    Pros

    They use the latest technologies, and follow the latest agile methodology. Part of Washington Post which is a well recognized company.

    Cons

    Very very incompetent upper management. Absolutely no team building, absolutely no information sharing, upper management will spend on personal perks while developers and non management employees were treated as second class citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your non management employees as equals and provide clear communications as to what is going on with the company.

    Pros

    We empower students that would not be able to make it in a public higher education institution to reach their academic goals and show them how to market themselves to employers upon completing their program. Kaplan serves the students who are their customers and supports the students throughout their program track.

    Cons

    Rapid growth and acquisitions has led to many changes and restuctuting that has left behind some culture shock and morale issues both among faculty as well as among the students. The restucturing has also led to a lack of diversity in the upper levels of the campus that has been much discussed among the students who feel the lack of representation.

    Advice to Management

    Put more effort into knowing the individual campuses, provide guidelins for hiring that promotes a diverse mix of leadership at all levels of the campus, and make sure that enough senior level faculty are kept in budget cut efforts to provide leadership among the faculty so that the students feel comfortable that their instructors will be there throughout their course.
