I have been working at Kaplan Higher Education

Pros

When there are no other jobs around, it's a good place to work

Cons

Unintelligent people using business speak to mask their lack of knowledge. Macho culture 'you must be here til 8pm'. What about judging people on output?
Snake in the grass got promotion

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get in some good people. Lose the macho 'investment bankers moving into education' types.

    Former Employee - Instructional Designer
    Former Employee - Instructional Designer

    I worked at Kaplan Higher Education full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was allowed to work autonomously as an ID for Kaplan's Financial Aid Department. I was able to introduce new applications (LMS, and authoring tools) to the team to improve training development and deployment.

    Cons

    The for-profit industry in general is struggling. Kaplan is no different. As a result, there were frequent cut-backs and layoffs, which affected job stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to find ways to become more efficient without going to job slashing as a first option. You lose a lot of good people that way.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Kaplan Higher Education full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good benefits, location, diverse population, good culture environment

    Cons

    Major staff turn around, Stressful job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate.... they dont care about the hard work, dedication, blood, sweat, and tears that their employees put into their jobs. These are lively hoods that they throw away, like it means nothing.
    I am only speaking about Philadelphia Center City vcampus only.
