Individuals don't matter

Sst (Current Employee)

I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time

ProsGreat place to work, great people, it is so fulfilling to work with the students.

ConsThe corporate office doesn't allow any deviation from their own broken curriculum. They don't allow great teachers to shine.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmbrace NEW technology, understand that not everyone learns using the same methods.

Corporate Family Environment with Sincere Mission to Educate

Senior Admissions Representative (Former Employee)
Orange, CA (US)

I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThey have industry-researched curricula which employees can feel proud to represent to prospective students. In addition, the working and learning facilities are modern, clean and well-maintained. Books and learning materials are available to students on-site. There are excellent instructors who go the extra mile(s) to support student learning goals and a wonderful camaraderie within the admissions department and between all of the other departments in the school.

ConsThey are doing a lot of things right; however, management and the company, in general, would benefit greatly, if there was a better system for eliciting employee ideas and for promoting employees from within.

Advice to Senior ManagementFrom an employee's point-of-view, most of the pieces are in place that constitute a top-notch organization. Accessing more of the inner-wealth that the staff brings to the table and rewarding that talent would provide measurable dividends, not only to those employees, but even more so, to the company's shareholders.

Poor Quality of Education, and Corporate Rules That Prevent It From Improving

Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee)
Tarentum, PA (US)

I have been working at ITT Technical Institute part-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have taught at a few campuses. Some of them are terrible. Others are better because they are managed by better people. It all depends. It does seem to be decently relaxed environment.

ConsThe curriculum is absolutely terrible. The powerpoints and exams often have flat out wrong information on them, and never seem to get fixed even when people complain. Be prepared to come up with your own material as much as you are allowed. Class lasts until 11pm, so doesn't mesh well with a typical 9-5 job where you must be up early the next day.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe teaching pay is terrible, and the lack of full-time positions means no chance of promotion. What professional would want to bother working here? You're not going to get very good quality instructors at this rate, and your customers (the students) will suffer for it. And then they will tell their friends not to go here. It's a bad cycle you need to reverse now. Stop sinking so much money into marketing; your students are not stupid, and they are not impressed if your school can't show good academics. Put more money into adding new lab equipment, more computer labs, and especially paying good salaries to good professionals to teach (Enough so they can teach full time and make your curriculum better! There is high turn over because its impossible to keep up teaching if you work 9-5 and are then out late every night. Being exhausted means lower quality education for students). I promise it will be a worthwhile investment.

Not a great place to work if you are serious about education and teaching.

Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee)
Culver City, CA (US)

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

ProsAccess to technical computer software. Working hours and schedule works with a full time job. Good second job.

ConsPoor Management. No long term full time position. Difficult students. Poor working environment. Not really a college feeling, more like a high school environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
