Topics regarding layoffs at Capella Education Co.
Stephen G. Shank sold off a tidy sum of CPLA stock. How is Capella making so much money, and why is its stock valued so high?
CPLA is getting positive business attention. What does that mean for workers? I assume that it means they will have to work even harder to make profits by exploiting students and workers.
"Gilligan's total pay was $2.97 million last year compared to $2.84 in 2014, Capella (NYSE: CPLA) said in the regulatory filing....Gilligan's 2014 pay package made him one of the most overpaid CEOs, according to a Minneapolis/St. Paul Business... — read more

More than 100 folks are gone this week. Mostly enrollment folks.
It seems that we'll follow the same path that UOP took. It's a shame as we were certainly a better institution (or at least we had more personal integrity and had better core values).
Capella took another big hit recently when it laid off 65 more workers. This time a large team of marketers were gutted to make space for a new marketing team. The strategy of the university is undefined and the lack of leadership and direction have... — read more
If the plan was to try to be different and innovate Capella went the wrong way. The cut people based on tenure. I happened to be lucky to not be impacted but all I have to say to them now is if you want what you've always had then keep the people... — read more
