    I have been working at API Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Diversified staff. Certain people/positions are given large responsibilities, which can be a good thing. Opportunity to travel to other sites. Advancement/growth opportunities for those that are willing to consider other locations and/or business units within API.

    Cons

    The overall benefits package could be better, especially for a company their size. Communication from top-down needs improvement - doesn't reach all employees or there isn't any communcation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to all levels of employees and not just the executives and/or board.

    I have been working at API Technologies

    Pros

    The work is interesting and the product that is manufactured is used in very cool applications.

    Cons

    Management is poor and departments could be more successful if the bad management could be weeded out.

    Working at API Technologies is a whirlwind of responsibilities and demands.

    I have been working at API Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have come to grow very close to my division's office team. We are all close and get along, and I would consider the office my second family. As the company has been growing and expanding, human resources policies and procedures are being formalized. The continued structure and reorganization of administration has been important in creating consistency across the board.

    Cons

    Upper management, red tape, extremely rigged budgets, and a black and white work environment hold employees back from being there best. There is an extremely high turnover. Upper management does not communicate with employees and employees always find out important information from the company's investor website rather than management. (Example: business units being sold off) Quarterly meetings are only likely to happen per year. Raises are less than average. No bonuses. No sick time (it's wrapped up in PTO). No flex time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right people and let them do their jobs. Don't hire an experienced employee and then micro manage them. Allow employees to have continued education and keep growing within the company. Reward great behavior and innovation. Recognize employees for their efforts.

    I have been working at API Technologies

    Pros

    Good people in bottom levels

    Cons

    Worst management structure I have ever see. No Communication. Company treats employees like garbage, that's why there is such an extremely high turn over rate and jobs are always posted. Poor working conditions. Below market value wages. No growth potential. Stay away from this company if you have any aspirations of going anywhere in your career or being treated like a real person.
