Old school finance co., looking to own your life

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Apollo Global Management full-time for more than a year

ProsComplimentary breakfast and lunch, cars home if working past 8pm, dinner if working late as well. Standard IB stuff.

ConsVery bureaucratic, old school style of management
Tough work/life balance
Leaving the office during the day is highly discouraged except for meetings with externals
HR is run by a sorority-like team

Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the times and make better use of technology to keep your employees connected. Create more firm-wide events that boost employee morale. Stop holding all employees on a time leash.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
