I worked at Kaplan University part-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Generally good students, reasonably decent pay, more relaxed pace with ten-week classes.

Less administrative/grading burden than others (Phoenix, et al.)

Cons

Rules that change - unlike Phoenix et al, there are no clear and hard and fast rules about student assignment submissions, grading policy, etc. Heaven help you if you're "late" in grading, but students must be "accommodated" at all costs including submitting work weeks late, ridiculous hand-holding of adults, etc.

Advice to Management

Let the teachers teach, and let them treat the students like adults - compassion, understanding yes, but not bending over backwards so much we break our back.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful co-worker's, descent pay at the time, good benefits.

    Cons

    Unstable work environment, rules changed too frequently. You'd be trained over and over again as the policies and job function changed at least every month, sometimes more often. Everything was monitored, measured and evaluated. Big Brother was watching every move. This is a high pressure sales job. Think twice before accepting a position.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers really cared , others were all about snagging the sale at any cost, this included compromising integrity and expecting you to do the same.

    I worked at Kaplan University full-time

    Pros

    Honestly speaking there is nothing good about this company

    Cons

    This company is more like a factory
    Bad atmosphere
    This company hires pretty much anybody with no degree or minimum of education
    Everything else pretty much is in this category
