Pros

Apollo Group is a parent company of University of Phoenix

Cons

I think the Benefits are to costly, and you have only 1 medical to pick from, and the 401k really sucks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership is okay, but it seems like most companies...it's all about who you know. I've seen people get hired who don't have exp for the position.

    Pros

    Most people don't understand the culture of Apollo employees and how it operates. There are people who work long hours to keep the systems running and advancing in the competitive marketplace. They love to do what they are doing and have a good time with it.

    Cons

    Sadly - there is very limited opportunities for an internal employee to get promoted anymore. IT turnover basically went from being an Apollo operation to bringing on all the DHL employees who were released from their job. All the loyal Apollo people were demoted or put out the door. No always a bad thing to get rid of dead weight - but it is a freaking morgue with people scared for their jobs. People who have been with the company longer than 3 years are not promoted anymore because they are "tainted". Once the market opens up again - I am gone from there - too bad as loyal employees get kicked in the teeth for being loyal. Don't let them fool you - no longer will they be listed as one of the best IT places to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be done with the cleanup efforts - and thank the people who have worked they for longer than 5 years. These loyal employees make your lifestyle quite nice and bonus eligible. The moral of the people are at an even lower record. Do you really need an IT department with someone with the title of "Chief of Staff" reporting to the CIO? This place is really rotten.

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group

    Pros

    A continuously growing organization that is innovating and taking the leading role on adult education. The challenges are big but the vision is still there, to bring the best platform to support continuous learning on an information driven society.

    The working environment is good, and benefits are probably the best thing the company offers to their employees.

    Cons

    Salaries are not the greatest, yet there are many who would stay just for the benefits.

    The city of Phoenix is a bit boring compared to other cosmopolitan larger cities in the USA. If you don't mind the extreme heat on the desert then this place is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things are getting better with recent changes taking place.
