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

Pros

Located in sunny Fort Lauderdale. It has pockets of bright people. The idea of higher education for the non-traditional student is noble and worthy.

Cons

Unfortunately, senior leadership rarely listens to those people. Lack of clear direction, tends to respond rather than lead proactively.

Also,like other for-profit schools Kaplan has focused on the profit side and spends more than 3x on marketing than instruction. Just think about that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to follow the University of Phoenix, be bold and forge your own path.

    I have been working at Kaplan University

    Pros

    Its a job. The location and the co-workers are the only good thing about this place.

    Cons

    Too many to name, terrible place the mind games they play. So many people have to take a medical leave because of the stress. Be ready to give up at least 1 of your weekend days-no way around that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing mind games with people and if you start holding everyone accountable instead of 1 department maybe the company can be stable again

    I have been working at Kaplan University full-time

    Pros

    Florida is a sunny location

    Cons

    A terribly run "for profit" organization. I've been with the company a little over a year and have experienced 5 re-organizations and hundreds of people laid off. They will hire new employees and turn around and lay them off months later because they are bleeding money. It's unfortunate because the problems could easily be fixed, not sure why upper management hasn't taken notice. It would have saved a lot of peoples jobs
