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

Pros

Used to be a GREAT company to work for. Good pay, acceptable benefits - GREAT co-workers.

Cons

Now it is but a shadow of its former self.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your eyes and look at who you have in leadership positions and how thy interact with others. When you see good people jumping ship for no obvious reasons, you should look at the leadership team to see what is driving them away.

    Pros

    Have some really bright individual contributors who are trying to do the right things to open access to education.

    Cons

    Strategy and leadership are ever changing which makes for a difficult environment when playing in an area of the economy that is undergoing such radical shifts. Accountability is an issue and management seems to be willing to make lots of bets but there doesn't appear to be a real drive for excellence. Hard to see this business returning to its glory years unless there are radical and immediate changes at the top and in strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose a strategy, select leaders who are capable of executing on that strategy, and hold leaders accountable. Too many dreams and not enough reality. Figure out your value prop, resource it with the best and brightest, and cut all the rest.

    Pros

    Nothing, expect free education only for UOP/Wester. If you want to study elsewhere they wont appreciate. Also company itself doesnt give any value for the degree from UOP.

    Cons

    Everything.
    Fresh grads are all product owners and business analysts. Engineers who are not good in coding/testing can become managers. And if you stayed for a while like 1+ yr and know little bit of the application you can be architect. Then its all bureaucracy/politics/networking(like eating/drinking together) which helps in getting promotions.
    Overall horrible place but you can relax and enjoy your days if you learn the insights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should consider at least reading UOP MBA materials to know what leadership or management means.
