Good company to work for but you trade a good title and work/life balance for low salary.

I worked at Kaplan Test Prep

Pros

Many internal resources that come with a large organization owned by a public company. Great opportunity for professional growth and advancement. They hire good people and many are fun and interesting to work with. Great place to work once you are in a an executive position. Top management (President, Divisional Heads) are talented visionaries and inspire confidence.

Cons

Executives can be somewhat arrogant and treat staff poorly (even though their bosses are the opposite). Problems in other divisions can effect top performing divisions. The company may have peaked and the economy and challenges from smaller market players may make it hard to maintain market share of this once great, for-profit educational company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be nicer to lower level employees and get off your high horses..this is test prep not a cure for cancer. Work on retaining top talent through better compensation.

    Pros

    The pros for working as a Campus Representative at Kaplan is that its flexible, easy, and you can put as much time in it as you would like to.

    Cons

    The cons for working as a Campus Representative at Kaplan is that they cut your hours sometimes, and you're not as valued as the teachers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give credit where credit is due. When campus reps do a great job, they should be recognized for it along with the Campus Managers.

    Pros

    Field and home based work
    Student and university interaction

    Cons

    Lack of training programs for new employees
    Company is not growing
    Is not, but wants to be perceived as a "sales" organization
    Consolidation of responsibilities has slowed company down
    Managers are talking heads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management: for current employees there needs to be a defined career path. Good people have been cut or left because of this.
