    I worked at Kaplan University as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Available jobs at Kaplan because no one with any integrity will work there unless they absolutely have no other options.

    Cons

    Never speak your mind because that is not accepted at Kaplan. College seniors cannot write to save their lives, yet faculty are directly told to ignore that. Anyone who speaks out against the status quo is viewed as not being a team player. Not a quality education.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all feedback because it is free advice that most employees will not give for fear of losing their jobs! Start using all of our federal money in a much more responsible way--you get most of your funding through federal financial aid, so we are ALL paying for your poor quality of education.

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

    Pros

    Average wages for the work performed. Typically 40-45 hour work weeks on a M-F schedule, so they aren't driving you toward burnout.

    Cons

    Morale is low due to the multiple rounds of layoffs. Politics prevent bad projects from being terminated early and retasking people and $$ to better options. A lot of pressure for the sales staff/admissions. One's supervisor has a lot to do with one's success.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction, stick with it and provide the right resources and time to see if things are working. Interdepartment cooperation is poor. Leadership needs to take a more active role in ensuring collaboration happens in a healthy way.
