I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time

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.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supervisors are understanding, clean work environment.

    Cons

    Schedule sucks, adjuncts are replaced, school downsizing even though they are making billions in profit. Instructors forced to work from full time to part time. When at one point you could advance, finds out you cant because they changed the rules and your degree doesn't count. Forces students to do online classes, not by choice. For one student to pay for a class, pays for two instructors, yet still focus on keeping the class size high, and reduce classes. Horrible management practices

    Advice to Management

    Please stop thinking about money and try to give the instructors a decent wage they deserve. Without instructors there is no school.
