    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement is very beneficial. Overall pay and benefits are fair and in my position I was able to work from home.

    Cons

    The company is often doing reductions in workforce laying off hundreds of employees at a time. Because they are traditionally top heavy it is often the managers and higher level employees that are let go. Additionally as others have mentioned promotions are often based on popularity. An issue in my department was also the fact that expectations were constantly changing.

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyalty and experience with merit increases and promotions.

  8. "Faculty"

    Cons

    There are many. Impersonal atmosphere, low pay, few course contracts, no benefits, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your faculty what they are worth, they are the interface w/your customer.
