    I worked at Kaplan University

    Pros

    Company has great facilities and hires competent professionals. Though the employees have pressure to meet deadlines, job security here is pretty solid considering a poor economy.

    Cons

    There exists some politics within the office (the usual in any corporation) and there are employees with jobs that are probably not fully deserved. As in the corporate atmosphere, suggestions and changes take time and must go through the political process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire efficiency experts to shake things up and make upper management change for the better.

    Pros

    A nice working environment....cool people and overall relaxed setting. Good experience for someone out of college but not a long term career unless you move to a different position.

    Cons

    A true hustle and bustle environment and job security isn't the best. Everything is great while you're meeting the expectations.
