Great! Very high degree of autonomy. Constant Flow of information (profitability, budget) all along the food chain

I have been working at ITT Corp

Pros

Very flat organization, very little meddling of management on day to day jobs. It was real pleasure to work there. Not at all a political place to work.

Cons

Practically no R&D. All efforts are towards one direction-military, defense products - high profitability

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend and Spread development dollars on various segment of the market-defense/aerrospace, commercial programs and non defese projects evenly.

Recommends

    Miserable Place to Work

    I worked at ITT Corp

    Pros

    Rochester 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.

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.
