Pros

You get paid every two weeks.They are very flexible when it comes to scheduling. They provide all new employees with free uniforms and training.

Cons

Their are not many room to advance. If you are not part of the team at Apollo, you don't have the chance to advance. They are just like any other contracted security. It's all about the profits.They mostly advance white employees over minorities.

Advice to Management

Please start acting like leaders instead of managers. When you put profits first, in the long term you will have a whole bunch of unhappy employees.

    - Middle managers given latitude to follow their own initiative.

    Cons

    - Throughout the company, an extremely cynical worldview.
    - No performance review, zero feedback, which limits future employablilty elsewhere.
    - "Profit sharing" in the form of 401(k) matching never materialized.

    Advice to Management

    Performance reviews, performance reviews, performance reviews. At all levels, we need feedback to grow. Tighten the heirarchy, formalize processes, and match retirement contributions when you say you're going to. Make the marketing match the reality.
