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

    Pros

    The day flew by as it is a busy environment. and pay was decent. One of the coolest things is that the CEO is down to earth and at times walks through the buildings and says hi.

    Cons

    Management seems to only care about results and not employees

    Advice to Management

    Be more personable with the employees and show that you somewhat care about them.

    Pros

    The work is fun and exciting. The people are great to work with. It's great to know you are helping people to learn and grow. The work environment is relaxed with very little management in day-to-day activities.

    Cons

    The upper management is segmented and tends to fight inter-departmentally. Marketing continually fights IT for control of the website. People in both departments are discouraged from contacting each other individually. All communications must go through the head of the two departments. This creates a bottleneck to get things done quickly and efficiently. The only accountability for projects not getting done lies with IT, even if the materials needed to complete the projects are not passed to IT until a few days before a product launch.

    Advice to Management

    Make departments accountable and have a project management system in place so that if one department doesn't fulfill their deadlines other departments are not held responsible. Have a consistent plan that is well communicated to employees. Don't set arbitrary deadlines when a project hasn't been properly communicated between departments. Get a copyrighter for content going out on the websites.
