    I have been working at Apollo Education Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits all around, especially the 401k
    Decent pay, but still below average for the industry
    Depending on your location, some people are great
    Own multiple subsidiaries that you can work for
    No drug testing

    Cons

    Poor executive management - investment bankers are running the company into the ground just like they did when they were head of their banks
    Middle management doesn't seem like they want you to succeed, they don't help in ways for you to move up in the company
    Brown-nosers get ahead in the company instead of the hard workers, even when you clearly outperform the brown-nosers
    No where to grow, this company is a dead end for your career
    This company is going through layoffs every 6 months, never feel like you're safe

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and help them help you. The moral is very low at this company because executive management doesn't care. Give employees a career path and better pay and you'll have happier employees that will want to work for you, thus increasing their job perfomance on all levels.

    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The majority of the people working at Apollo have the best interests of the students in mind, particularly those working at the local campuses.
    Benefit package is better than average, though not as good as it once was.
    Great coworkers in IT, though most of the good employees have left or are leaving.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement or career progression.
    Little to no chance for a merit raise even as an exceptional performer.
    Accreditation issues mean that you should NOT take a position with company now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actions Speak louder than words, and your actions as a group tell employees that you are trying to squeeze every dime possible out of the company before leaving.
