    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.

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

    Pros

    Hard workers get recognized and have a lot of room for growth. The company has many needs and areas of improvement that require the attention of knowledgeable and passionate employees.

    Cons

    There are so many areas requiring improvements that you can easily become buried in the day to day activities. A 50 hour work week typically allows you to get to about 90% of the day to day and 10% of the growth improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the concerns and suggestions of the employees. Decisions should be made after vetting out all concerns and listening to multiple perspectives.

    Provide a more stable environment where employees can better use their talents.
