    I worked at Kaplan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people Education can be paid for provided certain GPA requirements are met of course Room for growth, depending on the division and department you are in I learned a lot, got an opportunity to grow, polish, and develop my skill sets while working with a truly remarkable group of professionals in a committed and caring environment.

    Cons

    Mergers and acquisitions are just part of the business model unfortunately and may or may not affect you depending on what your title and position are, however no one is immune...no, not even senior leadership, up to and including the Executive Officers.

    Good pay if you can stay long enough.

    Cons

    No room for upward mobility. Resources are limited and management doesn't offer much support, coaching and training are limited, very few supervisors/managers provide it and lack a lot of structure. Policies enforcement lack consistency. Better know somebody if you want to be treated with respect. High employment turnover ratio.

    Pros

    Not really any. This place is a real chop shop when it comes to a college. The offices are all ruled by favoritism and it seems like they really like keeping a revolving door policy when it comes to Admissions Advisors aka sales staff.

    Cons

    Long Hours Have to suck up to management to get decent leads Evolving / Increasing Quota no matter what Lying to prospective students about everything from financial aid, to telling them that their degree matters and/or their credits will transfer Extreme favoritism
