Negative Outlook

I worked at Kaplan full-time

Pros

HR team was very responsive to issues.

Cons

Egregious pay structure - C-suite makes ridiculous salaries (and benefits) while mid- and low-level employees have salary freezes and are continuously facing layoffs.
Also, a lot of mouth is given to the overall purpose of the company (provide education to those who aren't served by traditional institutions), but all evidence points to the company simply wanting to make money, regardless of what happens to students.

    Pros

    The instructors are highly qualified and really enjoy helping students achieve their goals. Many of the staff and instructors work hard to build quality programs

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to manage or lead. Accolades are given based on personal friendships, not measurable, qualitative abilities. Students are given full rein of the campus. There is no support for faulty or staff. The workplace environment is extremely toxic, to the point where staff and instructors have fallen ill.

    Advice to Management

    Hire individuals with integrity and ethics. Hire individuals with teaching experience (college-level) in non-for profit education. Hire individuals who are experienced in a college setting as a provost or academic advisor (again, other than for-profits) Hire individuals who have extensive experience working with disadvantaged, minority and other challenging groups. Hire individuals who know the difference between management and delegation. Hire individuals who have a multicultural background, showing proven leadership and accountability.
