    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 rate in all departments, all levels, yet the senior management thinks this is the way in a PE shop! It is NOT. They should learn how employee retention is done from Blackstone.

    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.
