Pros

ITT is a forward thinking company while ensuring current customer needs are met. All members of the business area team and support team work hard to prepare the best possible solutions to customer needs.

Cons

There is a lack of synergy or even basic communication between business areas. Significant potential exists to coordinate across business areas to meet multiple needs for a single customer. Some business areas have done better than others at this, but it needs to be driven from the top down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use the split up as an opporutunity to cross business areas within the new companies to provide comprehensive solutions to developing markets.

    Pros

    There are pockets of extremely intelligent people and pockets of very good people (some are even both). The professional experience that could be gained here is truly rare.

    Cons

    Middle management is inefficient, ineffective, and incompetent. The company is spirally down the drain and there have been many layoffs as of late. Company morale is at an all time low. Bad leadership has put many contracts in jeopardy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reign in middle management. There should be more accountability for their mistakes. There also needs to be less middle management or more checks on them.
