I have been working at Kaplan full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People are great. You make some great friends and there's the potential that if people like you, you can move up in the organization. There's also a big push to make it a better place to work which is really cool. Lastly, being able to work from home is a big plus.

Cons

Sometimes management really misses the mark in terms of recognizing the people who are actually keeping the ship afloat. There seems to be a real reluctance (or blissful ignorance) when it comes to recognizing the real doers within this company. It can be really frustrating if you're more of a doer and less of a talker.

Advice to Management

Reward the right people and hold those accountable who never actually deliver on their lofty promises or who actually end up costing the company money and reputation as opposed to actually contributing anything of lasting worth. It's a shame that you reward talkers more than doers, and it's a shame that you don't invest in the people who are/were truly invested in the company and in making the organization great!

    Pros

    They will take a chance on you, and let you grow into a job.
    It's a blast to work around a bunch of smart people.

    Cons

    They will work you until you break, replace you, and never miss you.
    Penny-wise, pound foolish. I had to argue to get a stapler at a school site. "Can't you use the school's stapler?" I was asked.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to middle level employees.


  2. "Fine, but local management and upper management need to get on the same page"
