Louis Chenevert: Working at United Technologies Corporation

There are certain moments in everyone’s life when they were at their happiest. For some people, their happiest times were at the office. That may sound weird considering how much most people hate going to work, but people who love what they do don’t consider the office a workplace; it’s a second home.

For people like Louis Chenevert, working is something that’s hard for them to give up. After 40 years of working, he’s gotten really close to retiring age, but he’s having trouble giving it all up. He’s not stuck on making a bunch of money or anything like that.

It’s just that he loves working, and the time he spent working at United Technologies Corporation was the happiest years of his life. According to all the positive things people say about him, it appears his years at United Technologies Corporation were also the happiest times of a lot of people’s lives.

It may sound like he worked there forever, but he didn’t join United Technologies Corporation until 2006. Before that, he worked at Pratt & Whitney for 13 years; before that, he worked at General Motors for 14 years. When he started working for United Technologies Corporation, he knew he’d found something special.

Unlike all those other companies, United Technologies Corporation was a place where everyone stayed focused. Running such a global company offered him the chance to learn from and teach people from all over the world. United Technologies Corporation is still one of the most successful global companies in the world.

The objective of everything that United Technologies Corporation did was to develop game-changing technology as quickly as they could. Every small team had brilliant engineers and was led by one main operational leadership team.

By bringing all these people together and leading them by example, United Technologies Corporation began exceeding their customers’ expectations every time. It’s a wonder why Chenevert retired from United Technologies Corporation, leaving the company in 2014 to work at Goldman Sachs.
