Good company
Procurement Assistant (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COJuly 31, 2013
Pros: benefit incentives
Cons: stability of industry
For the 12 years I worked there, I learned a lot about Defense Contracting and Purchasing. It wasn't a walk in the park on some days and other days I felt like I was in Paradise...I was laid off at the beginning of April 2013 after the company offered early retirement at the beginning of the year for those who qualified. These are shaky times and EVERYONE – more... was on the chopping block. If it weren't for the lay off I'd still be with them...content. Not all co-workers are happy peaceful people all the time. There is one and though she didn't do her job, blamed others for her mistakes, bad-mouthed everyone, looked down on everyone, bullied, she taught me the most about who I was as a person and how to NOT treat others. I value the time there and the experiences and the people...even HER. – less

Good Technical College but poor ethics as it related to employees
Educational Recruiter (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCJuly 26, 2013
Pros: comfortable office environment
Cons: head quarters constantly changes policies for weekly, and monthly recruiting metrics; inorder to encourage high turnover.
A typical day involves contacting your leads to set appointments, work conducts and get applications. Persistence is definitely the key to obtaining good results. Immediate management is consultative while upper management is directive autocratic style. Co-workers seem to be nice sometimes but because of the environment cut throat. The hardest part – more... of the job is the frequent changes with compliance within recruitment. When you think that you a good niche on how to be successful they change the game and give you less or bad components to work with. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping change someones life and giving them new hope. – less

Great Opportunity For Advancement
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Seneca Falls, NYJuly 25, 2013
Pros: team leadership, and respect.
Cons: no opportunity for growth, once i reached status of executive assistant.
Personal Assistant to the Vice President of Company, and assisted other management staff with administrative duties. I learned alot at this company, as I started as a tempary employer, while my boss, Vice President of manufacturing was abroad. He came back, put my resume in for the job as his personal assistant. Great opportunity for anyone. Management – more... very professional, co workers also. Hardest part of my job was speaking to individuals internationlly, due to language barriers. My job was different every day, so never was bored. – less

Toxic work enviorment with unrealistic expections
Team member (Former Employee), Carmel, IN is the headquartersJuly 15, 2013
Pros: well maintained/updated facilities
Cons: no job security, unrealistic expectations of staff/management
The stress level for 90% of those working at ITT is astonishing, although it is hidden by most in management behind false smiles and attitudes. Expectations for most positions, including management are unrealistic, creating a palpable negative work environment. The turn over is very high, especially in the recruitment department. Most do not feel they – more... are safe in keeping their job, no matter the effort they put in. It seemed to me that 9 out of 10 were not happy working there.

One thing that was driven home to everyone was to provide superior customer service, which I observed to be excellent and professional at all times, by everyone. Also, it was my experience that we were told to stay within the guidelines and policies of the company as well as the accreditation board, with no exceptions.

The instructional staff is top notch, experienced with hands on knowledge of what subject(s) or in the fields they teach. The vast majority did care about the students succeeding.

Over the years, the focus of ITT Technical Institute has become one focused on profit, not the students. It is much more a business than a school of higher learning.

Benefits were priced very high, with ridiculous deductibles. Pay was sub-par for what was expected. – less

This place is rife with politics
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee), Dulles, VAJune 14, 2013
Pros: nothing other than the location
Cons: everything
Been there for over four years. Every project that I worked on had a deadline that was not achievable. They would underbid to get projects and then expect the employees to work overtime to get things done. The upper management is incompetent and would not understand the difference between a developer who can do gui work and one who can do embedded development.

One of the best jobs I've ever had. Great invironment
Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Reston, VAMay 11, 2013
Pros: great training, travel, and work invironment
Cons: not quite on the same level as the big boys.
I work at ITT AES for a little over 3 years. I travelled to other states to install systems, as well as had the opportunity to learn a great deal. They paid for my MCSA training, as well as my Vmware training. I met some good friends there. I think this is a very good company, and I wouldlove to work there in the future.
