I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than a year

Pros

It was one of the best and worst experiences of my life. I had the opportunity to be a student and an employee.

Cons

I had the opportunity to be a student and an employee. There was no line between the two at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay less attention to the bottom line and more attention to student satisfaction.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Really, thats all I got.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive, hours are long/late into nights and weekend, nationalized policies (leaves no room for campuses to grow or operate properly), management is totally disconnected from the problems and just are interested in numbers to show share holders, no academic standard for students(student are passed along through classes to get a result, all the while ITT knows full well they can barely read or accomplish the job at hand), too expensive, no career growth for internal employees, poor financials(always writing off bad debt because students arent letting them get away with the unethical practices), everything about this place is a lie. Dont ever take a job here. Dont ever attend school here. In the end its not worth the stress and the drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. You have run a somewhat marketable product into the ground. You fail as managers. This school deserves what it gets for losing money, federal funding, quality employees & the bad rep it has to the public.

    Pros

    Surprisingly, ITT is actually committed to helping people get a real education; however, it's not right school for everyone. (students have to show up and do the work!) There are a lot of negative reviews here, primarily from the reps. At most ITT schools, reps come and go - they are the sales side of the business. If they don't make their numbers or if say the wrong thing to a shopper, they are let go. They are under a microscope. Then again, their job is simply to make calls, hope people show up for their appointments, and eventually enroll. The academic side is so different. These positions require faculty members to have a certain level of education (usually a Masters) and the work they assign the students is not easy.

    Cons

    From what I said above about the reps - it's a tough and stressful job, and most don't last.

    Some of the directors have no experience in management (at least at my campus) and it shows.

    Also, sales people having to deal with true academic types can be difficult. You can definitely see the separation between the two groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each campus is a different story. It really depends on how the Campus Director, the other Directors (finance, career services, recruitment, registrar) and the Dean work together. There are a lot of chiefs and sometimes, not a lot of experience. My advice to management - take some courses in management or at least read Covey!

    I have met Mr. Modany and I will say that I appreciate his efforts, his commitment and his focus on the future.
