Pros

If you get a chance to work for ITT, do it. They're fair for the most part and they tend to recruit some pretty good tallent. Kuwait on the other hand sucks. The hours are really rough and working on some of the bases is really tough. Contractors are not well respected by military counterparts, so that can be tough to deal with. Absolutely work for this company if you get a chance though. Just do it somewhere else.

Cons

They tend to promote the smartest geek into the positions of managment that they're just not comfortable with or good at. You will always know that the most technical person is leading the charge, but they often lack the soft management skills found in other disciplines. That's such a small gripe though.

Advice to Management

You guys are a really pro contracting team and I definitely would work for you again. Work on promoting actual managers with that skillset and you'll have a killer combination.
