    Pros

    Your schedule is pretty flexible. There are meetings and places you "need to be" but for the most part, you can work when you want to.

    Cons

    Administration is too concerned with the bottom line instead of the quality of the graduates.

    Advice to Management

    Let the professors do their job.

    I have been working at Kaplan University (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Respect for employee....Kaplan has a good company culture and the benefits are good. They really do try to adhere to their claim of "a great place to work"

    Cons

    Shaky environment right now due to current industry issues. Declining enrollments due to government restrictions. Kaplan is being proactive with this hurdle, trying to implement new technology and a 3 week trial period for students

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with employees about the future plans for Kaplan

    Pros

    Great support from supervisors, lots of opportunities for scholarly activities, incredible CTL center

    Cons

    Class load can vary, sometimes work is not consistent. They give the first class loads to full time faculty, often leaving part time with 10 weeks and no job.

    Advice to Management

    If you want part time faculty, you need to give them classes regularly.

    I have been working at Kaplan University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment. Great benefits. Many opportunities for advancement.
    Management takes time to make sure employees are well trained and student focused.

    Cons

    The schedule is difficult at times since most everyone works evenings or weekends.
    They offer flex time but it's rare that we get it.

    I worked at Kaplan University as an intern

    Pros

    I enjoyed working as volunteer mentor for undergraduates as a student. I was a fulfilling experience to help others achieve their goals.

    Cons

    The only thing I regret is that I could not continue this after graduation as I am no longer eligible after this point.

    Advice to Management

    Management here was wonderful. I only suggest to continue doing what they are doing, and that is trying to search for ways to improve the student experience.
