    Pros

    Diploma factory. You had to really screw up to get thrown out. There is no real education here. If you only wanted a piece of paper to call a degree this was the place to go. CEO embezzlement and more. Students were encouraged to cheat and exchange assignments. The books never lined up with the labs or the tests. It was a very poorly ran school.

    Cons

    Tens of thousands of students and faculty who were all fired via email out on the street after the school closes with no warning.

    Advice to Management

    Do not do anything like this company

    Pros

    There is very little overtime for people working at HQ. Company will sponsor visas for those who need it.

    Cons

    Practically 0% raises. There is no merit increase, just a cost of living increase which is insufficient. There is no way to reward employees who perform well or to get ahead

    Advice to Management

    Fire the dang CEO Kevin Modany.

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

    Pros

    Great position for someone with a passion for teaching looking to supplement their income or gain teaching experience. Classes are pre-designed but there is just enough wiggle room to add your own flare. Great position for someone who is outgoing and can engage students in the classroom - you must be able to engage students to do well here. Students are a blast (for the most part). Faculty and staff create a positive work environment. I really enjoy teaching here.

    Cons

    Very low pay for the amount of work you are required to put into the course. Between teaching a 5 hr class once a week, grading, , inventorying an setting up labs, printing course materials, putting together your lectures, taking online training courses and tracking student attendance/retention - you are easily making less then minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your adjuncts appropriately. I made more teaching one class as a TA in graduate school and only had 1/4 of the responsibilities.
