I worked at ITT Systems full-time (More than 5 years)
Can start at the Help desk and move around to more technical areas. Easy to advance if you are willing to put in the time and effort. One of the best team of people that I have ever worked with.
Was not the most well paying company and senior management was just recycled friends of other senior management. Most of the Area managers in Afghanistan didn't have a clue.
Advice to Management
Put more efforts into your employees instead of your stock holders and everything will be great.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ITT Systems.
The hiring process is pretty quick once they verify your certifications and experience. Company was always available for questions and provide sponsors to walk you through the process. Once you speak with the recruiter about your qualifications, during the phone call the recruiter will ask basic questions regarding to Cisco. If you pass this basic test then they will schedule another interview with the people "in-country" for another test and decide on your character. The process is very fast so you need to check email frequently.
There was no negotiation phase. Either you take the job or they move on to another candidate.
