    Pros

    When allowed, you really can change peoples lives.

    Cons

    Company only cares about bottom line and executive salaries. It is about who you know, who likes you, and not what you bring to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be required to teach at least one course per year and should practice what they preach about leadership.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to try out ideas.

    Directionless at times due to trying to prove they are different then the past. My guess is that with a change in Federal administration they will be able to find a firmer footing for their corporate strategy.

    Good opportunity for a knowledgeable applicant to negotiate a reasonable wage. The acquisition has shored up some of the bleeding. It can't get much worse?

    Cons

    Pay has stagnated, management has been changing the culture for the worse. Knowledge has left the company at an alarming rate.

    No clear strategic directions. Promotions are based on "personal connections" and not on quality of work. Executive management has no sense to what's going on in the classroom.

    Advice to Management

    Require all executive managers to teach at least one class per quarter.

    Good people to work with

    Company is in continual decline and has leadership in a continual search for ways to get rid of people so they can lower the head count. Creates a really poor environment to work in... fear of getting targeted as next to go.

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work Life Balance.
    Career Development Plans.
    Health and Well promoted with company provided on site gyms/yoga/ and more.
    If you have an adaptive personality type, Apollo is a great way to professionally learn and grow in a changing environment that thrives on identifying and making improvements and growth that improve the student and employee experience.

    Cons

    Bad publicity in recent years has resulted in a poor public image and may be an issue for some.
    With a large amount of change and unknowns, employees have become hesitant to knowledge share and work together on tasks/projects.
    There is bad employee morale as everyone wonders which departments will be downsized next.

    Advice to Management

    There has been much change in recent years. Management should invest time, effort and resources into their teams now more then ever before. Promoting healthy discussions and team building. And above all, recognizing those that have positively supported Apollo's change and overcome interoffice challenges.
