Support from management

Not at all. Management (DOE) was very unrealistic with goal settings, did not take into consideration of the short staff, and did not allow employees to assist in the decision making.

Internal Communication

There was no training... i was told to learn as I go

Office / Work Environment

Environment was comfortable

Company Image

I was very proud to be an employee... i am still in contact with some of the students I worked with

Job Security

There was no Job security, you could be laid off at any given time

Suggestions for improvement

  • To.communicate better with employees and not leave them blindsided

What I like about the company

I loved the atmosphere, engaging with the students ando helping them achieve their goals

What I dislike about the company

I was not given to tools to be successful and was wrongfully terminated

Company Culture

The company did not contribute to fairness and trust owing to politics and a lack of corporate competence

Support from management

Corporate staff made lives of staff hell

Teamwork

Campus staff generally worked together well, to varying degrees

Freedom to work independently

NONE

Office / Work Environment

Offices were cramped for our department at best, computer equipment was adequate at best. Ventilation at campus did not work well, air filters were not cleaned

Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance? Please.

Company Image

Employees did not talk favorably, most found the company to be short-sighted, and not to listen to line staff.

Job Security

Jobs were NOT stable. Kaplan had to sell to Education Corporation of America in 2015.

Workplace Safety

An OSHA inspection would have been interesting, particularly the air filters within the building

Challenging Work

I was proud when I was allowed to do my job and achieved success for my students

Suggestions for improvement

  • Now that the company has been sold...remove ALL Corporate level management within Admissions, Career Services. Allow for a fresh start with the new owners

What I like about the company

The opportunity to assist students in making a difference in their lives...when I was allowed to do so

What I dislike about the company

Had no idea about the commitment that staff had to the job, created a confrontational style of corporate management, conference calls that were performances rather than actual tools of communication
