    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Not a lot of pressure at work. Occasionally deadlines make you work more than 40 hours
    - Good work life balance

    Cons

    - No flexibility at work.
    - No working from home.
    - You need to cover up even if you go out for one hour, this was the fact even when I was a permanent employee, not hourly employee.
    - Constant lay offs and changes makes you feel insecure.
    - Very low compensation and sad medical benefits

    I have been working at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing. My biggest mistake was to join this organization. Example for worst worst middle management.
    Example - in Apollo core platform team where I worked. Director left because he hated the company and since they were not able to find replacement, company promotes the engineering manager as IT director of group and that follows a promotion of inexperienced engineer to become manager.
    Selection criteria was that they were with the company for more then 2 years and were friends of upper management person. How easy! was that to screw life of all good engineers like me who were working under these non-eligible candidates. Later the entire team leaves.

    Cons

    Everything, stay away from Apollo. People staying(left-over) are mostly managers who cant find same position else where(off-course they cant) or engineers who are struggling with interviews conducted by other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Have a manager selection criteria. Not even one manager is qualified to be manager.
    Example - no one who left as manager from Apollo gets a manager job else-where, not even one. At least more than 10+ engineering managers left in last 3 months and no one joined else where as manager. Look at the quality of this company.
