I worked at Kaplan University part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Not much in the positive to say. There were some excellent teachers who genuinely wanted to educate the students.

Cons

Everything bad you hear about for-profit schools are true. Classrooms with not enough or the right equipment, books showing up weeks after a class begins, outdated or broken learning materials, admitting students who are unable to pay or admit students who should not be there. There were students who could not do basic math, students who could barely read or write, students who were there because a judge ordered them to go to school or they would have to go to jail. Constant mandatory meetings that were unpaid.

The list could go on and on and on...

Advice to Management

Focus less on profits and more on quality classrooms and students.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Kaplan University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great insurance and a few other benefits.
    OK place to work if you are unemployed, its stop over until something better comes along.

    Cons

    Zero job security, layoffs are made with no apparent rhyme nor reason about who gets axed.
    Zero employer loyalty, it's hard to be loyal after seeing what I've seen.
    Low pay for most, good pay for a few, especially management.
    Favoritism for a few, most of us are just numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a conscious.

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

    Pros

    Structured workplace with minimal flexability.

    Cons

    College like atmosphere with cheering pom-poms. Many of the employees I started with were phased out because of non-aggressive tactics. Managers focused on their own goals and employee reviews were all about numbers. Favoritism at its highest.

    Advice to Management

    If your hiring talent, act like you care about them as an employee and as an individual contributor. Thanks for the pay raise, but It never satisfied my concerns with your lead program.
