    I worked at ITT Technical Institute for less than a year

    Pros

    Being able to assist individuals who are willing to learn and go far in their choice of study.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is very much present.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, namely your instructors and on-site IT support technicians. Everything being micromanaged up to where only 20% of the "corporate academic curriculum" can be changed for a class to a single printer that could be not installed with a simple driver without contacting the national office in Indianapolis for permission is paranoia of the Orwellian type.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute part-time

    Pros

    Adjunct Instructors have open schedules.

    Cons

    CEO states the only employees important to the company are full time staff.
    Program Chairs and Deans are not held responsible for open abuse of staff, which is rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold your personnel responsible for abuse of Adjunct staff as they teach 60 to 80% of your students.

    Former Employee - Admissions Representative

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Local management cares about the students. They want to make a positive change in people's lives by helping them further their education. Co-workers and "most" of management were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    There was mediocre pay, a lack of training, a lack of upward mobility, frequent schedule changes and high turnover. In the 16 months I worked there, the turnover in representatives exceeded 100%. There was also an 80% turnover in local management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide regular training to employees. Stop insisting that reps obtain personally developed leads outside of work. These leads benefit the company but not the rep.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I cannot think of why I would recommend this to anyone.

    Cons

    If you want to feel a sense of pride in your performance this is not the place for you. Not busy enough,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to re-evaluate the system of grading employees on a weekly basis. The school environment is different that it was 5 years ago.

    I have been working at ITT Technical Institute full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Pay and Compensation package.

    Cons

    Long hours, they do not care about your family and/or outside life.
    pushed to enroll students that should never be in college. they only want "Butts in seats".
    they provide the leads that are still truly cold calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your imagine but starting to hire upper management that actually cares about the staff. Making recruitment work holidays and stay until 9 PM at night is OLD FASHION. Seriously ask yourself if you would be excited to get a call from a college on a holiday?
    would that call(s) be the difference between choosing ITT over the next college? Would you like if someone called your home at 8 or 9 PM at night and was trying to sell you a worthless Degree? The director comes in at 9 and leaves at 5 and says he is accessible to students.

    I worked at ITT Technical Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was a job that offered a chance to make a living. The employees who worked there on the ground level were easy enough to get along with.

    Cons

    Constant change and unfounded expectations created an unfriendly high pressure situtation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With a new CEO being appointed, perhaps they will have a chance to patch up a sinking ship.
