Unqualified cold call sales nightmare

Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

ProsIf there are any, none come to mind.

ConsProduction is king. Whether you're doing the best thing for the student or not is secondary. Your numbers are more important. Poor leads . . . these are folks that are, for the most part, looking for work and led to believe, by the aggregaters, that they are in the right place. The advisor is then supposed to get them into school. Finally, until the very end, management led everyone to believe that they were not going to close the site. They even lied to all of us.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou hire for bright people. You should probably treat them as such. Your people know what's happening. Get rid of your young executive management team . . . they don't have the experience or foresight. Management is too prima dona in that the very good idea to have all of you do the advisor job for a couple of days a year met with such derision. Who knows, you might learn something that would help you get some traction in that market space.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A company without vision

    Director (Former Employee)

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


    Pros: Located in sunny Fort Lauderdale. It has pockets of bright people. … Cons: Unfortunately, senior leadership rarely listens to those people.
