    I worked at Kaplan University (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Online instructors work from home. One live session per week.

    Cons

    Too many staff meeting webinars for adjunct professor. Difficult to teach students how to write a sentence and spend time on subject matter.

    Advice to Management

    Set different parameters for adjunct online professors. Screen students for writing skills at least at high school level

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

    Pros

    Compensation was competitive and work schedules were fairly flexible. Lots of opportunity to get away from your desk and move around.

    Cons

    The managerial staff was incompetent; there was lots of staff drama and obvious favoritism. Employees will go out of their way to reach the top, no matter who they hurt. Managers don't get involved and training is minimal. A great lack of professionalism on all accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees, find out what motivates them and work with staff so that all needs are properly met.
