Something new everyday and the people were fun to work with
Technology Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Manchester, NH – July 12, 2016
While working for Kaplan everyday was something new. For example: It was decided to bring Imacs onsite and the local techs would be responsible for the installation and updating of systems. As a PC tech, this was a refreshing challenge to learn something new and grow with the company.
Always learning something new
Last 6 years to many layoffs - did not feel secure in job
Instructor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 25, 2016
I have been working for Kaplan for two years and it has been a good experience. My Faculty Manager communicates well and is always available, the assignments vary; sometimes you have great schools and sometimes you have more challenging schools (students), but overall, it's manageable..

My overall experience at Kaplan was ok. Some Managers were amazing whereas some managers made it difficult to get work done and stressed everyone out. Luckily, I was able to make some very good friends that I am still close to today.
User Experience Designer (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – May 9, 2016
I enjoyed working at Kaplan Professional Education. The flexibility of the work and the culture were outstanding. I can't emphasize enough the importance of an investment in user-centered design methodologies in creating customer facing programs and websites.
Great place to work as a recent college graduate. Not so much afterwards.

KU has been a great place to work since I started 3 years ago. The only negative is the lack of job growth, upward mobility, and low pay. I love the friendly environment and the management is fantastic.
Finance & Business Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 22, 2016
During my time at Kaplan I had the opportunity to work directly with the CEO, CFO, Presidents, and Vice Presidents. I was able to get a first had look at how a company with $300 million in revenue is managed and operated. I was involved with the business turnaround phase, and daily financial management of the firm. My Co-workers were all highly educated, motivated, and dedicated people. The hardest part of the job was maintaining profitability through expense management, while sales and revenue were flat. The most enjoyable part of the job was working so closing with executive and C-level management, and learning how to properly run a business.

Enrollment Counselor, Health Sales (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – April 3, 2016
Kaplan Test Prep is a great place to work... for probably most people. I work in their main call center office here in Orlando, FL. The people you encounter there are incredibly friendly and welcoming and I have had some of the best co-workers. My issue with working there is that the job itself is too repetitive and mindless. Not once have I ever walked in and really felt challenged or excited to be using my skills. I'm sure it's a different experience for others, this is my personal take. They do their best to keep employees engaged but I always found it to be a dull beige atmosphere.
I learned a lot of computer and communication skills. I think the hardest part of the job was the filing because the warehouse got very hot. My co-workers were very enjoyable to be around. They made work more enjoyable for me.
Financial Aide Professional (Former Employee) – Alpharetta GA – March 30, 2016
Very relaxed professional atmosphere, where a typical day involved running reports & numbers to ensure everything balanced for the students' accounts. The hardest part was configuring a refund calculation for each student while being compliant with the current government requirements. The most enjoyable part of the job involved helping others attain their goals.
