Pros

Learned a lot of new stuff. Working environment was good and all the employees were really nice and helpful.

Cons

It is really not much to mention. I would say people are too nice. Working hours are great as well.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Free Degree program completion. I worked in admissions and made nearly $70,000 a year.

    Cons

    Closed 13 campuses with no warning. As a single mom of four kids, not good! Offered jobs in other states but no relocation assistance.

    Advice to Management

    The least they could have done was offer relocation assistance. People aren't able to just uproot whole families!

    Pros

    Hmm, let me see. Nope, just a paycheck.

    Cons

    Where to start? Lay off after layoff, promises after promisses. Disconnected management. Unless you are considered an approved employee you only get to sit and work. No advancement, no opportunities, be careful not to upset the glorified employees and managers as you will be marked and harassed. Look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Experienced managers would be more helpful and stop changing the management structure so often. Cut back on the micro management as all the calls are recorded. And give the financial aid team a little more respect and back them up when advisors harass and bully them into making a student accept Kaplan funding.
