    Pros

    Complex funds, lots of product and industry exposure. Not afraid to push down work to low level. Interact with other groups consistently.

    Cons

    Lack of consistency across teams. Disconnect between management and staff. Cheap out on simple things. Trouble retaining staff in each group.

    Advice to Management

    Need to review processes and scalability.

    I have been working at Apollo Global Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely broad exposure, ability to get involved with different projects outside of your role. Lots of talented and intelligent individuals throughout the firm. Free breakfast, lunch, and dinner stipend (if working late). Great team in place with lots of experience in different areas of tax. Exposure to upper management (CFO, CAO).

    Cons

    Fast paced environment where everything is needed now even though you only were told about it at 5 pm on a Friday. Limited resources and can be difficult to find a work life balance. Definitely a PowerPoint problem throughout the firm. Lots of requests from upper management that may not end up being relevant or even utilized.

    I worked at Apollo Global Management full-time

    Pros

    Access - bankers, sales guys, industry folks, etc. will pick up the phone when you call. Internal investment-related resources are good including colleagues/ network.

    Cons

    Pay is bare minimum for lower/ mid-level positions. Little potential for upward advancement, and only a slight interest in making people better at their jobs. The organization is very built out, including at junior levels (Apollo now hires directly from undergrad).

    Advice to Management

    Management does what it is incentivized to do - generate cash. It would be great to invest more time in teaching junior associates/ analysts, but management understands that people may leave and generally views people in a transactional manner.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment. A lot of smart, hard working people. Many type A personalities. High expectations. Great place to learn. Many on-site benefits - free breakfast and lunch everyday and massages, manicures, acupuncture, and chiropractor once a week.

    Cons

    Long hours. If you can't keep up with the demanding environment, you will figure that out within a couple of months. If you don't know how to work with type A people, you will hate it here. There has been a lot of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Need to figure out how to recognize employees and end turnover. Technology needs improvement.
