    Great place as a stepping stone

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    CEO is a visionary. If you are in accounting, this is one of the top private equity firms in the world that offers broad exposure to complex transactions and accounting issues you would not get to come across at a mid size or non-public company.

    Cons

    Firm culture is centralized around the front desk personnel (investment professionals) and not much focus / attention given to back office

    Management is not good, not enough people working, most times there’s extra stuff to do after shift is over

    Worse job ever

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The interview was the highlight of this job.

    Cons

    Terrible company with awful ethics. They do not care for their employees and customers. I had to leave for my mental health. Management were rude and would often shout at their staff. One threatening violence if a coffee wasn't brought with the appropriate level of milk and sugar added.

    Apollo provides boundless opportunity

    Sep 28, 2021 - Director in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I have found my experience at Apollo so far to be the most rewarding in my career. The firm’s culture is intense and fast-paced yet collaborative and collegial. As a relatively new employee, everyone has been so helpful and open to new ideas. Under Marc’s leadership, there is a clear vision for the firm and where we want to go. Despite significant growth, the firm still runs lean, allowing you to be entrepreneurial and try new things. I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention the free coffee (and cookies) and the beautiful new gym.

    Cons

    I think the biggest con is the misperception that people have of Apollo. It is is the most authentic place I’ve worked. Yes, we work hard and can be tireless in our pursuits, but you’re also provided the chance to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry who also happen to be really nice people. Hours can be long, as with all alternative firms, but the flexible hybrid working model (3/2) and “dress for your day” policies have made provided more of a balance.
