    I worked at ITT Technical Institute as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great teamwork with the faculty.

    Cons

    Students were often the driving force behind faculty reviews in that if a student was unhappy with their grades then the faculty member was let go. Students were not held to the standards that they were told at the beginning of the term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the standards laid out at the beginning of term, and if a student complains because an instructor holds their feet to the fire, investigate prior to letting go the instructor.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute

    Pros

    The pay is decent. They have a lot of luncheons. There's no clock to punch in to. No micro managing.

    Cons

    The leads are terrible. They have a tier system that causes the reps to fight and compete. The goals are only obtainable to the ones who will do whatever it takes to get them... compliance or not...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take away the tier system and distribute the leads equally...

    Management is way behind the times, does not appreciate their employees and loves to micromanage.

    Pros

    Helping people that really want to change their lives. Good pay. ok work load

    Cons

    train yourself, must sell the school to job seeking people, environment is a high school back stabbing do what you have to do to get students. if you are in to sales and tier leads then this is the job for you. tap people on the shoulder to be promoted. strictly in the office, no out of the office events like college fairs. They will sell you into your job if you let them. high turnover. Very few have college degrees. the Director of Recruitment has GED. all sales!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to communicate company news before we see or hear it on the news. still waiting. Get people that actually like sales not service professionals with psychology, community, or social degrees.

    ITT was a great place to work prior to 2008. After that they were way more concerned about their shareholders.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I got to meet. Not only were my co-workers great but the steady stream of new students meant that there was a lot of chance to interact with a broad range of people on any given day.

    Cons

    Early on the benefits were great, there was 401(k), retirement, and health insurance. By the time I left only the 401(k) remained. There was also a decline in the quality of the staff as they began firing people who were doing an excellent job because of numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the big picture of the school and what they provide. Being a diploma mill is a disservice to an excellent curriculum and what has the potential to produce quality graduates.
