Former Employee - Military Admissions Advisor in Orlando, FL
Former Employee - Military Admissions Advisor in Orlando, FL

I worked at Kaplan University full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Structured workplace with minimal flexability.

Cons

College like atmosphere with cheering pom-poms. Many of the employees I started with were phased out because of non-aggressive tactics. Managers focused on their own goals and employee reviews were all about numbers. Favoritism at its highest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If your hiring talent, act like you care about them as an employee and as an individual contributor. Thanks for the pay raise, but It never satisfied my concerns with your lead program.

    Pros

    Assisting different people achieve through education. Company provides free education. Diverse co-workers. Great sales training. Academic offerings are very good.

    Cons

    Business and Academics don't know what the other is doing. Business Leaders from the president down, runs the company like an assembly factory. Individual thought or ideas are frowned upon. This is a job speed bump to most. No career growth. Company values are a show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The enrollments you need for your bonus, toys, and shareholders are humans, not projections. Your greatest asset is the ADOA and Advisors. The rules changed, but the culture you drive is still stuck in pre-GAO days. Ready, Shoot, Aim business is a failure.

    Pros

    nice co workers, very helpful

    Cons

    made it very difficult to grow in the company, lots of pressure to perform without adequate training, most management did not really help you-lots of standing around and talking. when you had questions, it seemed like it was an issue to get an answer.
