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

Pros

Larger company.
Diverse portfolio of business.
Interesting product lines and child companies.
Potential for living in numerous locations if an employee wants to transfer jobs.

Cons

Larger company.
Six Sigma focus is not useful.
Compensation is average, and should be better.
Command and Control.
Discontinuity in IT systems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reevaluate ACE, and the relentless jamming-down-our-throats of it. We think a good majority of it is waste.
Provide monies for a serious upgrade to the facility.
Mutual Trust and Respect was a hallmark of Goodrich Corp. Practice it.
ACE is, overall, a good thing, yet its statistically-based focus is NOT lean or Lean Manufacturing. Goodrich Corp walked Lean a looong time, and was, overall, a pretty Lean company. ACE is muddling things.
Adopt a more employee-centric vacation policy which allows yearly carry-over.
CSC hasn't proven to be of benefit to our IT systems. Jury's still out I guess.

    Pros

    interesting work, some innovative products, nice people, great location adjacent to the Chula Vista marina, smart people in some of the lower levels of technical management

    Cons

    where do i start? management expects 50-60 hours worth of work in a 40 hour week. Many hourly employees work off the clock just to meet cost/schedule constraints. By California state law, this is illegal, but it happens anyway. If you dont perform to the level expected, you will be walked out in short order. Also, jobs are being shipped to low cost countries and people are being laid off as management tries to cut costs and please investors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to practice what you preach and learn to have original ideas rather than copying ways that other large companies work.
