    Pros

    Great 401k plan that's Itt will match. Health benefits are average.

    Cons

    Base pay is a little below average. Treated as a number and years worked there means nothing to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who know how to manage people correctly. Don't think food and treats will make people happy. They want more money, not donuts and pens.

    I have been working at ITT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff is friendly and systems were being upgraded to more modern technology. Worked a lot but enjoyed the work. Very family type environment, it is Hawaii.

    Cons

    Educational programs set up werenʻt established, a lot of people retiring without a group of people who were hired to people have the knowledge passed down. Seemed like everything was on a small budget. Even though government contracts gave up a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Had worked at a remote site so management referred to another person for my progress, when he should have talked directly to me than a coworker. From previous experience that same coworker had issues with family that worked there before and he only had negative things to say about me. Manager was inexperienced at his job, because he was just hired into it. Just got promoted after spending years of work in the similar job that I had been hired into.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers
    Lots of lunch meetings

    Cons

    Bad Industry Outlook
    Not Honest with Employees

    Advice to Management

    Honesty is Key. Don't say one thing and do another. For instance, don't send an email to the entire company saying that we're meetting our financial targets and everything is rosy, then close facilities and have 15% layoffs.

    Engineering managers are layed back and don't micro-manage.

    The company keeps firing low level workers and keeps hiring more managers.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring more managers doesn't solve the problem.
