      Former Intern, less than 1 year

      Great Company with an Awesome Work Environment

      Jun 7, 2016 - Intern in Glenview, IL

      Pros

      I came in as an intern last summer to work in the Strategic Sourcing group in eSourcing. I have amazing team members that taught me much more than just eSourcing, but upper management was very involved in the best way possible. In the first couple weeks, in project and team meetings employees would go out of their way to ensure I knew what they were talking about and why they were doing what they were doing. I wasn't some intern that was just there to run and get coffee but was actually a contributing member of the team. I given the project lead for an internal RFI, even though this was a smaller project we had it was such an awesome learning opportunity that showed myself and management what I was capable of.

      Cons

      Very classic, formal business environment (not that its a bad thing) but not like your millennial start-ups where you can wear whatever you want and blast your music at your work station, it is very business professional.

      A Very Horrible and Unprofessional Experience

      Jun 28, 2019 - Shipping Manager in Frankfort, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Worked with some great people my level and below.

      Cons

      Horrible upper management. No concrete foundation, no structure, no official training procedures, no support towards success, and s very stressful environment that is caused by the persons running the facility. Both are closet racist, that talk down to any minority during any type of conversation. The turnover rate for seasoned employees has reached disrespectful numbers.

      An exciting workplace due to constant innovation. Always a challenge

      Nov 12, 2017 - Production Supervisor in Philadelphia, PA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Competitive salaries and benefits with flexibility in daily work schedule. Great people on the shop floor. Middle management does their best to keep the fires burning in the production team despite facing an uphill battle against upper management. Always challenging which is perfect for me

      Cons

      Consistently battling streamlining processes for efficiency. Always a challenge using equipment leftover from the industrial revolution when there a 10 generations newer tools available today. Upper management refuses to spend money to improve production and generate revenue.

      Pros

      Great products and service, focused growth/targets and has great employee benefits. There are many employees who have been with the company for years and are extremely helpful and valuable to the organization and customers.

      Cons

      Communication between departments could use support from upper management. No marketing support available. Internally divided between segments, although seems to be reducing this divide.

      Enterprise strategy is destroying day-to-day business

      Jul 26, 2014 - Marketing Manager in Boston, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits. Until the restructuring started, great management team and great colleagues to work with. If you're a college graduate, great opportunity because you'll get preferential treatment over everyone else--with no accountability.

      Cons

      Since restructuring started, most are uncertain if they will have a job in a month, even upper management. The environment is very untrusting, in fighting between departments and very frustrating to get day-to-day things accomplished because no one will make a decision. Every little thing has to be approved by several people. All authority has been removed from middle management.

      Pros

      Although they might be blind to issues, upper management is fair. Benefits are above average than in other companies. Safety is a major priority. Employees are integrated into some areas of decision-making which is not common.

      Cons

      ITW recently acquired new companies while closing and laying off previously held ones. In doing so, the company had to hold back benefits and payraises in order to subsidize the pruchases. Do not expect a personal connection to the corporation as one would find in a single owner or family-run bisiness. The coldness that comes with working in a corporate atmosphere is very apparent.

      Pros

      Great brands and good benefits

      Cons

      Upper management is new to the industry and learning the business on the fly. If interested in going into sales, run away from any open sales positions as bonuses are few and small if paid out. Bottom Line Profits more important than organic growth. Cite example of no one internally interested in applying for the open National Sales Manager position at ITW.
