Great corporate culture. Very collaborative and caring workforce. We're very proud of what we make here which is components that help our US and Allied Warfighters in defensive measures.

    I had to take intermittent time off during the week to accompany my partner to chemo treatments. It was never an issue with the company; they always allowed me to take off however much time I needed to. I will be forever grateful to them for that level of flexibility.

    We have just installed lactation rooms in the building. Clean, comfortable, great areas of privacy for new moms. We also provide paternity leave that has been very well received by the new dads.

The company is amazing and a great place to work. It is very male dominated, but I think that stems from the area in general that we work in. Women are slowly growing in the company and the culture is shifting.

    Headquarters may be great at flexibility, but not as much at the smaller locations. They offer flexible arrangements but really encourage you not to use them.

    Maybe. Depending on the area that you work in there are either abundant areas for advancement or not at all.

This is a good place to work. I like recent efforts in place to increase women in operations and field positions. We have a new President who is a woman and she is very impressive.

This company is very conservative but realizes the importance of being more diverse and inclusive. The journey has started but will take some time. So if you join be patient and find ways to improve the culture.

    To become more competitive, UTC Aerospace Systems has introduced a flex program that allows employees to be more flexible with work time. They have also improved their parental leave by increasing from 6 to 12 weeks for mothers and allowing fathers to take 3 or 4 weeks. Things are changing but there is still some resistance by those who have been around for a while.

The benefits of working within UTC are never-ending. They are very flexible and offer many opportunities for continued training and education. It is easy to find women willing to mentor other women.

If your manager shares the culture vision and governs themselves accordingly then it is a great place to work, as Otis is.

If you want a "job" with work life balance you can find it here. If you actually want a "career" you may have a hard time moving ahead. This is still a very old-fashioned company.

    Flexibility depends on the job. For most jobs the flexibility is good.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    10 paid / 6 unpaid

    Policies have changed recently for the better since my experience. Amount of paid leave may depend on sick time which is based on years of service.

    Maybe. I am happy in my current job but a lot of the experience is dependent on who your direct supervisor is. The Women's Forum is very active in supporting initiatives for women but moving ahead can still be difficult. The company is saying the right things regarding women and diversity initiatives but not following through on them yet in all areas.

    There are good policies on flex times and flexible work arrangements. Some divisions allow for part time employment and transitions between part time and full time.

    Some good policies but unevenly deployed. The attitudes towards women vary. In some areas there is very early promotion of women into leadership positions they are not qualified or equipped for.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends on the position and business unit as to whether I would recommend. There are many good opportunities, but some to avoid.
