This is a company in transition...I hope they survive the diversified revenue model they're attempting to transition to.

Pros

There are a lot of truly talented people that work for Apollo...even some of those that work at a C-level.

Cons

Unfortunately, that they're in transition. The company has taken on a clinical feel, where the staff working for and contributing to Apollo's successes seemingly mean very little.
Staff at Apollo are not viewed as assets, contributing to the company's success.
Leadership does nothing to show staff that they are valued members of the company.
Training and development within the company is seriously lacking; those budgets continue to get cut forcing staff to obtain/maintain their cerfications of their own accord.
A disconnected bunch of C-level execs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to those that work for you at all levels within the organization, and better involve them and their input when you make decisions that impact those who DO NOT work in the upper echelons of the organization.
Practice what you preach.
Innovation? When you seek input, no one hears anything back!
Better communicate.

    Pros

    Fairly Stable environment. Decent work-life balance. Decent Pay and Benefits. Lots of interesting technology. Nice common areas with snack and soda machines, refrigerators, microwaves, coffee. Healthy snacks often provided (apples, bananas, popcorn).

    Cons

    Lack of empowerment. Organizational changes on a regular basis. Technology professionals are treated as replaceable cogs in a machine. Many groups with often conflicting goals lead to many deadlocks in production. Spotty review process. Raises and promotions are often capped across departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly empower your technology employees to deliver. Develop a culture where your employees feel valued for the contribution they make.

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They care about employees
    They care about students
    All while having to care about both stock prices and long-term growth
    They are now trying to become a products company, which doesn't fit into their original mission (both pro and con)

    Cons

    Over-regulated (being the biggest is hard)
    Many parts of the company still operate like a small company
    The stigma of UOP is hard to shake
    They are now trying to become a products company, which doesn't fit into their original mission (both pro and con)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make your departmens more devisive. Instead, figure out how EVERYONE can work together.
