    I worked at ITW full-time for less than a year

    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.

    I have been working at ITW full-time for 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.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at ITW full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Former Employee - Sales in Olathe, KS

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at ITW full-time for more than 8 years

    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.

    I worked at ITW full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Promote within the Company, benefits are good , great insurance and the tuition reimbursement is great ! Also the Company is really involved with United Way and there are opportunities to become involved in young professional network to help new employees learn about other ITW Divisions it's a great networking experience.

    Cons

    Long hours if in Management and beyond office hours, not a work/life balance Company. Sometimes upper Management does not really get involved with the day to Day production operations, I think it's important to meet the people that are working in production and not just getting to know the Managers or Supervisors

    Former Employee - Leasing Agent in Indianapolis, IN
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at ITW full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is descent but not worth the stress. Mrs.Sexton is very nice but not sure if she realizes how management is runining the company.

    Cons

    Where to start UNBELIEVABLY STRESSFULL Terrible upper management They don't rent to individuals under without a consigner (descrimintion). Terrible application process, applicants have to "score" to be qualified. Move people around all the time. They don't complete rental verifications, but ask the leasing agents to send them out for other properties to complete. When your doctor tells you that your blood pressure is outrageous and you need to stop what ever it is your doing that's causing it. That would be this company.
