    AOA is dead

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Thousand Oaks, CA

    Pros9/80 work week. Good life work balance with flexible hours.

    ConsTop heavy with too much project management. There was a half dozen rounds of layoffs during my time there. All the survivors moved to LA.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourself and crony cohort.

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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice facility, good people mostl

    ConsManagment culture was bottom line only. No consideration for work life balance

    Advice to Senior ManagementMoney isnt everything. Consider that the workforce have families. If you wont let us off to take care of our families, whats the point of life?

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nice people with good benefits but pay lower than market average - lots of turnover for various reasons.

    Accountant (Former Employee) Fort Wayne, IN

    ProsGood place to start a career; nice benefits, ok pay is livable but lower than market average (see cons below); mostly friendly people (with exceptions of course) and and good work environment; depending on which department in which you work there's not much required overtime, although it is available when necessary to complete projects when they are behind.

    ConsVery little in the way of pay raises (they were eliminated the last year I was there). Poor upper management at the corporate level; they "do their own thing" without regard to how if affects the employees underneath them. Pay is somewhat lower than market average for any given position; lots of "forced retirement" of long-time employees and managers. Limited upward mobility due to "corporate restructuring" and other factors. I was "downsized" after coming back from a week of vacation, the same week I hit my 5th anniversary of employment with ITT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart listening to the people under you, stop ignoring them and treating them like pawns... some of them are actually smarter and wiser than you are in certain areas. The corporate philosophy is "do the right thing always" yet in 5 years I repeatedly saw management fail to do what's right for the employees. Denise Ramos needs to GO because she's been there too long, time for some younger blood - get somebody with a firm grip on reality and a clue of how it really goes at the bottom of the food chain!!

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