    Benefits, fairness and colleagues

    Things used to be amazing once upon a time at Kaplan until the organization lost its way. The consistent change in direction and leadership has really taken a toll on the moral. Folks are being outsourced left and right and those left, are placed into position they are not qualified to do.

    No direction, too many RIFT and no vision/
