Those with Integrity Need Not Apply

Manager (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Apollo Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA drivers license and a heartbeat will get you a job.
You don't have to do much to keep your job.Just let your manager think they know it all.

ConsA drivers license and a heartbeat will get yo a job.
The culture in this organization is very poor. Executives are out of touch and afraid to speak to anyone, therefore they only speak through emails and video clips. It's really pathetic. They don't care at all about students or their employees. Everybody below the 10th floor likens the executives to a clan of bad used car salesmen. I have been looking to leave as many of my co workers. But somedays it is just easier to do nothing and get paid rather than look for another job.

Advice to Senior ManagementA look in the mirror is long overdue.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
