    Pros

    Helping students and having nice people to work with.

    The pressure to meet a quota. No time for a life outside of work. Crazy hours.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute

    Pros

    Management was very helpful and didn't micromanage.

    Cons

    The drafting & design department consisted of engineering, interior design, and graphic design majors. That required too much information to effectively train all of those majors in one classroom.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute as a contractor (more than a 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 have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros except for it's a paycheck and sometimes the campus staff can make the job a little more tolerable.

    Cons

    Work-life balance feels nonexistent more often than not and rather similar to retail hours- lots of nights, weekends, and holidays.

    The majority of the staff at HQ is extremely rude. While I'm sure they are understaffed, overworked, and under appreciated, it still does not excuse the fact that they are nasty and have a tendency to make employees not want to reach out to them for much needed support and guidance. Consistency and positive leadership do not seem to be high priorities for them which leads to high turnover rate on campuses.

    As a "technical" institute, it's embarrassing that our computer systems are outdated and highly prone to glitches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and treat your employees and students better! Focus more on quality education, curriculum, and staff instead of being more concerned with the bottom-line.

     If cut-backs need to be made to save money, it would be nice to start with the senior management making over six figures with ludicrous bonuses. You cannot expect people on campus to be enthusiastic about taking on multiple positions (e.g. Registrar/Director of Finance or Dean/Registrar hybrid positions) because a "reduction in force" needs to be done across the country every few months.

    Pros

    Pays a good starting salary
    Established company with opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    It is pure, GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS (James Foley, 1992)-type selling, with quotas, cutthroat competition, propaganda to get you excited about it, and promotions based entirely on your ability to sell. You call everybody ten times a day, as are all of your competition, so when you actually get somebody to answer the phone (which is tough, because they're ducking you), they despise you already. I didn't care for it, as you can probably tell, but I just don't have the personality for it. My best friend from there does, however, and so she is ranked as "Master Rep 4," making plenty of money. If you're a seller, go for it. If not, look for a regionally accredited school like National University to applied to if you want to get involved in this kind of education. National does not pay as much, but the product and the work expectations are hundreds of times better, IMO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be all about your desire to sell and ability not to take "no" for an answer.
