I worked at Kaplan Higher Education full-time

Pros

HR team was very responsive to issues.

Cons

Egregious pay structure - C-suite makes ridiculous salaries (and benefits) while mid- and low-level employees have salary freezes and are continuously facing layoffs.
Also, a lot of mouth is given to the overall purpose of the company (provide education to those who aren't served by traditional institutions), but all evidence points to the company simply wanting to make money, regardless of what happens to students.

    Pros

    Competive Pay. Laid back environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes too laid back. Advancement is limited. If you're good, they try to keep you where you are. They dont want to see you go. Unstable environment in terms of massive layoffs. Current employees are scared for there jobs on the day-to-day basis

    No opinion of CEO
