    I have been working at Illinois Tool Works full-time (More than 5 years)


    A lot of responsibility given to people early in their careers. Ability to get experience in a variety of different field and roles from the same position


    Always behind the industry standard on compensation. Not willing to compete for talent by increasing compensation despite saying that competing for talent is a priority

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    Average interview process, friendly recruiter, overall a positive experience. It is mostly behavioral interview to check if you would be a good fit in the team. Few technical questions: how do you design a new product, list the innovation process.
