Hire your teachers based on their teaching experience and education, not on their looks and gym routine

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Fort Lauderdale, FL

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

    Pros

    They want to get better. They have some nice goals (to be the best educator) but they are disconnected from the realities of the business climate.

    Cons

    Layoffs every quarter - even though the CEO & CFO gets up and says that the declines aren't as bad as they look

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are an education company not a technology company. Go back to your core compentencies and find business models to replace those that are obsolete.

    Current Employee - Premier Tutor in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Kaplan part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a premier tutor you set your own schedule, you accept the students you want, in the areas you want to travel to. The managers are good to work with and deliver the support necessary to work effectively.

    Cons

    There isn't always enough work to go around. Sometimes you get a student who is difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to sell the product.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
