      Pros

      Ability to be part of changing people's future for the better. Working on a team that valued my contribution

      Cons

      There was inconsistency in the metrics the 6 years I worked there. At first dedicated employees who worked hard and made personal connections with their students and helped them succeed to attain their degrees were awarded with merit raises, leadership summit (performance) trips/conferences, titles and promotions. After the owner's son took the reins... everything fell apart. Now the company wasn't about helping adult students complete educational goals, it was about paying the minimum for inexperienced employees who simply pushed ill prepared students into completing a course and attain a Federal Student loan then offer no ongoing support.

      Great colleagues, rough industry.

      Pros

      I worked with fantastic people who were very knowledgeable and truly cared about student success. The work life balance was great. You weren't expected to work insane hours. I fluctuated from 35-50 hours per week.

      Cons

      The industry of private ed is dying as public schools catch up with UOP/Apollo's distance learning model & technology. Almost the entire L&D department was wiped out on multiple occasions. I think they keep employees based on tenure. There didn't seem to be a rhyme or reason (at least from a performance standpoint) for why some were kept and others laid off. Performance of middle management was always an issue. Nepotism hindered efficacy and culture.
