    I worked at ITT Educational Services full-time

    Pros

    There was definitely an opportunity to advance and be recognized, if you were willing to put forth the effort on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Inconsistency in execution, despite the fact that there were a large number of employees - from the executive ranks to the lower ranks - who had long tenure with the company.

    Advice to Management

    The revisions made to the company's operational model were showing a net positive effect - however, the unrelenting scrutiny and attacks against the sector ultimately proved unsurmountable.

    A lot of opportunity for growth.

    Pros

    HQ staff get a free lunch offered 3 days a week (M W Th). tickets to the zoo, symphony on the prairie, hot coffee bar, Christmas celebration and many other nice things. Often you get a chance to donate and get access to colts or pacers tickets that go unused on a raffle. Good bunch of people to work with.

    Cons

    As most larger organizations change slow, fair amount of the expected politics. IT is forward looking and open to change and new ideas

    Advice to Management

    Give the middle management more flexibility and budget to execute without having everything approved top down


  7. "Good IT culture - challenging regulatory environment"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The IT department was well lead and well run, with good communications. The overall mission of the organization was a worthy one.

    Cons

    The shadow from the Department of ED and other regulatory agencies investigations, which ultimately ended with the company declaring bankruptcy added a great deal of stress to the environment, and limited what the IT department could accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Not applicable (company no longer exists)

    I worked at ITT Educational Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck. I'd give this zero stars if I could.

    Cons

    Poor self image because you want to help people via education but it's sales driven and not fulfilling, management changes things constantly just because even for people with perfect attendance and attempting to for the one with perfect stats (department lead, de facto trainer, tenured person, etc,), management you can't believe in and you know don't support your efforts. Will do anything for a "sit" including letting them start classes without any aid paperwork or financial plan done.


  10. "Learning experience"
