    I worked at Apco full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, a CEO & upper management who really care, large enough to be stable, small enough that you're able to make a difference, many people stay for 20+ years, opportunity to learn lots of new skills, you're allowed to laugh and have fun with your coworkers in a laid back environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes people are allowed to stay employed long after they've proved to be a drag on the company, often times things can get so busy in certain departments that vacation time & family life can be pushed to the back burner. This is one of APCO's biggest problems. Also APCO does not tend to hire the most talented IT developers. They look for cheap rather than experienced which causes long project delays and a lot of work to end up on the shoulders of the most knowledgeable staff. Burnout is a problem in IT, though not in other parts of the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor the amount of OT people are doing for you: the nights where they stay up till sunrise and then come into work the next day. Appreciate those people. Hire talented & experienced IT people who cost more but will stop long delays from happening on implementations. Have higher standards for products launched so there's not so much "clean up" after the launch.
