Mold Operator (Former Employee) –  Lowell, MAMay 4, 2018
Very hard to work here as a new employee. Very little room for learning. It’s a very fast paced and stressful work environment with a grueling weekly schedule. Very little time off for new employees. Pay is too low!
Pros
Decent benefits.

Technical Trainer (Former Employee) –  Rogers, MNApril 7, 2018
North Star Imaging in Rogers, MN is owned by ITW. The fat man in the General Manager position is false and dark. He's intimidated by intelligence and those of light. If he were removed, the whole company would improve. There are wonderful intelligent people that work there, but poor pay and hours. Most managers are good and fair. It's a great job if you don't intend to go anywhere.
Pros
People, technology
Cons
Fat general manager, pay

Pros
Room for advancement

If you are Hispanic, you might fit in better, because dominant language in office and manufacturing floor is Spanish. Management is horrible. Really bad and tense atmosphere.

Poor Leadership at the Director and VPGM levels
Accounting Manager (Former Employee) –  San Luis Obispo, CAMarch 10, 2018
The directors do not manage or have creativity. They are simply followers and take direction from VPGM.
Most of the middle managers do the work and get no credit and have limited career advancement opportunities.

Very short term thinking just going month to month and making the quarter.

Operations are very weak and the manager is very calculating and dishonest in personnel and business dealings with weak college education and management skills.

The management group is a den of thieves and will do anything to make it look like they have contributed and take credit for others work.
Very stressful and no advancement .
Pros
Excessive travel and seems to be unlimited budget.
Cons
Dishonest management Director of Operations and VPGM

Retirement Plans Manager (Current Employee) –  Glenview, ILMarch 5, 2018
ITW is a great company to work for. It's a bit old-fashioned in the corporate office, but any doubts about company should be placated by the company's performance, which has been fantastic.
