    I worked at Apollo Global Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Money, and that's pretty much it! And that is only if you have negotiated well before your epmloyment.

    Cons

    Hostile environment to its fullest. Eat your young philosophy. No collaboration or cooperation between any teams. The management is either not aware or could not care less due to the senior team's multi-million dollar compensations and the rest of the staff should endure the environment. They praise themselves for being the best at complexity, may be so but heavily at the expense of their employers. Incredible attrition...

    Advice to Management

    Care what is happening in your organization at all levels. From the senior investment and partner level down to your entry level employees. Prevent nepotism, establish an objective performance review system, the current peer review based system is inadequate and incorrect. And please educate your HR.

    I have been working at Apollo Global Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, great perks, nice offices

    Cons

    Of all the places I've worked, this is by far the most political place I've ever seen. Some people at certain levels (not even exec level) have carte blanche to treat people like crap, create blank checks for their projects, and break rules and protocols. These people are also allowed to be rude and defensive if ever questioned.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit feedback of senior folks by some of the people who interact with them. Don't ignore the small signs of bad behavior, act on them and correct them
