The Worse Employment Experience of My Career!!!

Senior Projects Manager (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at ITT Corp as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThere were absolutely no Pros!

ConsAs an employee for ITT Corp, all you are is Contracted Body to what every Federal Government Agency that ITT Corp has a Support Contract. If anything happens with the Fed Client, you (the ITT Contractor) are blamed for it, ITT Corp will not support you and your employment with ITT will be terminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a backbone and support your employees!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad Management and employees were not treated well. Complaints to HR were never taken seriously.

Miserable Place to Work

Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

I worked at ITT Corp

ProsRochester is a convenient, reasonably priced place to live. The work is technically challenging and about as high tech as it gets. The people are top-notch.

ConsUpper management completely out of touch with the customer base and the "business" they are in. They are completely incompetent and out for their next performance appraisal and promotion. There is no future vision other than the next quarter. Fear of layoffs is pervasive and the place has a death-watch feel to it. There is absolutely no loyalty to the employees while they continually espouse wanting to grow employee loyalty to the company - it's a one way street. There is no concern for or money spent on employee development, professional association involvement, IR&D, facilities upgrades and pay raises are miserly - the list is endless. Benefits continue to erode year after year. In 1-3 years it will dry up and blow away.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out! The people brought in from Ft Wayne do not know the business or the customer. They have absolutely no confidence from the larger technical community and the customer base in general. The business relationships are bad and deteriorating.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Don't work at ITT.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Thousand Oaks, CA

I have been working at ITT Corp

ProsWork is challenging, and very interesting. The potential growth is very huge with a possible market of 500,000 GPS Receivers.

ConsThe pay is too low and most employees are incompetent in GPS design. The senior management is not technically competent and ignore suggestions for improvement.

  The best advice is don't work there.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management must listen to the employees and take action.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Would not recommend working at ITT

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ITT Corp

ProsSome of the people are talented and good to work with.
If you can get on one of the few IR&D projects, the work is interesting.

ConsThe company does not spend enough on IR&D.
Doesn't seem to have a long term vision.
The defense industry is contracting.
Product line is too narrow. When a contract ends, a layoff begins.
Management doesn't follow the published values that the workers are required to follow.
I heard on a PBS show that great places to work allow employees to voice their opinion. ITT punishes employees who voice their opinion.
Want senior engineers to work unpaid overtime. They even have a document that states this.
Too many middle managers who only seem to attend meetings.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more on IR&D. Your competition does.
The next layoff should be at least 1/2 of the middle managers.
Follow the published values.
Expand the product line.
Be more loyal to your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
