    I have been working at ITW full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefit package is industry standard

    Cons

    Leaders speak a lot about values but little sign of walking the talk.

    Leadership lacks empathy and is only passionate about numbers

    Advice to Management

    Stop the talk and start listening. High turnover rate of good employees is a sign of a great company gone bad
