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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Saint Petersburg, FL

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and entry pay.
    Light travel for middle management.
    Great technology and resources.
    Opportunity to relocate most anywhere in the US.
    Heightened sense of compliance and integrity.
    Concerned and (usually) intelligent faculty.

    Cons

    Lateral pay for position advancement in most cases.
    Beyond attainable goals to meet raise requirements.
    Software used for administrative functions is disorganized and not standard or current to many other schools.
    The future of this type of school is uncertain and the fears of that are seen in numerous layoffs and department consolidations.
    Headquarters has a real lack of sensitivity to what each individual school needs. They make "business" decisions that effect students adversely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Neglect extreme cost cutting measures and reinstate an overly attentive customer service level. The tuition is in no way comaprable to the overall experience.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Department chairs give adjunct instructors plenty of flexibility on how to teach materials to students. Materials are provided, including access to several types of media.

    Cons

    Students do not take an entrance exam so their abilities vary (a few couldn't write). Also, several were there just there to use their financial aid and had no interest in the program. Others (in talking about criminal justice program) had prior convictions which would preclude them from employment in the career field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide flexibility and support the instructors when student/teacher issues arise.
