    I have been working at Kaplan full-time

    Pros

    This company offers competitive salary and amazing benefits (5 weeks PTO for tenured employees) and some departments allow for work-from-home flexibility.

    Cons

    Internal staff is very small and the work load and turn around time on complex assignments can be unreasonable.

      I have been working at Kaplan full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      can work remotely, often promote within company

      Cons

      If you are hired on to a specific book of business, don't expect to be treated the same as someone in your same role who has a bigger book of business. Your book is the luck of the draw but that doesn't matter.

        I have been working at Kaplan part-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Pay, management, and training are all top notch! I've worked for other test prep companies and Kaplan is a better place to work by a long shot. Great opportunities for working remotely.

        Cons

        Difficult finding local work. There were opportunities that required traveling, but local classes were few and far between, sometimes getting cancelled days before the start date. Would be difficult as a full-time job or if you depend on regular pay checks.

        Advice to Management

        Honestly none. All of my managers were great to work with. No doubt Kaplan has some of the most competent people around working for them.

        Not that much to do, some meetings are worthless
