Pros

The work environment is generally fair and friendly. Employees are treated humanely and are given the benifit of the doubt. There are plenty of opportunities for growth, however, you must ask for it and show your enthusiasm for it.

Cons

Parking has become a real problem. If you go out for lunch, don't expect to find a parking at ITT.

Advice to Management

Some Senior Managers tend to not care about how they talk to employees. They just want things done, without too much regard to issues arising. Sending other employees to boss a hard working employee around is the worst possible way to lose the one good employee...even in a tough economy.

So be respectful.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    High pay and competitive benefits. ITT generally pays well over the industry average for the geographical area. Negotiatiate well when you join and when you change jobs. Merit raises tend to be average to below average.

    Cons

    Lack of job security due to the relentless drive for quarterly profits. At the first hint of poor operational performance, the first step is to eliminate business class travel - a normal perk for executives and anyone traveling overseas. The next step is to curtail overall spending and specifically travel. You can then be assured a layoff is in the works. Totally predictable.

    Advice to Management

    Be creative in managing our business. Revenue growth trumps cost cutting every time. "Restructuring" charges are a poor investment. Employees that would otherwise be retiring are given lavish exit packages to leave in the current quarter at the expense of ITT and as a gift to the value center leadership. Many times, these are the most productive people. Resources required to capture new business are lost or must shift focus to retaining existing business. Instead, coach VC presidents to achieve increasing YOY market share and use other means to show unproductive people the door.
