    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Pros

    Pay is good, some people are truly decent.

    Cons

    Horrific management, especially at the VP level. Many other lower-level managers are just as toxic. Constant change because management can't figure out what they need to do. Constant backstabbing and sick games. Hard to move up in the company.
