    Pros

    Good benefits, some great co-workers, not too strict. I like working here.

    Cons

    Hard work is not rewarded and most supervisors are impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Fire a certain supervisor who has been complained about by many employees. Compensate employees who do good work more than those who do not.

    I have been working at ITW full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people who work there.

    Cons

    This company has no leadership, I mean none in the upper management. This is the worst company I have ever worked for that has no leadership. For the ones that do, the upper management has them locked out of everything. If you don't have more than 10 years with this company better watch your back. I suggest caution if any one applies for this company.

    Advice to Management

    You have people in the wrong places. You need to revaluate the so called staff. staff
