I have been working at ITT Educational Services

Pros

Good place for a person to stop their career aspirations, and then focus on family or other things of life. Great health benefits. Good recognition of family and life style balance. Seldom are long hours required. Decent 401k program - 3% match on 6% contributions, 3yr cliff, meaning fully vested after just 3 yrs.

Cons

No bonuses and no effort toward process improvement. The company business strategy is about 6 or 7 years old. It is in need of a serious re-tooling. There are serious questions about how much further the current strategy can continue. There is no mention of new components of growth. Dress code is old school and flex-time is still a foreign concept.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop the bleeding - create some opportunities for people to progress and advance at HQ

    Great for Lawyers; if you want to be an educator or help people, this is the worst place to go.

    I worked at ITT Educational Services

    Pros

    They were great at first, until you you started asking for them to follow through on promises made.

    Cons

    No professional integrity. You were never told to break the law, but you were told to do whatever was necessary to keep a student enrolled and generating a revenue stream.

    An anonymous "ethics" program was implemented with an "800" number. Numerous complaints quickly followed with management determining who each of the "anonymous" callers were and reprimanding them. Needless to say, calls to the ethics line quickly dropped off, which management touted as a sucess (no one is calling in because we have no problems).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why does the company spend more an lawyers (as a percentage of expenses and as a percentage of revenue) than drug companies?

    You have a perception problem and it needs to be fixed. Quit being so cheap on providing quality instruction (e.g., instructors, books, labs, etc.).

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

    I worked at ITT Educational Services full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
