    Pros

    if you want to waste your time on projects that no none will care for this is the [place for you

    Cons

    Senior leadership is only interested in their own salaries and do not have any vision or plan to grow this company. People are getting laid off every year and the Senior Execs are getting multi million dollar salaries. There is no alignment of vision or purpose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you seriously care about the success of students pay more attention to why the students will not enroll in UOPX. .it is because the credits are non transferable and the value of the degree is next to nothing.

    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good intention (goals) managed by poor management and people.

    Cons

    Management and CTO are very political and put politics in front of everything including company/employee future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being jerks and let the low level engineers get to work. Stop nagging them to account for every minute they breath while on payroll.

    I worked at Apollo Education Group

    Pros

    Salary and overall compensation were adequate. Insurance was ok, but changed very regularly

    Cons

    personal growth was lacking in substance, middle management and frontline managers were not always great - the organization promoted individuals who did not perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the best of the best managers who not only manage the work - but develop your people. Find those leaders who are able to get the best out of their team - not those who manage their tasks

    Pros

    Great training on what an employer can do to ruin your life while keeping you thinking you're well taken care of. Learn what not to do while working here and you'll be well trained for your future.

    Cons

    They have all of their employees brainwashed thinking they are among the top paid in the industry. When i left, i immediately made 2.5x the pay in a lesser position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value your employees that give their blood, sweat, and tears to your success.

    Pros

    It is a paycheck, or a job not a career.

    Cons

    No true leadership and focus on the company strategic plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting unqualified people. This company believes in the halo effect.
