    I worked at Kaplan College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The faculty was excellent as demonstrated by their significant commitment to student success and outcomes. Local top manager had no trust or confidence in anyone.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Expectations for work are unrealistic. Students and faculty have inadequate time off between terms/modules which is one of many reasons there is high student and faculty turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vetting process is so thorough and yet management has no confidence in employees' expertise, recommendations or ideas. LISTEN to employees.

    I worked at Kaplan College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with staff, and students was nice. It was a start up school so the salary was higher than normal.

    Cons

    It was a start up school so they did not have the resources available for the staff, faculty, or students. They hired the Director of Education to be the Campus President and he did not know what he was doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have a start up school invest more time and energy. Spend more time sending down people to train and listen to complaints when you get them.

    Admissions representative

    I worked at Kaplan College

    Pros

    Salary is great. You get to be apart of changing peoples lives. As long as you're good at getting students enrolled management stays off your case.

    Cons

    Tons of repeated outbound calls. They tell you to focus on the student but you really have to focus on the number. It's quantity over quality of students. There are lay offs when there already aren't enough staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the student and helping them to become successful.

    Pros

    I learned how to run a educational program

    Cons

    The program did not have enough students so I had to teach while trying to run the program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not sure if this is still happening, but next time give me a larger budget to work with so that I can recruit students.

    I have been working at Kaplan College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent learning environment. Dedicated and good looking instructors.

    Cons

    No cafe and students have to drive to get their meals. Consequently, they end up taking longer breaks. No wifi. Small library. Three's a crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider having wifi on the campus so the library is not crowded. Also, consider a cafe for hot meals.
