I have been working at ITT Educational Services part-time (More than a year)

Pros

As an instructor: Course material is prepared for you. Management really wants students to succeed. They encourage students to attend class, learn, and pass. Management helps the adjuncts to not feel too overwhelmed - they help with paperwork and do everything they can behind the scenes so that instructors can instruct and not push paper.

Cons

Great place to start a teaching career - because adjuncts aren't paid much.
Any minor problem, such as technical issues, a a real issue due to the 10-week quarter.

Advice to Management

Offer a bit more flexibility to instructors. We are allowed to add 20%, and should be allowed to substitute up to 20% as well.

    Pros

    Good pay offered. They provide adequate training. They sincerely care about the students success. Most of the students are surprised at the difficulty of the courses.

    Cons

    ITT employs viral internet marketing in it's advertising campaign. This results in numerous bogus leads for the reps. to follow up on. There is an expectation to call a lead 3 times a day until contact is made. It made me feel like a "stalker'.

    Advice to Management

    Quit using 'pop up" ads in your internet marketing. It only leads to bogus leads and a poor image with the public.

    I worked at ITT Educational Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good quality of staff, corporate HQ convenient, few wholesale staff RIFs. There is sufficient funding to execute on reasonable goals, and there is an interest in staying with current technology across all divisions and departments.

    Cons

    Questionable business practices; forfeiting integrity for profit, middle-to-upper management should expect to be burned/churned to insulate senior leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for decisions - bad ones, as well as good. Empower capable staff, and exercise integrity-based direction versus herculean goals and blame spreading.
