place is operating without the FAA closing it down. This site operates without input/supervision from UTC, which has spoiled management into doing whatever they want... for decades.
Mechanical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 3, 2018
UTC is a great place to work regardless of what level you are. They are respectful, value you, and have great engineers. Management was tops, but unfortunately they outsourced many jobs overseas and laid off many people I doubt that location still exists.
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 2, 2018
It's all push push push. Hurry up and ship. Management doesn't support the quality team. No work life balance. Poor management, overall affects the employee morale. I highly wouldn't recommend this place for anyone.
The work itself was easy.
Poor management, no clear path for advancement, overworked, under paid.
Parts Inspector/packing (Former Employee) – Hodges, SC – April 24, 2018
I enjoyed the years I were there. I didn't like going from 8 hours to 12 because I have 3 children and it got kind of difficult. The co-workers , we got along really well, no issues with me. We had Holiday dinners with family and co-workers, traveled together, it was nice. I got along really well with all the Engineers, it was part of my job when I had issues with customers.
Intern (Former Employee) – Cheshire, CT – April 20, 2018
Even as an intern, I was well integrated into standard work flow. I got to see and learn a lot about the manufacturing process, and the employees were always willing to teach me about their work and how it is important
The way management treats employees is unfair and sometimes discriminating. HR only protects management and is not there for the employees. You're on your own. If you like being a phony individual to get ahead, this is the place for you. If you're a hard worker looking for recognition, look elsewhere.
Salary is fair
No work/life/balance, favoritism by management, lack of recognition
Assembler II (Former Employee) – Fairfield, CA – April 6, 2018
A typical day at work is being placed in a situation where you are overwhelmed and underpaid. I believe the pay is so low because it forces you to work overtime in order to survive. The benefit packages they offer are a disgrace to humanity and the way they treat their employees like robots did not sit well with me. The majority of their employees are bullied into sacrificing their mental health as well as their personal lives and holidays to assure they are not fired for insufficient reasoning. The only good thing they offer are the paid vacations and sick time which you will have to blow through in order to keep sane while taking that time away from UTC. That's only if it gets approved.
