    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.

    Nice facility, good people mostl

    Cons

    Managment culture was bottom line only. No consideration for work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Money isnt everything. Consider that the workforce have families. If you wont let us off to take care of our families, whats the point of life?

    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 Management

    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!!

    Pros

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

    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 Management

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

    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.
