Pros

Tremendous amount of exposure to engineering, production, business strategy and innovation strategy.

Cons

Pay is not so great. ITW's highly decentralized philosophy sometimes makes you feel like you are working at a mom and pop shop. Not enough R&D experts within the company. Not an innovative company.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to your talent acquisition.

    Pros

    Large, financially strong company. Great people in the business units. Delivers consistent results. Good place to start a career for someone fresh out of school.

    Cons

    Loss of entrepreneurial culture. As another reviewer mentioned, ITW used to value it's people. People who worked for ITW did so because they could see tremendous opportunity for advancement among 800 business units. Numerous people worked their way up the ladder over the past 100 years. Now, the ladder only has rungs at the top. Now the company is headed toward being just like every other conglomerate.
