Kaplan University, a Washington Post Company

Sales (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

ProsGreat benefits, education package and personal development.

ConsCompany is contracting in an effort to find good sales strategy in the face of government scrutiny. Must be top producer with verbal talent to survive in the sales division of the company. Slackers need not apply because you will get three strikes and your out. There are performance expectation for each term and if you miss three you are terminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more honest in your conversations about expectations. People seem to believe there can be reprieve from termination is goal expectations are not met by intervention of management and that is not the case.

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