    Pros

    interactions with students. Helping them toward their goals.

    Cons

    Poor work schedules. Unrealistic goals. Lack of resources. For a technical school, not very technical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SELL! Modany has no clue. 4 million dollar bonuses on a high salary while underpaying and firing good people.

    Pros

    My direct management is great. I would work for or with him anytime. He has helped shield the people working for us from a lot and does a good job a making sure his people know he cares about their career goals as well.

    Cons

    No pay incentives. You only get cost of living increase based on the government recommendations for raises. Everyone at HQ gets the same raise each year. No bonus below VP. So the only incentive you have is to not get fired. This really crushes moral and go get 'em attitudes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micro-management starts at the top. The CEO has his hands in every detail of the HQ department's everyday work. He constantly changes direction or interjects change late in the game and costs the company more than he saves by derailing efforts at the most expensive time. He also has unrealistic expectations of how long something should take to complete, so everyone cuts corners to meet his deadlines and we have a lot of sub-optimized crap being turned out. Then we again spend more time fixing things then we do working on new value add efforts.

    Stratified thinking at the top - "old boys" network; sub-executives used as scapegoats

    Pros

    Good quality of staff, corporate HQ convenient, few wholesale staff RIFs. There is sufficient funding to execute on reasonable goals, and there is an interest in staying with current technology across all divisions and departments.

    Cons

    Questionable business practices; forfeiting integrity for profit, middle-to-upper management should expect to be burned/churned to insulate senior leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take responsibility for decisions - bad ones, as well as good. Empower capable staff, and exercise integrity-based direction versus herculean goals and blame spreading.

    Pros

    The self-paced online trainings are frequent and relevant to the position.

    Cons

    ITT is in the profit making business, not the education business. Staff are stressed out trying to keep students enrolled only so the college can keep collecting tuition money rather than give the students a good education. We are told to give passing grades to students so they can continue their education (when really i tis so ITT can continue to collect). Of course many of theses students end up with degrees they did little work to get becasue ITT is only interested to make them pass (not learn) hence its emphasis on student success. The whole cuture is about getting tuition income not about give students a quality education. They are expensive, students end up with large debts and can't get good paying jobs to pay back loans, while ITT ends up with their money and gets richer and richer. Shareholders are happy. Students remain jobless and burdened with debt for their overpriced ITT education. There needs to be some regulation in private post secondary education. It is imoral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close down shop and stop ripping off students to line your pockets. The quality of your programs do not compare to the cost. It pained my heart to do the work with the Director breathing down my back about increasing tuition income. (tuition income is increased when students are happy and satisfied with what they are getting for the dimes - hence they stay rather than we having to run after tham). And how about you properly train your campus directors who deal in stressing their subordinates for the sake of keep the campus in top categories. A stressed-out employee is not an effective employee.
