I worked at ITT Corp full-time

Pros

the work is incredibly interesting
company is staffed by experts in their fields
the pay is quite competitive
Rochester is a great family town

Cons

even for a defense contractor, the bureaucracy is stifling; internal processes are as archaic as most of its buildings; and company leadership and internal business systems are set up only to identify new revenue, with almost no thought to promoting internal innovation, increased efficiency, employee satisfaction, or entrepreneurialism

Advice to Management

refocus some of your attention on how your team delivers, how they promote, and how you can support them to allow them to do their jobs better

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at ITT Corp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good paying job, great benefits.

    Cons

    They treat people unfair. The more you work the less recognition you receive. Everyone should be treated equally. it's not the same rules for all ,it boils down to who you know not how you work. It seems the less you perform the better your treated. This is the opinion of 90% of th e employess if you took a poll.

    Advice to Management

    Be more symatheic to your employees treat them with the same respect you want.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very flat organization, very little meddling of management on day to day jobs. It was real pleasure to work there. Not at all a political place to work.

    Cons

    Practically no R&D. All efforts are towards one direction-military, defense products - high profitability

    Advice to Management

    Spend and Spread development dollars on various segment of the market-defense/aerrospace, commercial programs and non defese projects evenly.
