At least I got a paycheck

Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) Greenbelt, MD

ProsNot much in the positive to say. There were some excellent teachers who genuinely wanted to educate the students.

ConsEverything bad you hear about for-profit schools are true. Classrooms with not enough or the right equipment, books showing up weeks after a class begins, outdated or broken learning materials, admitting students who are unable to pay or admit students who should not be there. There were students who could not do basic math, students who could barely read or write, students who were there because a judge ordered them to go to school or they would have to go to jail. Constant mandatory meetings that were unpaid.

The list could go on and on and on...

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus less on profits and more on quality classrooms and students.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Kaplan University Review

    Admissions Advisor (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Kaplan University full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Great insurance and a few other benefits. OK place to work if… Cons: Zero job security, layoffs are made with no apparent rhyme nor reason about who gets axed. Zero employer loyalty, it's hard to be loyal… Advice to Senior Management: Grow a conscious. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
