AEROSPACE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – August 3, 2018
The people of company(the workers) are great and most everyone gets along. Management is however toxic and disregard people with families. Often expecting people to work 15 or more hours a day. There are many other workplace culture issues that have led to a lot of long time employees to recently leave for better treatment/pay for what is expected.
There are very few people who will genuinely care about you in this company. The "rank and yank" culture encourages even the most human entering this work environment to side-swipe and crush coworkers. There is no collaboration or team work. You're better off surviving among Velociraptors.
Pay was good, but you sacrifice your family, friends and health.
Working here will shave several years from your life.
There's a lot of room for improvement in all of the departments within the company
Assistant Technician (Current Employee) – Fairfield, CA – June 27, 2018
The workplace culture is very stressful and frustrating. It's either very busy or very slow, there's typically no in between. The hardest part of the job is the slow advancement and low salary. You do a lot more work than what they pay you. You also do tasks that are not part of your job description. The enjoyable part is you get to work with wonderful people who are going through the same struggle in the company.
Medical Insurance sucks, low salary, slow progression, very little advancement
Electronic Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 4, 2018
the products ,I was to work on were intermittent , which forced me to compete for work with overtime hogs from previous shift , which meant I either had to wait for an hour or so to work on something or go home with no work that night . The politics were horrible .
I really liked working here. I only left because they offered me a substantial Voluntary Separation Package for people to retire. My co-workers were friendly and professional, the office environment was clean, neat, well lit - lots of full length windows. They had flexible hours and paid overtime after 45 hours a week for full time employees. Managers were encouraging and not dog-eat-dog.
One downside was the tendency to not fully appreciate the time and cost needed to complete a project. We were always going over budget and slipping schedules. My immediate supervisor had a major health breakdown in the spring/summer of 2017 after working himself half to death to get a project done that was inadequately funded - and had "an aggressive schedule" (i.e. no allowance for inevitable, unforeseen design challenges). We also had to hire contract engineers who worked on a salary basis and then were worked 60 hour weeks with no overtime pay to finish the design work.
Pay. Benefits. People. Culture. Flextime.
Slowly becoming too bureaucratic, Too much paperwork. Scope creep. Poor project planning.
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.
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.
Production Control Assistant (Assembler) (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – March 20, 2018
Management and job culture was immensely horrible. No room for growth even if you're qualified and educated. Salary and Union make everyone compete against each other versus work together. Managers seems to lack knowledge in their departments and they do things in an unethical way. It goes against its gears of integrity, people, performance, and ideas.
Aircraft component technician and TPM Champion (Former Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – March 17, 2018
a good place to gain experience fair wages good management great work culture the most enjoyable part of the work are co-workers I have learned the testing and troubleshooting motors, control panel, pendant Hoist and Winch Rescue. The company provides the full reimbursement for school which is the best part of UTC
CNC Machine Operator (Former Employee) – 50 William White blvd. Pueblo,CO. 81001 – March 2, 2018
People there are nice and professional. It's a 12 hour day. Machine shop co-workers are really good at the job. Management is good. Hardest part of the job is the working shifts. Most enjoyable part of the job is the people and the benefits.
Working day and night shifts. Hard to have a home life.
