No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Illinois Tool Works full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

ITW offers many opportunities for top performers to rise to the top with current restructuring activities creating many more opportunities for young professionals to distinguish themselves. Strong corporate management is leading a transformational change in corporate culture.

Cons

While corporate management is strong, Vice Presidents and General Managers (operational leaders) are generally uninspiring and struggling to implement ITW's Enterprise Strategy

Advice to Management

Actively involve all employees and be patient with employee's discomfort with ongoing business restructuring activities.
