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

    Pros

    schedule ok. dress code not too bad. i have a great manager.

    Cons

    old systems. overly frustrating processes. upper management has unrealistic expectations, does not care about employees or students. compensation is very poor. instead of working on technology upgrades or processes that would help all employees and in benefit to instructors, and students, upper management expects everyone to work harder with 100s of steps and exceptions in each process. mostly manual. lots of room for error which is not acceptable. a few of the directors treat highly educated people like children in a daycare worrying about lunchtimes and vacations instead of how to make itt a great school for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    grow up. treat people with respect and your turnover will go down. take millions away from the ceo and invest in the business that gave you those millions. hire people who have vision, not using employees as a power trip for ego boosting. stop blaming instructors for all issues. pay market value. you have highly educated and passionate people...tap into them instead of stepping on them.

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

    Pros

    You can leave your car in the parking lot while you travel (since it's so close to the airport). I am encouraged to use up all my sick days. Working late starts twice a week can be nice so i can sleep in or fit in a yoga class.

    Cons

    Benefits are a slap in the face...just embarrassing. Micro-management is abundant. It's a hard to sell an education you don't believe in (but that is a personal problem for me).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of the micro-management. It does not encourage productivity or motivation. Just stay away.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My campus had great co-workers.

    Cons

    Academic Affairs and Recruitment are always at odds due to conflicting goals. Also it is impossible to move up in the company, even after years of employment. If you do move up, no matter the position, you only receive a ten percent raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate and value your employees, especially the good ones. It's very sad that even when an employee deserves a "1" in their yearly evaluation, no one receives it because it has to be approved and signed by the CEO. What does that say about you Mr. Modany? HQ really needs to re-evaluate how to treat employees. The school has really gone down hill in the last 7 to 8 years

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Courses are taught online- no wardrobe or transportation costs.

    Cons

    Faculty managers insist on not supporting the standards proclaimed by ITT Tech, and in fact, state in emails not to follow them. No opportunity for a raise or promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screen the faculty managers a little more carefully. I had good luck for years, but the most recent one under whom I worked seemed to have scattered thoughts, and came up with strange metrics. One evaluation, I was told I graded too rigorously, then next, I was too soft.

    Pros

    Some great co-workers but main management all the way up to corporate HQ ruin interests of employees and students. Salary is good.

    Cons

    HQ and poor management ruin work-life balance. There is no standard for student acceptance and they let people in who barely passed high school attempt college level courses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not enough space or time for advice

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time

    Pros

    Depending on what department you're working in, it can be rewarding. Doesn't usually require particularly long hours. Offers medical, dental, and vision benefits, plus 401k matching.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive compared to the rest of the industry. Job responsibilities are ambiguous. The organization is very centralized, so managers have no room for creativity or decision-making at the campus-level. Extremely numbers driven, and HQ prescribes a one-size-fits-all goal to all campuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the process rather than the results. Take a closer look at each market you're a part of, one-size-fits-all is doing you a disservice in your smaller markets.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Teaching online is convenient. Helping students help themselves is always a positive factor. Having a 401-K with matching from company is nice.

    Cons

    Department chairpersons are constantly being replaced. Having continuously increasing academic duties taking away from dealing with students is frustrating. Instructor morale is low. My salary today is lower than it was 9 years ago, but more work is expected. Online teaching system (equivalent to Blackboard) is buggy. Extremely difficult to determine what my paycheck will be prior to actually being paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More pay. Stop varying the pay based on number of students. Send out email indicating how much our pay will be, and itemize by course.
