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

    Pros

    Flexible Paid Time Off, active engagement, room for growth but laughable raises.

    Cons

    Favortism, doesn't seem to care about students best interest, 25 cents is a joke for going from a standard agent to a Senior Agent.
