    I have been working at ITW Building Components Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people here are very friendly and understanding. The benefits are top notch, with a generous 401k match, excellent health care and dental, overtime, and vacation. This year and next look very good for the company; recent restructuring has improved software development immensely.

    Cons

    Advancement is limited and raises have been spotty (due mostly to the economy).

    I have been working at ITW Building Components Group

    Pros

    The culture at our office was really good most of the time. The benefits were great and the salaries were ok. I really did enjoy the people I worked with and made life long friends while there.

    Cons

    The leadership of this company is clueless, directionless, idea-less, and ultimately evil. For many years the company took on several different ideas and directions, never sticking with one of them longer than 6 months. ITW knows how to manufacture products and get them to customers. Unfortunately for the building components world, they do not know how to deal with engineers or how to design and upgrade computer software. Customers were left just as frustrated and confused as employees, ultimately leaving for competitors in droves. ITWBCG is also very efficient at conducting lay offs and cut backs when things don't go there way, which is often. I am surprised they haven't closed this business as I do not see it competing with better run organizations. Customers know this and will be hard pressed to ever comeback or buy from ITWBCG.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the top levels of management and actually hire building component executives that know the industry. Listen to customers and understand that if you can't make them your number one priority you have no business being in business. This all may be too late however, so perhaps it would be best to sell or close the company.

    I worked at ITW Building Components Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benifits were some of the best I had or heard about. Awesome health plan, 401K, Tuition reimbursement, dental, vision, paid vacation, the industry is heading into a new era with Building Information Modelling using 3d software to see the finished building before it's finished, great severence package, tried to create a very soft landing for the unfortunate lay offs

    Cons

    The downturn in the building industry has led to a lot of turnover at the top, leading to product and software goals never being fully reached before a change in direction. The downturn also led to many cuts leaving some customers without the support they once had. No room for advancement at the office I worked at. I also had trouble with their COBRA provider, ITW looked into it but eventually never resolved the issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to serving the customer instead of worrying about competitors, follow through on goals instead of changing direction constantly
