This place is FULL of old, white men, but they are willing to change. If you are a woman passionate about generator engineer, you can really kick ass here. If not, you can easily get stuck working in a job you don't love for decades.

    Maybe. I think this company treats men and women equally, but I am an intern so I don't know that much. Also, this place isn't a great place to work because of the top-down management.

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.

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.

    Flexibility varies a lot by job function. Operations doesn't allow for as much flexibility as engineering or finance for example because of the nature of the position.

    The company offers paid leave and allows new parents to be on leave for up to 16 weeks (not all of which is covered under 'parental leave pay policy')

Senior Engineer - Chemical/Materials Engineering

Engineering

January 1970

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.

    Flexibility is very much position dependent and really more about the direct supervision's flexibility. Policies exist but it's at the discretion of your direct supervision.

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!!
