Kaplan is a great place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Kaplan University for more than a year

ProsKaplan offers great flexibility in your schedule as it has remote positions available. The pay there is very competitive. They really seem to care about their employees as well as their students.

ConsThe only challenge I would say that I have had with my experience with Kaplan is their orientation needs to be a little more focused. It seemed extremely lengthy and didn't really give a new instructor a good idea as to what they were looking for the instructor to do within the classroom.

Best Company I have ever worked

Admissions Associate (Former Employee)
Plantation, FL

I worked at Kaplan University full-time for less than a year

ProsKaplan University is very professional and corporate environment, yet very comfortable to work as an employee and fun. They care about their employees. Although not a lot of incentives, there is enough to make you want to stay. Their health benefits are great as well, good working hours and wonderful staff including management. Best place I have ever worked in the USA.

ConsLike any other job, the sales aspect of it, if you are not meeting your goals, then you will eventually lose your job.

Working for Kaplan in a wonderful experience

Management (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Kaplan University

ProsKaplan is a wonderful company to work for. Kaplan uses the latest innovative technology, has a diverse population and professional development opportunities.

ConsKaplan should focus more on promoting from within and be more open to at least speaking with employees who are interested in advancing in other departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a lot of great talent at Kaplan, focus more on promoting from within.
