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

Pros

Well, I can not think of too many Some of the employees were nice..

Cons

I have never worked at a place where you are excoriated over tasks you have no control over. If students do not come to class it is the teacher's fault. If a student drops for ANY reason it is the fault of the teacher and the program chair. I would be nice if senior management at HQ was subjected to the same treatment. ITT stock has gone from the high 70's to the mid teens in less than a year. Amazingly, all of the senior management at HQ are still employed by ITT.

This employer is very numbers and metric oriented and has lost touch with the human in human resources. The goals they expect you to hit are unattainable. I would strongly encourage anyone to not work for this employer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have lost touch. You are viewed by many employees as a business pretending to be a school. Start spending as much money on education that you spend on marketing. it is all about the students, that is who you are supposed to be serving, not the upper management at HQ.

    Pros

    Supervisors are understanding, clean work environment.

    Cons

    Schedule sucks, adjuncts are replaced, school downsizing even though they are making billions in profit. Instructors forced to work from full time to part time. When at one point you could advance, finds out you cant because they changed the rules and your degree doesn't count. Forces students to do online classes, not by choice. For one student to pay for a class, pays for two instructors, yet still focus on keeping the class size high, and reduce classes. Horrible management practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop thinking about money and try to give the instructors a decent wage they deserve. Without instructors there is no school.
