Overall, great experience, though little opportunity to move beyond part-time.

Pros

Good benefits, great colleagues, fun work environment. The students tend to be wealthy and know what they want, but will do the homework asked of them.

Cons

Few opportunities to move beyond part-time, management is more than willing to lay people off after the busy summer season.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to what the teachers ask for/request - they are the ones who satisfy the students and bring in your paycheck!

    It was a good learning experience but it was also disastrous because of poor leadership and too top heavy in management

    Pros

    Benefits are good, 401(k), medical, dental, and Gift of Knowledge programs are all fantastic. Definitely take advantage of their Gift of Knowledge to earn a higher degree.

    Cons

    Too disjointed to organize itself effectively, at least for the subsidiaries they owned. Too slow to recognize different business units require different ways to manage. They manage as though all businesses ought to follow the same structure, benefits, and technological standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accelerated growth from a few middle-to-upper management decisions may prove outstanding for the bottom line, and the careers for said management, in the short-term; yet, the long term sustainability of those decisions ARE disastrous. Steady, smart growth with always the focus on student outcomes from their entire experience at Kaplan is always the priority. That experience includes, but not limited to, the very first call they receive from a recruiter to their last conversation after they graduate with a good, better paying job.

    Pros

    Great team, decent benefits, and a general feel good company to work for. Many people there for many years, so wealth of knowledge.

    Cons

    Lack of support and competence from the top at times, and lack of work life balance at times. Great otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No words to offer since the office in NY was relocated to GA and therefore advice is no longer relevant.
