    Deployed Overseas

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ITT Systems

    Pros

    Relatively flexible, pay is good for working conditions, company pays for housing and food. Experience is mainly based on the location and the people you work with. Able to relocate easily if needed.

    Cons

    Jobs in overseas locations especially in combat zones are not determined until arriving in area; assignment is basically based on the needs of the company. You're only told what country you will be at, not necessarily the locale.

    Decent place to retire in

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

    Pros

    Company is stable with good working environment. Good work-life balance: you come in on time and leave on time. Professional office setting - with large open space (nice sized offices and cubicles). Good benefits and have room for personal growth.

    Cons

    Things move slow, managers don't want to "change" anything and "shake things up". New technology is rarely encouraged. Too much legacy systems and "old ways" of doing things still supported.

    Former Employee - Electronics Technician
    Former Employee - Electronics Technician

    I worked at ITT Systems as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    benefits were great with meals, lodging and transportation provided; generous paid vacation time per year; good salary, about in the middle of other companies providing similar service; was offered a follow on job stateside as Iraq was finishing

    Cons

    some employees were lacking proper knowledge to operate independently and relied heavily on the techs that know their duties; middle management was a real low spot here. many mgrs were not suited for the position; i believe their normal operations are much better

    I worked at ITT Systems full-time

    Pros

    Comradery of team members-the interaction with the many army units on Fort Bragg.

    Cons

    It was only contract work and about 250 of us were laid off when ITT did not win the new Bid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job the best you can and others will notice and Big things come to those who wait with patiences.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Colorado Springs, CO

    I worked at ITT Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Gained valuable experience working with different programs

    Cons

    Extremely unethical and amoral. Was asked to cheat on my time card to prevent overtime costs.Salary caps are based on what the current senior person in that career field is making, not the local average. Logistics department held "spouse swapping" parties. Two team members, without clearances, were allowed to continue working on the program, even after security violations. Good old boys club is alive an well! Left because my doctor feared for my health due to the increased job stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more concerned about the work environment and employee morale than making a name for yourself and covering your behinds. Daily four hour "progress" meetings do not improve team cohesiveness.
