I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It was a joy to work with supportive, team oriented, friendly, and professional group of people at my location.

Cons

A reduction in budget resulted in hundreds of full-time faculty and staff being work force reduced.

Advice to Management

Using manufacturing method parameters to operate an educational institution does not seem to be effective. Perhaps the techniques used by current management are in need of change. If the reduction had been done at the top, many jobs would have been saved. Top management has driven the stock price down from $110 to $15. By that measure I should have lost my job. The CEO position alone is equivalent to 142 school positions.

    Pros

    They pay really well to treat you like garbage and have the opportunity to walk all over you.

    Cons

    Your job as an "admissions rep" consists mostly of calling prospective students 3-5 times a day. Most of the time you get hung up on and swore at and then you are still required to call these people until they request their number be removed. If you are lucky enough to schedule an interview, most students are turned off by the $45k tuition for an associates. All the while upper management is constantly threatening to fire you while doing nothing constructive to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like dispensable items. Stop micro-managing. Start being positive, it may create a more productive environment. Make yourself more available for questions and assistance (an ACTUAL open-door policy). Start being more open-minded to the fact that your employees work very hard and it might be the economy and cost of tuition that is causing lower enrollment.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Food at least once a quarter when students have open-house (and sometimes more - lunch on management), regular paycheck, okay benefits

    Cons

    Unprofessional atmosphere, Horrible Management, All about meeting numbers! numebrs! numers!, force you to lie to potential students just to get them to sign up, over worked and underpaid, office morale LOW, make friday and saturdays mandatory at least 12 weeks out the year (before the start of the quarter, the week of and week after), NO WORK LIFE BALANCE, only national accreditation, employees must "kiss butt" to stay on managers good side or will purposely make it harder for you to meet numbers (i.e. giving you old/bad leads) etc...

    Advice to Management

    Providing education should be the main focus - not about SALES. Need to treat your employess well and EQUAL and bring up the office morale.
