    Pros

    Stress free environment and friendly.
    No risk of getting fired unless you are that dispassionate about your job.

    Cons

    Not among one of the top paying companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to pay the hardworking employees a bit more and you will be one of the most loved employers.

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

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

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Progressively 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.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers
    Lots of lunch meetings

    Cons

    Bad Industry Outlook
    Not Honest with Employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty 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.

    I like my coworkers and my managers, but I don't like that the company is top heavy with too many managers.

    Hiring more managers doesn't solve the problem.

    I worked at ITT Corp full-time

    Pros

    the work is incredibly interesting
    company is staffed by experts in their fields
    the pay is quite competitive
    Rochester is a great family town

    Cons

    even for a defense contractor, the bureaucracy is stifling; internal processes are as archaic as most of its buildings; and company leadership and internal business systems are set up only to identify new revenue, with almost no thought to promoting internal innovation, increased efficiency, employee satisfaction, or entrepreneurialism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    refocus some of your attention on how your team delivers, how they promote, and how you can support them to allow them to do their jobs better
