    I worked at ITT Technical Institute part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was fun working with the students.

    Cons

    Low pay, curriculum is poorly designed (too much material to be covered in a given time).
    Students are recruited and signed up for programs for which they do not have the prerequisite requirements. For example, many students enrolled in the Technical Mathematics course are not even proficient in high school level algebra.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop recruiting students that are not qualified to begin their course of study just to get their money. It's a very cruel practice, since prospective students are lead to believe they can
    succeed when it's clear from the get-go they cannot. The recruiters need to take into consideration the knowledge and abilities of the people they recruit, and only bring in people who have the necessary background to succeed.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute for less than a year

    Pros

    Being able to assist individuals who are willing to learn and go far in their choice of study.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is very much present.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, namely your instructors and on-site IT support technicians. Everything being micromanaged up to where only 20% of the "corporate academic curriculum" can be changed for a class to a single printer that could be not installed with a simple driver without contacting the national office in Indianapolis for permission is paranoia of the Orwellian type.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Overall, great group of people to work with. Very professional, focused on doing the work the right way. Good curriculum, but extremely slow in implementing any IT projects - and usually not tested thoroughly in advance that damaged customer experience.

    Cons

    Executive management took a great company and absolutely ruined it. Made some very poor key decisions that doomed their fate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Small class size, Most students want to learn. good team work between instructors. Good place to get some classwork experience then try to move on to a higher paying job at a public college or community college

    Cons

    introductory classes have a lot of know shows. you are accountable for retaining students. lots of time spent in bureaucratic paper work.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Pay and Compensation package.

    Cons

    Long hours, they do not care about your family and/or outside life.
    pushed to enroll students that should never be in college. they only want "Butts in seats".
    they provide the leads that are still truly cold calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your imagine but starting to hire upper management that actually cares about the staff. Making recruitment work holidays and stay until 9 PM at night is OLD FASHION. Seriously ask yourself if you would be excited to get a call from a college on a holiday?
    would that call(s) be the difference between choosing ITT over the next college? Would you like if someone called your home at 8 or 9 PM at night and was trying to sell you a worthless Degree? The director comes in at 9 and leaves at 5 and says he is accessible to students.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was a job that offered a chance to make a living. The employees who worked there on the ground level were easy enough to get along with.

    Cons

    Constant change and unfounded expectations created an unfriendly high pressure situtation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With a new CEO being appointed, perhaps they will have a chance to patch up a sinking ship.
