Current Employee - Senior Sales Representative in Vernon Hills, IL
Current Employee - Senior Sales Representative in Vernon Hills, IL

I have been working at Illinois Tool Works full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great Benefits except for no stock options. Great sales force and customer service reps.

Cons

Corporate Paslode upper management has no respect for sales force. They are very disconnected from customers and market. Completely priced out of the market, but yet still ask why we are losing market share. Really?? When prices are double the competition to the end user it makes it very difficult and very frustrating!!! Upper Management very degrading and unmotivating toward sales force

    Pros

    There is a great deal of opportunities for growth in this company. I am always getting challenged to try new things and take on new challenges. Insurance is great.

    Cons

    compensation and time off are low. HR refuses to negotiate vacation time when you hire in so no one gets increased vacation time even if you are a experienced professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considered increasing salaries and vacation time off.

    Former Employee - BU Manager in Glenview, IL

    I worked at Illinois Tool Works full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good financial business practice.
    Good business philosophies.
    Healthy focus on profitability.

    Cons

    Slow and difficult decision making process.
    The company runs very lean, and most people are expected to do two people's jobs.
    Weak culture.
    Not a motivating place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing a real culture rather than individual cultures in each BU.
    Focus on motivating people rather than constantly cutting costs.
