Advice to Management
Get the priorities straight!

Pays the bills. So does selling meth and prostitution - and they're tax free!
I'm usually very skeptical of company reviews because I know a lot of disgruntled employees like to tear their employees a new one anonymously. I wish I had of given ITT reviews more merit. I started looking for work within a couple of weeks of working at ITT. They are a shady bunch. I would be very skeptical of other private for profit schools as well. They lie, abuse and pray upon the desperate and unknowing.
I have been working at ITT Technical Institute part-time (More than 10 years)
The students for the most part are here to learn, occasionally you get the student who is here because a parent said they had do something, anything, to live at home. One of the things I like best is that I continue to learn from the students since most are working in the field already.
Local administration is great, we’re treated like family. Corporate sees the business as a sales organization and not educational in nature. As such all decisions are based on how many seats can be filled and not how do we retain the students we have. The reps bring the students in, the instructors lose the students seems to be the prevailing view from on high.
Advice to Management
Stop hiding behind industry trade groups. Get out in front and do the right thing. Yes we have made mistakes in the past, put that behind you and move on. Be just as concerned with the students as you are with the stockholders. Without the students the stockholders wouldn’t give you the time of day.
