      Pros

      Used to be a great company with good pay, benefits and focus on the customer. Key phrase is "USED TO BE"

      Cons

      Management, middle management and any new hires trained by current management are inept. The whole company has been gutted and replaced by favorites of executives who don't have the correct skills or business acumen for the position. I've worked at Kaplan for a long time and saw a sharp transition from successful business model focused on students to an unsuccessful strategy to move money from workers to csuite members (read salary cuts for workers while Csuite bonuses and salaries were resumed). Management doesn't value customers or workers.

      Pros

      The satisfaction of helping medical students.

      Cons

      Middle management doesn't really know what they're doing and have caused the demise of Kaplan. While the pandemic was the seal that forced them to shutdown all their centers except for NY, it's middle management that caused the decrease in centers from over 100 to 5 in the first place. Their constant attempts at budget cuts and lack of innovation led to students not wanting to participate anymore.
