    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time

    Pros

    Agree with mission to provide higher education to working adults.

    Cons

    Change is constant. Always wondering when your time will come. Position and title changed every year and no salary increase for the last 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    To the new management, hang on to loyal employees and do not try to re-invent the wheel.

    Pros

    Great place if you are tech person.

    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.

    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time

    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

    Pros

    university of phoenix is a great institution trying to help working professionals improve their education to advance their careers; great mission

    Cons

    there are a lot of changes going on at the company, and pretty much a constant level of uncertainty and turnover; great people, though

    Advice to Management

    communicate more clearly, especially regarding strategic vision and be stronger on the execution side; speak more candidly about business challenges and constant turnover, including at leadership level

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work = good compensation. The salaries here are good and fair with market. Work/life balance is also good as long as you have the right people on your side.

    Cons

    Upper management in IT is clueless. I have to constantly educate VP-level, but the information never makes it to the top, only to get lost and not addressed. At this point, C-level are only out for their bonuses and have been whacking away at IC's in order to make budget which results in very top-heavy orgs with no foundation to support the business. No upward mobility and no "job of choice" as touted.

    Advice to Management

    Quit making silo'ed decisions on what technologies to implement. Quit firing good employees so you can save your bonus. Support IT teams so we can support the business!

    Cons

    The uncertainty of the for profit education sector, layoffs happen frequently.
