    I worked at ITT Corp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a great place to learn many aspects of FP&A and General Accounting.

    Cons

    Each year saw a reduction in staff which placed more stress on the people who were left to carry the weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transferring production to another Country may appear on paper to reduce costs, but the quantity of returned products will erode earnings and drive customers elsewhere.

    Pros

    9/80 work week. Good life work balance with flexible hours.

    Top heavy with too much project management. There was a half dozen rounds of layoffs during my time there. All the survivors moved to LA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself and crony cohort.

    Pros

    Company has a great potential and great history. One of the staples of the industrial revolution in the US.

    Cons

    Executive management in White Plains is incompetent. CEO Denise Ramos coming from a CFO background does not have the operational experience to run a manufacturing company. Combined with her indecisive nature and her ambiguous management style she is the wrong person for the job. In addition ITT does not have up-to-date IT systems that allow efficient operational management of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise to the board, replace the executive team in White Plains.

    Pros

    Hugely successful, great products and some really excellent people.

    Cons

    Have no idea what it takes to get things done. Unrealistic expectations of staff. Poor corporate culture - have an entitlement mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real! Start listening to what your staff are telling you and the results being achieved will be even better.

    Pros

    Staff is friendly and systems were being upgraded to more modern technology. Worked a lot but enjoyed the work. Very family type environment, it is Hawaii.

    Cons

    Educational programs set up werenʻt established, a lot of people retiring without a group of people who were hired to people have the knowledge passed down. Seemed like everything was on a small budget. Even though government contracts gave up a lot of money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Had worked at a remote site so management referred to another person for my progress, when he should have talked directly to me than a coworker. From previous experience that same coworker had issues with family that worked there before and he only had negative things to say about me. Manager was inexperienced at his job, because he was just hired into it. Just got promoted after spending years of work in the similar job that I had been hired into.
