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

    Pros

    The company offers great benefits, provides a lot learning opportunities, and willing to give people a chance to make movement laterally or upward. The educational benefit is awesome.

    Cons

    There's plenty of feelings of uncertainty going around with all of the recent and impending changes within the organization. The pay is not great. Almost all positions offered here pay substantially higher at other organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house as needed! There are so many people who are not adding value and don't intend to do so who suck up valuable resources. Fix what's broken and leave be what isn't.

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and great benefits. I like my boss, my position, and the ability to telecommute.

    Cons

    I think leadership, or lack there of, has slowly been driving the organization into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus on marketing and ad campaigns as much. Focus on the classroom and providing service to students. I think the university tried to grow too fast and did not have proper controls in place. We need to get back to basics and provide quality service and education.

    High caliber management and colleagues. Great culture, solid processes & standard operating procedures. Very attainable expectations, fantastic working environment.

    Not a lot of room to move up. Lots of longevity w/management. Management either stay until they retire or move on from the organization, so there is not a lot of opportunities to get promoted.

    Pros

    Brand - be able to leverage the Apollo groups clients to open door is a positive

    Cons

    Leadership - The Sales & Professional Development groups should work hand in hand yet this is not the case, the leadership of these teams are more concerned with covering their butts than exceeding a clients expectations. Project lead times bleed on and on ultimately resulting in a clients lack of interest to work with us.

    Advice to Management

    LEAVE!! You have somehow managed to ruin a good company, you will not leave you'll keep firing good who you blame for AEG's problems. The problem is you!
