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

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

    Pros

    The pay is pretty lucrative if you're working through your degree while you're employed. They try to show employees their graditude through formal lunch functions that are catered by elite groups.

    Cons

    No potential for upward movement. Pay is stagnent because of the new laws on for profit schools. The industry is dying and probably won't be around long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at what it going on and be realistic. Lower your prices to a reasonable cost per credit hour and you will recoup your losses by more student enrollments.

    I worked at Kaplan University as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Available jobs at Kaplan because no one with any integrity will work there unless they absolutely have no other options.

    Cons

    Never speak your mind because that is not accepted at Kaplan. College seniors cannot write to save their lives, yet faculty are directly told to ignore that. Anyone who speaks out against the status quo is viewed as not being a team player. Not a quality education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all feedback because it is free advice that most employees will not give for fear of losing their jobs! Start using all of our federal money in a much more responsible way--you get most of your funding through federal financial aid, so we are ALL paying for your poor quality of education.
