I have been working at Apollo Education Group

Pros

Good benefits and reasonable pay, but this is not even enough to make it worthwhile working at this place.

Cons

Too much politics, too many negative overworked employee and lack of leadership support leads to lots of backstabbing and disgruntled employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please have regular check in meetings with lower level staff. Find out what they are feeling. You would be surprised to the feedback you receive. Also, corporate culture starts at the top so really look at the top and what their values are. As they say, it rolls down hill.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, fitness center, relatively stress free for my level, can telecommute one day each week.

    Cons

    The VP that I work for is a micromanager, she checks everything that I do and it's very frustrating. She tries to make herself look good in senior level mgmt meetings and pass my work off as hers. I am not appreciated at all. My pay is just under $100k with a small bonus paid quarterly. Most other Directors are around $115k - $125k. The location is also a negative, really bad side of town too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest doing 360 reviews on all Director level and above so they can see what is going on here.
