No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Kaplan full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Opportunity to make a difference in the lives of my students.

Cons

Management that is very disconnected from the campus level reality.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to improve the bottom line by eliminating staff -- you are creating a nightmare of overworked, over stressed staff. You don't walk your talk.

    I have been working at Kaplan (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Began as a family, opportunities for advancement in the beginning, company was focused on students and staff success

    Cons

    Management has destroyed the company. Lack of real direction, constant firings, shift from full time to adjunct only, company cares about numbers and not people, company treats employees as expendable

    Advice to Management

    Leave. Get someone who cares and knows how a business should be run.

    I worked at Kaplan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The team at Kaplan is great, and the training is comprehensive so it's an excellent stepping stone for a first career.

    Cons

    After that however, there is little room for upward mobility and the starting pay, even with yearly raises will never be enough to sustain living in New York. During peak season you'll often work overtime, but unless your time is cleared in advance, you won't receive overtime pay.
