I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time (less than an year)

Pros

There are a few people who generally care about the students and want to see them better themselves. The education is hands-on and is a non-traditional approach to learning.

Cons

Where do I begin? I was an admission representative for this organization about five years ago. The educational component is thrown out the window when all they push are getting students in classes. The recruiting base of students they are trying to draw from are the lowest end of society. These are people who have never made over minimum wage their entire lives and you're supposed to sell them on a degree that costs more than a house by the time they're done to the tune of over $90,000 by the time they would be done with a bachelors degree? The atmosphere is so micro-managed to the point it's sickening. The upper management would constantly threaten their employees. Numerous complains were made against this director and still it took so many years to finally get her fired. They monitor EVERYTHING you do. Bottom line is that it's not an educational institution. If you have a pulse, they will try and find a way to push you into class. If you only show up a day, they can report great numbers to their corporate office in Indianapolis. They're a profit center, not an educational institution at this point. The school is run by sales people, not educators. All they care about is how they can best con you. The turnover rate, especially, in admissions, is riduculously high. If you're not meeting with at least two people a week, you will be fired in a short time period. Pay is terrible and there's no room to move up into better positions. It says a lot that the stock has dropped substantially. Bottom line, don't work here if you want to do meaningful work!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees like an investment and help them grow instead of throwing garbage on the wall and seeing what sticks!! Treat students like they're an asset instead of a number!!!

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time

    Pros

    Good hours 9-6, must chose 2 days for night 12-9 and every other Saturday 9-2. Decent starting pay, no room for advancement or if you do, risk under performing and being fired. Employees are great and stick together, management must follow company rules and regulations. Helping students to find a technical career is a rewarding experience

    Cons

    Micro management of phone calls, contacts, scheduling, interviews, application, acceptance, and returns for financial aid. Must have an average of 2 interviews per week or can expect to be fired. Under constant review more of a robotic job and less of an individual. Tier system of top three reps for the week will get all the best leads while the others struggle. A plan for failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your own performance, stock has lost half of value in 6 months, enrollment is down, employees from Academics and Recruitment are experiencing high turnover. Fire the entire executive staff and create a whole new culture. Present culture is not working and is doomed to fail.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The students and staff are wonderful!!!!!! The concept of the university is excellent. Great hands on experience. Nice class sizes and the teachers are professionals in their fields which gives the students a "reality" education not just textbook and theory.

    Cons

    Constantly change the standards, guidelines, workload, and incentives. Take 3 steps forward and then 20 steps backwards. Refuse to provide students with the most current software and best practices for their chosen industries. Headquarters puts an unreasonable workload on the staff. Get your work schedule in writing in the offer because at least six people hired before me and after me had work schedules very very different from what they were told during their interviews and then told work the schedule or be fired!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None they don't listen to it anyway!
