    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.

    Pros

    The job isn't difficult to obtain, provided you have the appropriate background and experience. Work also isn't difficult if you have a strong foundation in IT work. You have the option of receiving a Health & Welfare (H&W) fringe payment when waiving medical/dental, which is around $2-3/hr depending on the area.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to other companies working in the same field. No matching 401k. Cost of group health insurance is more expensive than private insurance. Tuition assistance is also low. Furthermore, there is no room for promotions and no regular raises regardless of performance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people for their dedication and effort otherwise they'll leave for a new company with better pay and benefits.
