    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time

    Pros

    Company supports employees. Committed to providing a good environment and the tools to be successful. The education field is intrinsically rewarding.

    Cons

    Dept of Ed creates many obstacles that make it difficult to reward employees for superior performance. Bad apples in the industry have contributed to the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to tie income to enrollment, directly or indirectly.

    Pros

    Meaningful work
    Great, smart, fun coworkers
    Lots of cross-collaboration opportunities throughout the company

    Cons

    The industry being under fire is hard to swallow. Being forced to constantly downsize, or fearing the next government/political attack made it difficult for employees not to become overwhelmed. If the industry was in a better place, I think more would agree it's a great company and one that truly does right by its students and changes lives.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent, even when it's bad news
