      Pros

      People are very nice and appreciative of your work. There are a lot of positive changes going on. Apollo had a work life balance issue which they are working hard to fix. They are growing fast so there are growing pains that will level out once everyone is hired. I feel lucky to work here and see the changes happening especially with Diversity. This is a major focus for them

      Cons

      Non as of yet but I will update once I see anything worth while

      Toxic Environment- Stay Away

      Pros

      Salary and Bonus is all that is good.

      Cons

      Management are clueless as how things are run. Extreme toxic culture where they put you down. Either you know it or not, no mentorship or appreciation. Work like crazy and sacrifice social life. CEO resigns because of his link to Epstein shows the credibility of the firm.

      Good opportunities if you can survive the bureaucracy

      Jun 22, 2021 - Associate

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Tons of responsibility (including the mundane) and career paths designed to move those who perform up the ladder quickly. Interesting deal work when the transaction is real.

      Cons

      Intense and growing bureaucracy more and more geared towards the life insurance capital pool. Less focused on business analysis vs. leveraged finance.

      Pros

      - Unlimited coffee and snacks

      Cons

      - Salary is not competitive, pay is on lower end despite them saying otherwise - Poor/toxic culture and management treats support staff as disposable and second class - If you are not white and from a rich background, you are not important. No diversity and inclusion whatsoever - Super cliquey environment, including HR
