    I have been working at ITT 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.

    Stop hiring any warm body to fill a postion. Stop being a good ole boys club, and promote worthy people

    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.
