    Pros

    Had a great team and really liked the co-workers. The Innovators Accelerator product we worked on was pretty cool, but didn't receive the sales support it deserved.

    Cons

    Figuring out how to acquire the resources to finish projects was a challenge. Frequent re-structuring meant lots of instability of who managed our group.

    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great Benefits, - Big vision, - Not too stressful a work culture.

    Cons

    - Linked to University of Phoenix, thus when that part of the company under performs, everyone's budgets suffer.

    Advice to Management

    - Greater transparency between management and workforce would be appreciated.

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the department of digital analytics and consumer insight I was privelaged to work with some of the best web analytics professionals in the world. My direct boss, provided plenty of direction and gave me tons of autonomy to get my work done and work on special scripting projects which I enjoyed. I also worked closely with the GA implementation manager, logical architecture consultants, the entire product analytics team, web marketing analysts, and developers. Working here has by far been the most rewarding yet challenging role I've ever been in.

    Cons

    Enterprise-wide re-orgs, consistent lay-offs, and ultra-bureaucratic IT department. This is typical of many large enterprises and also related to the current state of the economy and nature of the changing online education business.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to hire more interns, but also make the hiring process more challenging. As you
