College Director (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – October 4, 2015
A typical day at work consists of several meetings, both on the phone and in person. You learn about policy changes in meetings and what other departments do. Management is a tough job as you are responsible not only for yourself, but everyone who reports to you. Their mistakes are your mistakes. Co-workers all come with a variety of personalities. The hardest part of the job is dealing with people's personalities, especially of the A type sales personalities. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you make a difference in someone's life. You know it when a parent sends you a "Thank You" note.
you can learn a lot in this small setting about every department
hard to find a balance between work and personal life at this company as a manager
Representative (Former Employee) – High Point, NC – August 16, 2017
Company made some bad decisions and loss title 4 funding. Had to close down, leaving students uncertain about their educational future. Many students were left with huge debts and credits that would not roll over into similar programs at other schools.
I worked for a company that was acquired by ITT. Many of my coworkers were dissatisfied. They voted to unionize. The sale was a move by management to nullify the union. Under different circumstances, I would have liked to continue. The pay was low. The work was interesting and fulfilling.

System Support Technician Work Study (Former Employee) – North Charleston, SC – August 2, 2017
ITT was my first job and one I did not apply for, I was recommended to work with a teacher who then left me in a cubicle while she taught classes and had me call people. After I was transferred to be the work study for the SST I found that the atmosphere was a friendly one but the leadership left little to be desired.
I loved working with students, helping them determine their career paths and accomplishing goals. I loved my co-worker, training them to success and watching them grow. The hardest part of my job was realizing that what was once a career backed by integrity suddenly was changing into something I wanted no part of
Instructor (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – July 31, 2017
ITT was closed due to politics. It was a "For Profit" company and the US government preferred "Not for Profit" companies. As such, they cancelled long standing funding mechanisms, which forced ITT to declare bankruptcy.
Great place to work in diversity with a productive staff, with the ability to sit in on other classes to watch and learn from the back of the room. Multiple programs and events to interact with students for support and peer uplifting.
