I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This is a large IT employer with some state of the art hardware and software products and tools. If you end up on the right team it's a great place to work. Free education is a huge benefit as well. This is a good place to start your IT career, get educated and then move on.

Cons

Unfortunately, you're not likely to end up on the right team. Typically, there is a reorg every 18 months at which time you have a 50/50 chance of "succeeding elsewhere". You will NOT be mentored to improve your skills and move up. You WILL be used up and then replaced. Directors and VPs spend most of their day trying to nuke their peers.

Advice to Management

All Director/VP level managers should be replaced, every reorg focuses on the worker bees and nothing changes. If you remove the tribal warlords (Directors/VPs) you could create truly world class company. It's these mid level technocrats that continue to perpetuate the bad culture.

    Pros

    A great company to work for and the job is very satisfying. The employees and management make the experience one of the best jobs I have every worked.

    Cons

    Very demanding - not really a con but with family it requires 110% of time and since you are dealing with people and there needs it can be draining at times. Vacation and off time is necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue to listen to your employees.
