    Since you come in and layoff so many people you should have a good exit process., Where people know what to expect when they quit.

    I worked at Apollo Global Management full-time

    Pros

    Very large and established PE Firm. Lots of opportunity for growth and development for the right person.

    Cons

    Office politics are high and the Admin Staff is rated second class over even Associates and get overworked tremendously. Pity. Assistants are the glue that holds it all together. Much work needs to be done to the reception desk crew. They need to really step it up with Directors of First Impressions.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear in the exact roles of employees will play upon entering work there and remember to treat ALL employees equal.

      I worked at Apollo Global Management full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good benefits structure at first- this changed unexpectedly when the company was bought out.

      Cons

      Poor management. One hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Horrible atmosphere, which became worse after the sell. Very little training or management accountability.

      Advice to Management

      Good luck!

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

          Pros

          great teams, easy going supervisor, and good benefits, Redbox remains the consistent leader in rental automation kiosk. The long term goal is just to put boxes where needed (read rural,) and start to remove kiosk from overpopulated areas - removing the one on every corner in your cities and larger towns.

          Cons

          For years it has been trying the streaming game, first with Verizon and Rebox is now on its own. Oddly enough, the competition in streaming is a well established companies called Netflix and Amazon. Redbox is shackled with movie company agreements and high use of staff in order to provide entertainment for the masses. It remains the song of lost horizons, if Redbox can make just to this general ambitious thing, it...

          Advice to Management

          Don't have much to say to management except we know Redbox is now only Redbox, but how does that matter in today's economy. Competition is already hard in the streaming and movie companies are demanding longer wait to rental agreements. How can a small company get someones hard earned dollar against established giants who don't have movies but produce entertainment through their own means? Unless Redbox produces its...
