    I have been working at ITW Global Brands full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Learning the interesting 80/20 business model and how to apply it to your book of business to grow sales.

    Cons

    Sometimes "sales" is on the back burner dealing with constant price increases which are often magnified since the company carries so many brands.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at ITW Global Brands

    Pros

    Freedom to learn many new things in the Retail Automotive After Market. Hours are flexible. Management does not micro manage.

    Cons

    Pillars of management do not play well together in the corporate sandbox. Lack of true focus and leadership versus what is communicated in the monthly Town Hall meetings. No true innovation of company products. Not technologically advanced with computer systems. If you like to perform all your work manually, then this is the place for you.

    I worked at ITW Global Brands full-time

    Pros

    You gain experience in a multi- company environment with strong brands and as a market leader. Always willing to invest in people and opportunity as long as the return is worthwhile. Some very talented people help to bring home the wins and over-come the in fighting among the groups.

    Cons

    No real leadership at the top because of the unique way in which the different brands are focused. Very little room for people to grow or for the talent to stand out. So much energy is spent on not failing creating finger pointing enviroment causing risk takers feel discouraged. Multiple silo's that are well intrenched make it very hard for different departments to work together. Process and procedure is everything.

    Pros

    Good work environment with a decent training process. Stable growing company.

    Cons

    Company is slow to give raises, or promote from within if they want to keep you in a specific department for their benefit. They will keep you as a work horse and not compensate. They pile on additional clients/customers if you are great at your job but do not give raises when they say they will.
