    I worked at ITC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    The benefits and great, contributing 6% 401K, ESPP 15% discount, retirement plan after 3 years 100% employer contrib., work 10 years and get healthcare for life, stock options gifts annually and sometimes multiple annual, 4 weeks vacation, 11 paid holidays, unlimited sick days, short & long term disability,

    Cons

    Organization has a small company mentality and unwilling to change business processes to accommodate the big business they have become. Executives have a very punitive management style, Always looking for someone to blame rather than address the systemic issues and internal politics. Organizational structure very immature and contributes to the lack of cohesive decision making. Key Executives have left in the past 18 months and company is scrambling to fill those slots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    rethink you management strategy. value people on all departments, not just core business. Take on a nurturing and collaborative approach to management. Get rid of those that refuse to do so.

    I have been working at ITC Holdings

    Pros

    Stable place to work. You can keep doing the same thing over and over. Never have to stretch yourself or grow.

    Cons

    No opportunities. Promotions and advancements are extremely difficult. Not allowed to do anything that you were not originally hired to do. Very secretive about strategy and goals. Need to know only - and if you are not a VP, you have no need to know. Do not expect promotion, come into the company at the level you want to be at in 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees below the VP level may know more than you do - especially if you would share the vision and strategy of the company.

    I worked at ITC Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It is a job and the company is guaranteed to make a profit so it will never go out of business.

    Cons

    Many employees are just hired to make more profit for the company. With their Attachment O contract they can put anyone in a job and get $1.25 for every dollar they cost and electric customers and our government pay for this. They would rather hire two people who don't know what they are doing rather than one who does. In fact, they don't want anyone who is wise enough to catch on to what they are doing at the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lining your pockets with unearned money from the electric customers and the Federal Government. Do the right thing.

    Pros

    Benefits, Vacation time, stock grants

    Cons

    the new CIO needs to learn how to trust his employee's and contract staff that have made IT a great group to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and smell the crap in the CIO office and his manager.
