Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Kaplan full-time

Pros

There are lots of talented, skilled and fun people to work with. There are a variety of projects to work on. The work environment is relaxed, with good work / life balance. The pay is competitive, and the benefits are good.

Cons

The opportunity to innovate is stifled by institutional resistance to change. There are too many low-value projects being worked on. Performance management (performance objectives, employee development) is an exercise in "going through the motions".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Identify current value streams, analyze them, then design new value streams that improve upon the ability to provide products and services to customers. Engage everyone in creating the envisioned future value streams, instead of having them work on low-value projects.

    Lack of meritocracy
    Limited room for growth
    Rampant favortism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be a bit more understanding. Management should seek efficiency with the input of staff. Also, management should be willing to help student advisors climb the corporate ladder instead of being threatened by new talent.
