    Pros

    ITT Tech is a very conservative organization that is unwilling to jump on the newest craze when a proven route to learning exists. The first and foremost consideration is to make sure that students have access to whatever they need to learn and make wise career decisions. Only employees with this same vision are employed by ITT Tech and it becomes a big family.

    Cons

    An organization as large as ITT Tech sometimes needs to make changes and, regardless of how small those changes might be, they take time. Students sometimes think we drag our feet adopting new technology when, honestly, we have already explored the possibility and know that the higher-tech solution might not be worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Slow and steady wins the race. Do not be enticed by current flashes in the pan; they never work out.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy passing my knowledge to the next generation; the twinkle in their eye when the finally 'get it' is priceless.

    Cons

    I made $15.375/hour. I could only work 24 hours per week. They paid no extra for tutoring students with special needs (blind, deaf, speech, ls, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    you do a reasonable job with the curricula. Some textbooks are horrible. Sit in class and talk to the students.
