    Pros

    Kaplan offers great benefits, tons of development opportunities, a great education (if you take classes there), competitive pay, and a positive work environment.

    Cons

    It can be stressful. Kaplan is very metrics driven, and they expect a lot from their people.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time taking some of the Kaplan complexity and creating simpler operations.

    Pros

    Ideas are welcomed and many times implemented. The staff is easy to get along with and we truly keep the students' best interest in mind at all times.

    Cons

    Growth is expected of staff but that is a positive thing. Not only for ourselves but for those we serve here as well. Their education is vital as is our continuing ed.

    Pros

    I enjoyed being able to reach out to other students and help them along if possible, it was really a fun student-work opportunity.

    Cons

    I believe there are a lot of people who choose online education as a means to just get their stipend from the government and it made it difficult because I rarely had people pass the mentoring program they voluntarily signed up for... Just because the refuses to respond to my emails.

    The company it's self was fine, but the students weren't.
