    I have been working at Apex Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They work fast to get you to meet the hiring manager. It went well. They have a knack for looking for the right people to fill the job. My position was on point! They know how to pick them. This company is growing and they don't play! They know how to move things along.

    Cons

    Try to get the salary in place instead of disappointing the candidate at the end.

    Apex has been the most professional staffing / consulting firm I have worked with to date.

    I have been working at Apex Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They are located in Houston, so I get to meet account managers in person.
    They are professional and excellent communicators (unlike some of the other agencies I've worked with).

    Cons

    They are still lacking some of the benefits provided by other staffing agencies.
    Many agencies now offer some paid time off (you get 5 days of PTO every 1000 hours).
    Many agencies are now offering a 401K. Even if there is no matching, indepdent consultants would still appreciate the tax-deferred saving opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider some additional benefits for consultants. As the market improves, many consultants will start to consider going back to permanent employment with benefits if they don't get benefits through their agencies. Keep up the great work with hiring excellent quality recruiters and account managers who are great communicators with excellent command of the English language!

    Pros

    Great people you work with, albeit its a young company they hire new grads so you won't find many tenured employees unless they are higher ups.

    Cons

    Training is boring, turnover is high, must meet call metrics and goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training

    I worked at Apex Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Recruiter made me feel important and treated me as a though he was personally involved in my career success. He stayed engaged through the my employment and was always there when I need to speak with him. Zack kept me informed on possible opportunities and how those in flight were progressing. Also received the rate I asked without any negotiations.

    Cons

    Really had no challenges working with Apex

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep good recruiters like Zack.

    Good Company to work for, Salary Good, Benefits stingy

    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Apex Systems as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a contractor there was very little other than a paycheck. The benefits are quite stingy/ expensive, but that's partly because I live in Missouri - the "No Service" state.

    Cons

    I had almost no contact with anyone from APEX, even when they knew they were letting me go from my account. The APEX account manager didn't tell my local recruiter, so I had almost no time to find another position. SO, I ended up being thrown out onto the street - unemployed. All this after bringing in 45/hrs per week for 3 yrs at top dollar - with glowing reviews and awards from the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start talking to your top performing contractors. We are people, not just a commodity.

    I worked at Apex Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent, but not heavy-handed, involvement with onsite customer. Lean but friendly prompting for process items.

    Cons

    Adding a bench or cross-staffing options would be nice for contract rolloff. Also, better 401K options, or allowing 1099 v W2-hourly, so candidate has option to set up own pre-tax 401k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mine was good.
