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

    Pros

    Corporate strategy is clear. The guardrails are set / clear as well. The how you do it is up to each business units discretion. Divisional leadership gets to run the business and push ownership and accountability down to all levels. 85 business units means lots of room for advancement / learning opportunities. Not hierarchical, no ivory tower, no politics...really lives diversity and inclusion compared to any other company I worked at.

    Cons

    Sometimes the business units run super lean with resources and sales / marketing spend

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of setting strategy, guardrails and ideas / recipe’s for success.
