    Pros

    Most of the employees are very easy to work with and support each other to meet the company goals.

    Cons

    The workload is very heavy in all departments, and resources are not allocated efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Spend those limited dollars more wisely to help reduce the workload for overburdened employees.

    Pros

    The people here are awesome to work with. Some of the employee appreciation things are nice (going to the race for free and the state fair, free lunch 3 times a week *u might not like it all*)

    Cons

    management is closed minded and clique-ish. Raises are given once a year (Feb) if given at all. No room for advancement unless someone else moves or leaves. High turnover and no replacements. Old equipment used (still using XP and Oracle 9 with no support).

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your loyal employees and empower them not just talk about it. Open your minds

    Pros

    Interacting and educating the students was very rewarding but did not outweigh the numerous amounts of issues with ITT. The one pro is that I am not there any longer!

    Cons

    The worst career choice I made. Low wages, long hours, and high expectations. The equipment, curriculum, and software is long out dated. There were times I would open the building at 7:30am and close the building at 12 midnight on the same day. I was expected to work at least 45-50 hours per week as a salaried (exempt) employee but was reprimanded if I need time to attend a doctor's appointment. Some of the required events Chairs had to attend outside of the 45-50 hours per week, were recruiting trips to high schools, recruiting trips to malls, graduations each quarter, freshmen orientations each quarter, club activities twice per week, workshops twice per week, seminars one per week, plus teaching four classes on top of the daily managerial duties such as calling absent students, checking equipment, running grade reports, auditing instructors, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking into the students' quality of education and stop worrying about the company's profits. Stop recruiting students who have no ability to work because of mental health issues. Hopefully gainful employment requirements will stop this practice.

    Pros

    Company communication Friendly people teaching company policies They love promoting from within you just have to be willing to move to a new campus Lots of different campuses throughout US.

    Cons

    HOURS Hours Hours.. shifts start 9-6, 10-7 11-8 and 12-9 Talk about not having a life! Sales Sales Sales-Always trying to sell the school no matter what position jobs rely on the sales so always worried about lay offs Majority of students don't even start school they never show up so all that hard work you do for them is for nothing huge divided between different departments. Majority of promotions are only through corporate

    Advice to Management

    Allow and 8-5 day so someone can have a normal life really show how much you appreciate your workers they are the ones selling the school keep the communication going any changes be sure to tell it.

    Pros

    Location. Benefits and wages about average. Free lunches 3 times per week.

    Cons

    Staff reductions have started. Questionable future of company. Needs new top leadership ASAP, starting with CEO and CFO.

    Advice to Management

    Board: Replace top leadership NOW, starting with CEO and CFO. Cannot afford to wait for CEO's upcoming departure. Need to announce that CFO is also leaving.

    Pros

    I enjoy my coworkers. You get a free lunch 3 days a week.

    Cons

    The entire corporate culture is toxic. Recently the company changed the insurance policy. If your spouse is eligible for health insurance through their employer, ITT will NOT cover them (even if you pay for it) and will fine you if you lie about it. Executives use the front door; everyone else is required to use the servants entrance (the employee nickname for the side door). Corporate priorities change daily. There is no strategic leadership. Kevin Modany does quarterly updates where he completely disregards the plummeting stock, litany of lawsuits, and lowered student enrollment. Instead rose-colored glasses list of people who have stuck around for 5+ years. The stock continues to plummet, Kevin Modany is pulling in $8.7M according to Forbes, and the board of directors is doing nothing about it.
