    I worked at ITT Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can start at the Help desk and move around to more technical areas. Easy to advance if you are willing to put in the time and effort. One of the best team of people that I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Was not the most well paying company and senior management was just recycled friends of other senior management. Most of the Area managers in Afghanistan didn't have a clue.

    Advice to Management

    Put more efforts into your employees instead of your stock holders and everything will be great.

  3. "Deployed Overseas"

    Pros

    Relatively flexible, pay is good for working conditions, company pays for housing and food. Experience is mainly based on the location and the people you work with. Able to relocate easily if needed.

    Cons

    Jobs in overseas locations especially in combat zones are not determined until arriving in area; assignment is basically based on the needs of the company. You're only told what country you will be at, not necessarily the locale.

    I worked at ITT Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is stable with good working environment. Good work-life balance: you come in on time and leave on time. Professional office setting - with large open space (nice sized offices and cubicles). Good benefits and have room for personal growth.

    Cons

    Things move slow, managers don't want to "change" anything and "shake things up". New technology is rarely encouraged. Too much legacy systems and "old ways" of doing things still supported.

    Pros

    Over 40 years in technical missile ground systems support, excellent processes.

    Cons

    Politics & personalities at times, but that's everywhere, isn't it?

    Advice to Management

    Listen to ground level & intermediate management advice (psst -- they already know the problem AND the answers!)

    I worked at ITT Systems full-time

    Pros

    Comradery of team members-the interaction with the many army units on Fort Bragg.

    It was only contract work and about 250 of us were laid off when ITT did not win the new Bid.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job the best you can and others will notice and Big things come to those who wait with patiences.
