Pros

Willing to sponsor you for US Government Security clearance. Plenty of opportunity for advancement.

Cons

More about the bottom line than the people. Pay is typically lower than other contracting firms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to your people and treat them like you actually care about them. Recognize talent within your organization and seek to promote those people. Get away from promotions based upon who you know.

    I have been working at ITT Systems as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    ITT knows their business well and continually wins new contracts. They pay on time and encourage continuous education, certifications, and reimburse for both. I hear other companies pay more but people who leave all too often tend to come back.

    Cons

    ITT has issues like any other company, practicing what they preach. It's contract work, and you're expendable, but when you're with them, you can do very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your people. Practice what you preach. Pay more attention to what's going on. Stop turning a blind eye to dead wood and rewarding poor or lax performance. Use corrective action more often. Those of us who work especially hard and have a very high work ethic resent deadbeats who get promoted or even allowed to keep their jobs. We pick up their slack.

    Pros

    It will be a wonderful experience to work with the task force in the middle east. Especially in MWR, its awesome.

    Cons

    Everything is "SAFETY"!!!! Each and every day, at least 15 times you will hear the word Safety. Is it a downside? Hmm, sometimes it will drive you crazy.
