    Once great company on a major slide to irrelevance.

    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time

    Pros

    This used to be a place with some of the top IT talent in the valley and was a great place to learn and collaborate with like-minded peers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the learning opportunities have decreased and many of the star employees have left. They fell into the chasm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too late. Best to pack up the shingle and go home. Replace yourselves with a new wave of leaders that understand technology and grasp where education is headed.

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers, true 40 hr work week

    Cons

    Delusional, overconfident executives, always a process for a process, very limited accountability for anyone outside of the frontline positions(except for the last round of layoffs but that was too little, too late), acronyms for acronyms, constantly radically changing policies, procedures, initiatives, work schedules, areas of emphasis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A software program combining the features of o*net in a cool looking format in lieu of real career services is going to backfire, it's time to add substance behind all of the style. Drop the relentless telemarketing and improve the graduation rates and offer real job placement assistance
