    I have been working at ITT Goulds Pumps full-time

    Pros

    As I write this we are about 2 years into a pretty horrible downturn in the oil & gas market. Compared to their peers Goulds has weathered it better than most. That says a lot for the resilience of the people here and why I enjoy working here. The vast majority of people around you do care and it shows in their daily interactions.

    Cons

    ITT corporate periodically descend from White Plains to fiddle with things. In my experience (with the notable exception of culture training), this has seldom worked out well.

    It is as almost as if they talk a different bizarre language, which in itself would not matter except that often that hides a singular lack of skill in running a going concern. For example some recent hiring decisions they had involvement in (such as the short lived and highly disruptive ES VP), severely distracted everyone from the important task of running a business in a downturn.

    Advice to Management

    Find things to keep ITT White Plains corporate distracted with something shiny/unimportant, and as far away as possible from the nuts and bolts of running a company.

    Pros

    Great union pay and benefits. Really quiet on the night shift allows to get things done. Most people always willing to help.

    Cons

    To much management. White Plains needs to turn Goulds into a multifaceted shop. Too much potential to be praying on just oil industry.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in R&D. Always look ahead

    I have been working at ITT Goulds Pumps full-time

    Pros

    Great products across all facilities.

    Cons

    It seems that systems and people are about 50 years behind. Engineering staff still manually search for drawings/ documents and people are unwilling to share anything. There is no centralized location for engineering files, and each person stores his or her own in their cubical.
    No one works as a team, and managers vocally bad mouth other managers. Very dysfunctional company.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and stop turning a blind eye to what is happening. Stop pretending that everything is ok and it is not.
