Good people, adequate work experience. Pretty much your standard big corporate business, as far as I could tell.

Software Engineer/Infosec (Former Employee)

I worked at ITT Corp full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI worked at an office that had (at the time) recently been acquired by ITT. I did have a lot of opportunities to explore a variety of roles while I was there, largely through some experimental local programs that got shut down as the corporate entity continued extending control over the company. Good people; I cannot think of a single person I actually worked with there who I was not able to get along with and work productively with.

ConsProgressively more and more of those good people left as time passed after the acquisition. I would not be surprised if none of the people I worked with are still there.

When I was laid off, due to unavailability of compatible contracts, I was given zero notice. I did receive two weeks severance pay as compensation, but as anyone who has been in that position knows, it is much harder to find employment if you are not currently employed...as a result I spent several months unemployed until I was able to find another opportunity.

Not the ITT of 10 years ago...

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Clifton, NJ

I have been working at ITT Corp full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFriendly coworkers
Lots of lunch meetings

ConsBad Industry Outlook
Not Honest with Employees

Advice to Senior ManagementHonesty is Key. Don't say one thing and do another. For instance, don't send an email to the entire company saying that we're meetting our financial targets and everything is rosy, then close facilities and have 15% layoffs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's Who You Know..................

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Clifton, NJ

I worked at ITT Corp full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood paying job, great benefits.

ConsThey treat people unfair. The more you work the less recognition you receive. Everyone should be treated equally. it's not the same rules for all ,it boils down to who you know not how you work. It seems the less you perform the better your treated. This is the opinion of 90% of th e employess if you took a poll.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more symatheic to your employees treat them with the same respect you want.
