    Pros

    Co workers are very supportive

    Management needs to better communicate their overall objectives as they change frequently. Young women are often promoted for reasons other than utilizing their brains.

    Review personnel structure and define their duties as to any value added.

    I have been working at ITT Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive benefits. "Team-like" environment. Lot of "Go Team, Hooray for us" type management philosophies. Modern manufacturing philosophies.

    Cons

    Overplayed the anti-glass ceiling management style. Quickly promoted women, minorities, to high(er) management positions. Frequently overlooked long term experience and talent, in favor of new people that look good on "paper". More than happy to go outside company to get cheaper labor.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being "political" and artificially promote and hire quality, talent, regardless of color.

    I worked at ITT Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company has a great potential and great history. One of the staples of the industrial revolution in the US.

    Cons

    Executive management in White Plains is incompetent. CEO Denise Ramos coming from a CFO background does not have the operational experience to run a manufacturing company. Combined with her indecisive nature and her ambiguous management style she is the wrong person for the job. In addition ITT does not have up-to-date IT systems that allow efficient operational management of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Advise to the board, replace the executive team in White Plains.

    I worked at ITT Corp as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were absolutely no Pros!

    Cons

    As an employee for ITT Corp, all you are is Contracted Body to what every Federal Government Agency that ITT Corp has a Support Contract. If anything happens with the Fed Client, you (the ITT Contractor) are blamed for it, ITT Corp will not support you and your employment with ITT will be terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Get a backbone and support your employees!

    Pros

    Rochester is a convenient, reasonably priced place to live. The work is technically challenging and about as high tech as it gets. The people are top-notch.

    Cons

    Upper management completely out of touch with the customer base and the "business" they are in. They are completely incompetent and out for their next performance appraisal and promotion. There is no future vision other than the next quarter. Fear of layoffs is pervasive and the place has a death-watch feel to it. There is absolutely no loyalty to the employees while they continually espouse wanting to grow employee loyalty to the company - it's a one way street. There is no concern for or money spent on employee development, professional association involvement, IR&D, facilities upgrades and pay raises are miserly - the list is endless. Benefits continue to erode year after year. In 1-3 years it will dry up and blow away.

    Advice to Management

    Get out! The people brought in from Ft Wayne do not know the business or the customer. They have absolutely no confidence from the larger technical community and the customer base in general. The business relationships are bad and deteriorating.

    Pros

    Work is challenging, and very interesting. The potential growth is very huge with a possible market of 500,000 GPS Receivers.

    Cons

    The pay is too low and most employees are incompetent in GPS design. The senior management is not technically competent and ignore suggestions for improvement.

      The best advice is don't work there.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management must listen to the employees and take action.
