I have been working at ITT Corp

Pros

Stability and ability to work on cutting edge technology. Work on the latest technology out there and instead of maintaining/improving existing products work in completely new fields.

Cons

Much of the work is government focused so things move a little slowly. Could get boring at times when dealing with projects that are slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The culture of the company sometime is too bureaucratic and needs to change to adapt to the fast moving business climate.

    I have been working at ITT Corp full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to develop in a company that had opportunities to grow. Good management within the company to allow growth and present opportunities.

    Cons

    Too much divesting of products and in turn people within those areas. Not allowed opportunity to develop into areas that would allow someone to stay with the company if desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunity to train in areas outside of expertise. benefits were good but not superior to competitors.

    I have been working at ITT Corp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great people for the most part
    -Great large company name to show off on your CV

    Cons

    -Negative work environment which fosters a "Mc-ployees" robot work culture adapted to churning paperwork.
    -Within 1 week, any new employee can see the corporation clearly values command, control and compliance over innovation, sales, employee retention, or any kind of basic professional decency.
    -Uncompetitive compensation and benefits
    -Expect a 2% raise for a great employee, which is 1 below inflation.
    -Excessive bureaucracy.
    -Innovation is actively discouraged by the corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Adapt to the local work environment and radically shift to a culture of devolution and local level empowerment if you expect any kind of success.
    -Sell off business units where they possess zero expertise or knowledge
    -Have someone other than an accountant at a VP level critically evaluate if business synergies exist in businesses at all across business lines.
