    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic learning environment, was supportive, great people to work with. I was really happy there for a very long time - until about the last 6 months.

    Cons

    Terrible pay (probably $20k less than at other companies), not much room for advancement, and crazy hours. Once Mike Sajor came on as head of Apollo Tech, things fell spectacularly apart. He is clueless to SDLC - coming from apparel industry had no idea of how software development works. Then they fired a lot of great people. Morale took a major nosedive after that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Sajor - get someone who knows how development works.

    Pros

    Upper management beyond local is excited and amazing. They believe in what they are doing and it shows when you meet them and in our compensation and group functions. They believe in training for everyone and that is an obvious bebefit!

    Cons

    They are too big to be available to keep all managers and locations poppong with the zeal of upper management. Numbers tend to be more important than the mission of the founders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved in the local universities and not consider things OK because numbers are being made.
