I have been working at Applico full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
I am currently an executive at Applico, been employed here for about 4.5 years. Anyhow, this industry(services) is unique as a whole, so writing a review is a little tough to do on company vs industry. One of the things that I have always enjoyed about this space, is that it is constantly evolving. Whether it is technology, methodology, tools, or clients, the job requires and elevates your diversity of skillsets and should appeal to people who are interested in what they DONT know. Additionally, the eclectic backgrounds of people that work at places like Applico provide an opportunity to learn from others, across disciplines, that makes it truly special.
Specifically regarding Applico though:
- Comradery: There is a strong sense of comradery here, which is a plus. You almost never feel like you are on an island, solving something alone, employees have a team at their disposal which is in stark contrast in how our offerings were aligned in the past.
- Experience: There aren't too many places that have been doing mobile as long as we have, with that experience means a lot of risk is mitigated up front, and we have a strong sense of how to strategize and build things correctly. Good experience = great products = happy employees = happy clients. Team synergy and consistency is important and that's something we value highly as an organization
-Talent: While experience is great, technologies and the business landscape is constantly evolving. Having people that are talented enough to identify new concepts, learn them, and apply them to Applico takes talent, and I truly believe that we have some talented people here, its a major reason why I get up in the morningCons
Admittedly there has been a lot of change. There were some early growth pains that Applico endured (like others in the space) that we plowed through and conquered. However that doesn't mean change isn't on the horizon the future. While we are constantly evolving and innovating, with that comes change and that change isn't for everyone. If you are used to a 9-5 job in which processes are old and stagnant then this probably isn't the place for you. Work/Life balance can be all over the map, sometimes its great at other times it can be stressful, it depends on the client, team, expectations etc. Again it goes back to consistency, if you are used to a routine that can certainly be seen as a negative. The office space is also old and a little run down, but I hear a new office space is on the horizon this spring!Advice to ManagementAdvice
Management has gotten much better about listening to its employees, especially over the course of the last 6 months, keep doing that. The employees have made this place, we all stay for each other...so keep it up. More company outings are much needed at least on a rotating or quarterly basis. The telecoms between offices can sometimes be tough but its been nice seeing the Boston people more frequently, it would be nice to see LA in person every once in a while.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied through campus job postings. Someone from the company reached out to me through email to set up an interview date. The actual interview was very informal. The interviewer mostly walked me through what I would be doing and then did a resume walk through with me.Interview Questions
