      I have been working at Apollo Global Management

      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.

      I have been working at Apollo Global Management full-time

      Pros

      Great culture - free meals, cool wellness initiatives, and brilliant people. Salary is competitive and there is some what of an element of work life balance. Can't succeed here if you shy away from hard work, but if you are someone who "works hard/ plays hard" - you will do very well.

      Cons

      Long hours are a reality, the place has potential to be a demanding (in ebbs and flows, in my experience). Manage expectations and pace yourself, take advantage of the wellness initiatives on site and take your vacation days.

      I have been working at Apollo Global Management full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good compensation. Food is provided. Can move up the ladder. You can learn a lot. Awesome location.

      Cons

      Toughest work\life balance I've ever experienced. You're pretty much on email all week long. Long hours in the office. Most people are rude and think they are very important. No respect at times and try to push you down. Need to have a very, very thick skin.

      Advice to Management

      Stop being so rude. Being nice to your employees can go a long ways. Learn how to balance work and life on your employees. People are stressing everyday in there. Stop emailing on weekends. It makes the employee reply back even if its not important.
