    Pros

    Hard workers get recognized and have a lot of room for growth. The company has many needs and areas of improvement that require the attention of knowledgeable and passionate employees.

    Cons

    There are so many areas requiring improvements that you can easily become buried in the day to day activities. A 50 hour work week typically allows you to get to about 90% of the day to day and 10% of the growth improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the concerns and suggestions of the employees. Decisions should be made after vetting out all concerns and listening to multiple perspectives.

    Pros

    Good products and website. Try to be progressive however with little regard to individual accomplishments.

    Cons

    Corporate is dysfunctional. You work hard and then they reorganize. Ask a former employee.

    Pros

    It was a great place to learn many aspects of FP&A and General Accounting.

    Cons

    Each year saw a reduction in staff which placed more stress on the people who were left to carry the weight.

    Advice to Management

    Transferring production to another Country may appear on paper to reduce costs, but the quantity of returned products will erode earnings and drive customers elsewhere.

    Pros

    9/80 work week. Good life work balance with flexible hours.

    Cons

    Top 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 Management

    Fire yourself and crony cohort.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Money 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?

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Very 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 Management

    Start 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!!

    Pros

    Challenging opportunities and top notch training on Lean and Six Sigma tools and applications

    Cons

    Uneven implementation of process tools and a micromanagement environment, along with poor corporate integration, prevent employees from accessing career opportunities across the organization

    Advice to Management

    Make full use of your corporate presence to allow your employees to find their career path and support that development.
