    Pros

    People believe they are actually changing lives. Many of the reps are wanting to help others improve their status through education.

    Cons

    They are signing people up for a lifetime of student loans that they will not be able to afford. ADOA wanted us to sign anyone up that was willing to sign on the dotted line. It was as though the minimum criteria was to simply have a pulse.

    Advice to Management

    None.

  3. Arrogance

    Pros

    Remote work environment... the convenience of working from home can't be beat. Helping students is one of the greatest feelings one can hope to experience, no matter what educational institution you work for.

    Cons

    "Leadership" is very arrogant and constantly promotes how great they are and how Kaplan is a "GREAT PLACE". Ever hear the saying... "a fish stinks from the head"? This is the case in both academics and curriculum. They can care less about the faculty! The pure arrogance of the Deans and Chairs is like no other educational institution! This is a "For-Profit" organization and office politics rules the day!

    Pros

    You can do some of this work at any time, from your computer.

    Cons

    Can seem confusing and unnecessarily complicated. Too many websites. Good pay when your teaching but low pay for prep times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep It Simple, Someone
