"First, build relationships and do not burn bridges if you want to reach the senior most ranks. As big as the company is, the top senior leadership group is actually small. And although performance is critical always, having great relationships are just as important. Second, build mentoring relationships, and don't limit your mentors to people who look like you. There are many great people in this company who want to be mentors and allies - you can find somebody if you look for them. Lastly, as an aerospace and defense business, this company is still somewhat male-dominated, but SERIOUSLY making progress. I wouldn't still be here if I didn't see evidence of that."

"Culture varies between departments and sections. Some groups/leaders are more flexible than others, and some groups/leaders are more supportive of female engineers. Find other women in and out of your department to relate to. Find mentors, men or women, who will advocate for you to their peers."

I also love how much UTC encourages ongoing learning: they are fully funding my current masters degree and might even fund another. This is not a "hip" office environment with fun benefits like free gyms or lunches, but the benefits are solid and flexibility is EXCELLENT. I have never had work-life balance issues here. My one note is that if you wish to see significant changes in your pay, you need to be a truly exceptional employee and need to document your successes in order to advocate for raises. Yearly merit increases themselves are very small, so if you want to make money moves, you truly need to be proactive."

"I have been with the company for more than 13 years , always had a work environment and support. "
"Great place to work. Women are treated with respect. I feel like we are treated equally. Recently our company added PAID parental leave for fathers and people who adopt. I was impressed since many companies only allow family leave (unpaid) and only provide some sort of paid leave to women who have a bay."
"There's lots of ways to be empowered. There's a zero tolerance policy on sexual harassment or gender discrimination, but I don't even need to deal with that because I haven't had a single instance where I came close to that. The climate is very welcoming and your ideas will not be belittled."
"I have never been discriminated against for being a woman. I have always been treated as an equal person on the level as human being. I have been treated according to my level of expertise in the field but never in a negative way. "
"There is still a large gap in terms of the number of women versus men, which I imagine this is the case for every other aerospace company. The department I am in is about 30% women, and I have never felt disrespected due to my gender,"
"You will not get support so you need to manage your own career. You are expected to overlook when other folks don't do their job, yet not complain. Don't go to HR unless you have no other path, they are not responsive to harassment concerns."

"I started working at one of UTC’s business units as a temporary employee over 25 years ago. Once hired in a permanent role, I took advantage of the Employee Scholar Program to complete my undergraduate degree and MBA. I’ve relocated several times in order to take advantage of more challenging career opportunities and recently became an executive with the company. Come join us! Take advantage of our benefits and career opportunities to grow with us! I can assure you that joining UTC was the best career decision I ever made."

The commitment to "Paradigm for Parity" (50% female executives by 2030) makes this a great place for talented, hard-working women looking to climb the ladder. "
"There are many people supportive of the needs of women and men that need flexibility for family. Not every job can have as much flexibility and that's ok - but there are plenty of jobs that do allow for flexibility. When I had my first child, I took 6 months off, I came back part time . I was part time and flexing - working partially at home and in the office - this was awesome 20 years ago! I stayed part time for 12 years and was able to move around to different positions to add to my skill set. I was even promoted to management when I was part time. "
"Still some work to do in terms of promoting diversity for POC and women in management positions. Have been fortunate to have supervisors that were very understanding of my flexible needs, without formal requirement of UTfleX."

"There are a lot of great things about working at UTC. One of my favorite things in the Women's Employee Resource Group. My site has an active and great group of members. I have had many male ally managers support me in my day to day work and promotions."
"I have been given many opportunities along with the necessary support to grow throughout my career, and have never felt overlooked or at a disadvantage because I'm a woman. It is a great company to work for."
"As a young women starting her career and trying to find the balance to excel as a leader, UTC has not provided me with the adequate support to grow."
"Not only they treat me as part of the group regardless my sex, they also don't mind that I'm way younger than most and new to the industry. I feel heard and appreciated."
"Overall, women are treated fairly at UTAS. However, in Engineering, there is still a large discrepancy in the number of male and female engineers. There could also be improvement in the number of women in technical and management positions."
"I think UTC has made strides in gender equality, women in leadership, and fair treatment of all employees. As a female in tech, I have never felt like I have been passed over on opportunities due to my gender. I truly believe this company focuses on who is the right person for the job, and ensuring all employees are working on their development. While many people may point and say "look there are not that many female executives in the technical disciplines" but the truth is - it is not disproportionate to the percentage of women with the experience to lead in such high roles. I believe in UTC's paradigm for parity campaign and feel empowered to keep growing my career."
"It's a great place to meet other talented and hard working women."
"Recent improvements to the maternity/parental leave policies have been nice. Flexible part-time or full-time schedules can be worked out, they are open to some working from home -- I have really felt in control of my work days/hours, especially since having kids, and I've appreciated that as long as my work is getting done (and done well), no one has objected to changing my schedule up a bit here and there."
"This company recognizes hard work. So work hard, let your voice be heard, literally take a seat at the table and ensure to identify a mentor. "
"Don't be fooled by the heavy manufacturing and technology and assuming it's a mans world; it's absolutely a place where women can thrive! "

