    Pros

    Remote work environment... the convenience of working from home can't be beat. Helping students is one of the greatest feelings one can hope to experience, no matter what educational institution you work for.

    Cons

    "Leadership" is very arrogant and constantly promotes how great they are and how Kaplan is a "GREAT PLACE". Ever hear the saying... "a fish stinks from the head"? This is the case in both academics and curriculum. They can care less about the faculty! The pure arrogance of the Deans and Chairs is like no other educational institution! This is a "For-Profit" organization and office politics rules the day!
