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

Pros

Completely online, never have to leave my home to attend meetings or teach house, no need to commute, arrange childcare, etc. Most of the students are wonderful and very diligent.

Cons

The pay for large classes is the same as for much smaller classes. Same pay for 9 students as 30. Some of the students are not prepared.

Advice to Management

Change the salary scale to be more fair. Teaching a class with 25+ students is extremely time-consuming and difficult and should be compensated accordingly.

    I worked at Kaplan University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The potential salary could be very attractive and aggressive.

    Cons

    Higher salary also translated to higher goals and could very easily mean losing your position if you could not meet those goals. The company doesn't treat it's employee's very well and pressures them to perform which leads to fraud.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the school organically opposed to high pressure tactics and big sales forces. Education is not another widget and you can not sales school, you can only present the option to potential students. It is still not determined that a 80k debt for education leads to a better life in America.

    Pros

    I was exposed to a lot of experiences in business and was able to stretch and grow over the years.

    Cons

    When I was with them we experienced rapid growth and struggled with hitting the right people in Admissions in Chicago.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in hiring the right people from the start.
