I worked at Kaplan University full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great pay and benefits.Free continuing education.

Cons

I worked for Kaplan for 3 years. The compensation plan was changed every 3 to 6 months making it impossible to increase your salary based on the goals set for admissions. Very stressfull work environment. DOA's were very subjective to employees.Ask a lot of questions before accepting employment with this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees with the same respect they give you. Empower them to do the job that you hired them for.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers (excluding management) were great. Most everyone was on the same page. Pay was decent, but not great.

    Cons

    Management was very poor. They are big on you seeking out additional training, but never respond to requests. Minimum requirements (usually 3 students per month) are unrealistic. Those minimums are set to the average number of students per year, however you are only allowed to miss minimum requirements 3 times per year. Statistically it just doesn't work.

    Moreover the training does not prepare you for the reality of the job. In reality it is hard sales, but trainers and recruiters lead you to believe it is customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't know where to begin really.
