I have been working at Apollo Global Management full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good compensation. Food is provided. Can move up the ladder. You can learn a lot. Awesome location.

Cons

Toughest work\life balance I've ever experienced. You're pretty much on email all week long. Long hours in the office. Most people are rude and think they are very important. No respect at times and try to push you down. Need to have a very, very thick skin.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being so rude. Being nice to your employees can go a long ways. Learn how to balance work and life on your employees. People are stressing everyday in there. Stop emailing on weekends. It makes the employee reply back even if its not important.

    Pros

    - Higher Pay than industry average for comparable positions
    - Company has good reputation and brand name
    - Steep learning curve affords one with a tremendous learning experience

    Cons

    - Terrible work life balance. Employees expected to be on call around the clock and over the weekend.
    - Unrealistic expectations from senior management. Too often we have way too limited time to deal with the required asks
    - Type A Personalities throughout the firm in all departments and at all levels. Need extra thick skin to survive here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Reign in all the nonsense and bureaucracy. We are a small company and don't need all this bureaucracy
    - A bit more humanity from senior management. Expectation to be constantly on call evenings and weekends can seriously grind out a person's stamina
