    Nice people with good benefits but pay lower than market average - lots of turnover for various reasons.

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

    Pros

    Good place to start a career; nice benefits, ok pay is livable but lower than market average (see cons below); mostly friendly people (with exceptions of course) and and good work environment; depending on which department in which you work there's not much required overtime, although it is available when necessary to complete projects when they are behind.

    Cons

    Very little in the way of pay raises (they were eliminated the last year I was there). Poor upper management at the corporate level; they "do their own thing" without regard to how if affects the employees underneath them. Pay is somewhat lower than market average for any given position; lots of "forced retirement" of long-time employees and managers. Limited upward mobility due to "corporate restructuring" and other factors. I was "downsized" after coming back from a week of vacation, the same week I hit my 5th anniversary of employment with ITT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the people under you, stop ignoring them and treating them like pawns... some of them are actually smarter and wiser than you are in certain areas. The corporate philosophy is "do the right thing always" yet in 5 years I repeatedly saw management fail to do what's right for the employees. Denise Ramos needs to GO because she's been there too long, time for some younger blood - get somebody with a firm grip on reality and a clue of how it really goes at the bottom of the food chain!!

    I worked at ITT Corp

    Pros

    Challenging opportunities and top notch training on Lean and Six Sigma tools and applications

    Cons

    Uneven implementation of process tools and a micromanagement environment, along with poor corporate integration, prevent employees from accessing career opportunities across the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make full use of your corporate presence to allow your employees to find their career path and support that development.

    I worked at ITT Corp as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly, extremely helpful, everyone around you wants to help you move on in your professional life with a lot of different technical fields. ITT was willing to do anything to help me learn about the field I wanted to have a career in.

    Cons

    Not many challenges that I can think of from being there. At times the work was a little dry but it was for the most part always fun to be a part of something new.

    I worked at ITT Corp

    Pros

    Was a good place for me to start working and gain experience. It has a very good life work balance and flexible hours. Found enough people there who were willing to put in the time to grow a young engineer.

    Cons

    Management here is terrible. Left because of politics and because I felt like I hit a ceiling in the company very quickly. I don't know if that has changed since I left.

    Pros

    There were absolutely no Pros!

    As an employee for ITT Corp, all you are is Contracted Body to what every Federal Government Agency that ITT Corp has a Support Contract. If anything happens with the Fed Client, you (the ITT Contractor) are blamed for it, ITT Corp will not support you and your employment with ITT will be terminated.
