I have been working at Kaplan full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Up to date with the technologies, NY location. Lot of good people to work with, huge scope for learning new technologies, that was the case at least in my department.

Cons

Doesn't treat employees as assets. My advise to who ever accepts an offer is to to make sure all the hiring promises are put on a paper.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kaplan

    Pros

    The instructors are highly qualified and really enjoy helping students achieve their goals. Many of the staff and instructors work hard to build quality programs

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to manage or lead. Accolades are given based on personal friendships, not measurable, qualitative abilities. Students are given full rein of the campus. There is no support for faulty or staff. The workplace environment is extremely toxic, to the point where staff and instructors have fallen ill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire individuals with integrity and ethics. Hire individuals with teaching experience (college-level) in non-for profit education. Hire individuals who are experienced in a college setting as a provost or academic advisor (again, other than for-profits) Hire individuals who have extensive experience working with disadvantaged, minority and other challenging groups. Hire individuals who know the difference between management and delegation. Hire individuals who have a multicultural background, showing proven leadership and accountability.
