Every business has its own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Itw?

Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers?

What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Itw?

ITW is dominated by accountants/controllers and sometimes Sales. If you don't belong to either of those categories as a manager/executive, don't waste your time at ITW. The General Managers of a business have no real leverage/power over their "controllers". They are puppets of a long, intricate hierarchy of mindless mid-level spreadsheet executives. ITW talks big talk about "innovation" and patents and what not, it's mostly just talk. Because they have such a diversified business group of more than 800 companies, there is no method to their madness. For the most part, innovation, R&D and Marketing functions are marginalized and most ITW companies, perhaps not deliberately, but as a result of a maniacal week-by-week watching of numbers to the exclusion of everything else.