"you are able to have work life balance. This company is flexible with school schedules and any other reason you have for flexing your hours. Many of the people in our group takes advantage of the Uflex benifit"
"It is a wonderful place and a very safe place to work"
"The manufacturing / engineering industry is predominately male dominated industry, as is our company. This is also a very conservative culture but striving very hard for inclusion of all types of diversity. It is not easy to find a mentor and, as women, we tend to be paving new paths every day here. If you are persistent and willing to work hard to break through "norms", there is great opportunity at UTAS. I started my career as a secretary and was able to obtain two degrees (paid for by UTAS), travel the world, work part time and nights (while my children were young) and now hold a leadership position. Not easy - but very possible!!"
"There is significant opportunity for career growth, and movement within the corporation. However, the gender gap still exists primarily within the engineering discipline. Expect to have to fight for the same treatment as men in similar roles. Also be prepared for the stereotypical judgment to still exist where strong and aggressive women are consider "emotional". Industry wise, UTAS/UTC does what they can but a true culture change is required to see beyond the gender."
"UTC has better parental benefits than most other companies that I've looked seen, but the medical coverage is expensive. Women are treated with respect and the few incidents of disrespect that I have witnessed/experienced have been taken very seriously."
"The company truly values its employees and is committed to diversity and inclusion"
"This has been a great place to work as a new hire. Not as many women in my group but everyone is kind and helpful."
"I would tell another woman that UTC is very accommodating to working mothers. Also, they are very devoted to having a gender parity in all leadership levels by 2030. "
"If you thought you knew the culture of UTAS before, be sure to look again. The company is making big strides toward work/life balance and building an inclusive, empowered workforce. Policies are changing and manager training is widespread."
"I would tell her that the odds are stacked in her favor because she's a woman. I feel that our company promotes women and minorities ahead of white males."
"Everyone has a chance to have their voice heard. Policies and flex hours are amazing for work/life balance."
" Great work environment with flexible work schedule allowed and generous benefits."
"Great place to work. Take your career into your own hands or get a mentor to help you with career development. "
"United Technologies gives me the ability to constantly challenge myself and develop skills I need now and in the future. Their products move the world and the focus on ethics, people and culture make me proud to work here. UTC ERG groups are growing and the networks support each other to make a difference."
"Don't be afraid to speak up. Be willing to make decisions to keep projects moving forward."
"I believe that the intent is to be diverse and have opportunities for women, but improvements are needed."
"You have the opportunity to pursue all career aspirations that interest you. Seek mentors and sponsors to help you along your journey and success will follow!"
"There are many good opportunities but it is up to the individual to make their own career. I still see some pockets of subtle discrimination and an old boys club mentality. "
"Be sure you have what you want going in to the position."
"The culture needs to change- it's a lot of old white men in my group, with some very conservative views. It's not inclusive. A push to actually include more people of different gender and of different race would be highly beneficial. "
"This is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door in the aerospace industry. There are many business units under the UTC umbrella and you have the ability to explore all through rotational programs, internships, or full time positions. "
"I like my work and I think there are a lot of kind people at my job. I especially think that the other women are kind and supportive. I struggle with some of the men I work with, some have a difficult time working with women because their egos get in the way."
"UTC promotes women in a variety of ways, including its women-led Employee Resource Groups. The Women ERGs facilitate events to develop women's professional skills, cultivate learning, and become active in the local communities via outreach programs. We also provide excellent benefits for maternity and parental leave."
"There are plenty of opportunities for advancement for women to move into higher level positions."
"Lots of opportunities at UTC if you are motivated and ambitious. "
"Continue to engage and insert ourselves in projects or meetings- be noticed! "
"UTC offers great work life balance. UTC is a company that values culture and diversity. "
"nice company to work at with decent pay, pretty flexible on working schedule. Woman did not get enough promotions here at this company. "
"It depends on the department and the business unit within UTC. Typically in Operations, it is a heavily male-dominated area. Most of the time it feel's like a "boys' club". Most people are respectful, but you do have to have a tougher skin when you're the only female out of 30 men on your team. Choose your manager wisely. Not all managers at UTC support gender diversity, or diversity in general."
"I have worked here for almost 30 years, experienced many ups and downs. Aerospace has been a male dominated field but more and more women are joining us and finding many opportunities awaiting them. United Technologies embraces and encourages diversity. Diversity makes us better, stronger, brighter! "
"they are in right track to promote women and their policies now reflect that"
"I have not used the maternity leave, but I've been told you get 6 weeks, and can use an additional week of 'personal time'. Even after the maternity leave period, the UTCflex program makes it easy to work from home a couple days a week to be with your newborn if you want/need."
"Competitive pay, good benefits, flexible work hours, very diverse workforce, a lot of diversity in management positions, equality initiatives and corporate goals, and the Re-Empower program that helps professionals who have had to take a leave from their careers to re-enter the workforce"
"Say "sorry" only when appropriate, not often. It is important to claim responsibility, but a more effective approach would be to follow it up with course of action to mitigate the situation. I see women default to say "sorry" before their male counterparts, and many times when no one is even at fault. I work in a male dominated environment and luckily most have been respectful. Nobody likes to be at fault and it doesn't help to preemptively accept blame. Providing solutions and executing actions is one of the many ways to progress."
"Great place and environment to work. Women are respected and valued. "
"Executive Management is focused on diversity and inclusion and always looking at ways to improve for employees."
