    I worked at Kaplan

    Pros

    Loved my coworkers, enjoyed working with students. Also enjoyed a lot of autonomy - as long as you are hitting goals, you are empowered to work in whatever way makes most sense for you.

    Cons

    Kaplan doesn't promote from within - in fact during my tenure they had a formalized "director development program" seeking candidates externally to prep and situation into director level roles. Very discouraging - additionally, regional and upper management seems to have a genuine disdain for employees working at the ground campus level.

    Advice to Management

    Lip service about employee engagement won't engage anybody - you need to actually value your employees rather than making them "feel valued" through half thought out programs.

    I worked at Kaplan part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Supportive place that allowed instructors to grow and become better and better.

    Cons

    Complex pay structure, once at the top of the tier, not really anywhere to go.

    I worked at Kaplan part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent, ongoing training and lots of opportunities to add more classes

    Cons

    Experienced high turnover in management due to ongoing restructuring. Managers were sometimes difficult to communicate with because they were working remotely and covering large territories.
