I worked at ITT Corp full-time

Pros

the work is incredibly interesting
company is staffed by experts in their fields
the pay is quite competitive
Rochester is a great family town

Cons

even for a defense contractor, the bureaucracy is stifling; internal processes are as archaic as most of its buildings; and company leadership and internal business systems are set up only to identify new revenue, with almost no thought to promoting internal innovation, increased efficiency, employee satisfaction, or entrepreneurialism

Advice to ManagementAdvice

refocus some of your attention on how your team delivers, how they promote, and how you can support them to allow them to do their jobs better

    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.

    Miserable Place to Work

    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.
