I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Organized, good campus-level support staff; Excellent chairs and faculty. Decent salary. Assisting students to find their career aspirations is what motivated to get to work every day.

Cons

It's all about the numbers to the company. My previous supervisor was Jekyll and Hyde; one day way up, the next way down, and because she was too often "way down", her words and deeds ultimately drove me from this company. If she was a reflection of ITT - and by her actions and her overt brown-nosing, I'd say she was - then I'd exercise caution when seeking work here. I'll repeat: It's all about the numbers.

Advice to Management

Hire more mentally-stable supervisors who can tactfully and artfully articulate responsibilities, and will cultivate and nurture a career aspiration, rather then treat you, ultimately, like chattel.

    Pros

    They pay really well to treat you like garbage and have the opportunity to walk all over you.

    Cons

    Your job as an "admissions rep" consists mostly of calling prospective students 3-5 times a day. Most of the time you get hung up on and swore at and then you are still required to call these people until they request their number be removed. If you are lucky enough to schedule an interview, most students are turned off by the $45k tuition for an associates. All the while upper management is constantly threatening to fire you while doing nothing constructive to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like dispensable items. Stop micro-managing. Start being positive, it may create a more productive environment. Make yourself more available for questions and assistance (an ACTUAL open-door policy). Start being more open-minded to the fact that your employees work very hard and it might be the economy and cost of tuition that is causing lower enrollment.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Department chairs give adjunct instructors plenty of flexibility on how to teach materials to students. Materials are provided, including access to several types of media.

    Cons

    Students do not take an entrance exam so their abilities vary (a few couldn't write). Also, several were there just there to use their financial aid and had no interest in the program. Others (in talking about criminal justice program) had prior convictions which would preclude them from employment in the career field.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide flexibility and support the instructors when student/teacher issues arise.
