Ok to start

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ITT Corp

ProsWas a good place for me to start working and gain experience. It has a very good life work balance and flexible hours. Found enough people there who were willing to put in the time to grow a young engineer.

ConsManagement here is terrible. Left because of politics and because I felt like I hit a ceiling in the company very quickly. I don't know if that has changed since I left.

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

Company with high potential for financial growth

Director (Former Employee)
Seneca Falls, NY

I worked at ITT Corp full-time for more than a year

ProsGood products, excellent strategic positioning. Great environment for learning as roles are broad.

ConsHigh backlog of investments, manual and inconsistent processes significantly increasing workload across all functions, inefficient financial planning & budgeting processes. Unmotivated staff due to frequent lay-offs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good people, adequate work experience. Pretty much your standard big corporate business, as far as I could tell.

Software Engineer/Infosec (Former Employee)

I worked at ITT Corp full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI worked at an office that had (at the time) recently been acquired by ITT. I did have a lot of opportunities to explore a variety of roles while I was there, largely through some experimental local programs that got shut down as the corporate entity continued extending control over the company. Good people; I cannot think of a single person I actually worked with there who I was not able to get along with and work productively with.

ConsProgressively more and more of those good people left as time passed after the acquisition. I would not be surprised if none of the people I worked with are still there.

When I was laid off, due to unavailability of compatible contracts, I was given zero notice. I did receive two weeks severance pay as compensation, but as anyone who has been in that position knows, it is much harder to find employment if you are not currently employed...as a result I spent several months unemployed until I was able to find another opportunity.

Not the ITT of 10 years ago...

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Clifton, NJ

I have been working at ITT Corp full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFriendly coworkers
Lots of lunch meetings

ConsBad Industry Outlook
Not Honest with Employees

Advice to Senior ManagementHonesty is Key. Don't say one thing and do another. For instance, don't send an email to the entire company saying that we're meetting our financial targets and everything is rosy, then close facilities and have 15% layoffs.

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

I like my coworkers and my managers, but I don't like that the company is top heavy with too many managers.

Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Santa Ana, CA

I have been working at ITT Corp full-time for more than 3 years

ProsEngineering managers are layed back and don't micro-manage.

ConsThe company keeps firing low level workers and keeps hiring more managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementHiring more managers doesn't solve the problem.

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

It's Who You Know..................

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Clifton, NJ

I worked at ITT Corp full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood paying job, great benefits.

ConsThey treat people unfair. The more you work the less recognition you receive. Everyone should be treated equally. it's not the same rules for all ,it boils down to who you know not how you work. It seems the less you perform the better your treated. This is the opinion of 90% of th e employess if you took a poll.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more symatheic to your employees treat them with the same respect you want.

Fair compensation, but company lack vision.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Wayne, IN

I have been working at ITT Corp

ProsFair compensation, good benefits, generally good people to work with.

ConsSenior management often lacks good leadership abilities and relies on buzz-word business skills. Quite often, tools and polocies such as VBSS are applied to projects that they are not intended for. Engineering takes a back seat to these initiatives and the product/ project schedule and budget suffers.
