    Long time APT Client Services Employee

    Vice President, Client Services (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    Pros-Lots of responsibility, career growth, and opportunities to be mentored by very capable people
    -Interesting challenges, and opportunities to engage in quantitative/analytic thinking
    -Well run company
    -Positive work environment and culture. Colleagues are generally very capable, yet modest.
    -Successful company, continuing to grow

    Cons-Need to be willing to put in flexible hours
    -Senior client services team members travel frequently

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up, APT is a great place to work. I think our biggest challenge will be to maintain APT's culture as the company continues to grow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Culture, Rapidly Growing with Lots of Opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsPeople are friendly, collaborative and really smart.
    No politics.
    Clients love APT making it rewarding to work with them.
    Rapidly growing so lots of opportunity - in particular as we grow there are chances to contribute to opening an office in new geography for APT or to contribute to building a business in new industry for the company which translates to a lot of career growth
    Focus on giving back to the community through APT Charities, and data-dives is a recent positive as well

    ConsThe work is consuming so if you want a 9-5 job job, this isn't it

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the great culture even as we grow

    Great place to start a career and a lot of opportunity for advancement

    Engagement Manager (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsAPT's young and incredibly intelligent employees make it an incredibly exciting and collaborative place to work. The management is very invested in the success of each employee and listen to concerns.

    ConsThe advising process can be hit or miss, as not all advisers are as interested mentoring as others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to make sure to maintain the open, collaborative, and non hierarchical vibe as they continue to grow.

    ProsSmall company that strives to act like a large company but lacks the resources. They are very good a marketing themselves.

    ConsRun away as fast as you can. They are very good a marketing but lack the execution. They do not have enough experience to help themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLose the arrogance

    EM

    Engagement Manager (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat culture. People are very friendly. Exposure to a lot of industries.

    ConsI felt the senior management stretches the junior consultants. The junior consultants work on 3-5 projects at a time. These projects could be in different industries and with different teams.
    I also feel that the company misrepresents itself to college students. Its a software company that uses its employees to solve a clients problem on the APT software. After coming from a MSc program I felt that the software was lacking in certain areas. Any problem that the software can't handle is avoided. The software requires tonne of data (Most of the interesting problems dont have data!).
    I was staying late in the night in the office because the software would take a lot of time to analyze and would break i.e. the analysis is not that hard but doing it on the software takes forever.
    The company has a shoe string budget for its employees.
    I felt that there was a lack of interaction with the clients top level management. Our day to day interaction was with junior managers who were analyzing the data. Rarely, did we present our results to the top brass. Our approach is to keep the junior manangers and analysts happy with the tool so that a good word would permeate to the top brass and the software would get re licensed.
    My clients required a lot of hand holding while using the software, often this lead to me being less productive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou do great awesome work but often ignore that the junior people work very late. The types of analysis are very focused and anything outside that focus is not conducted. Other analysis are avoided or seldom done. There should be a continued education budget for the employees. Employees should be allowed to go to international offices on APT's dime.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fantastic group of people, great place to learn and grow!

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsWell structured mentorship system. They are very interested in your growth as a developer
    People are honest and have integrity, they are very transparent internally
    Actually do code reviews to teach you, and give you interesting projects
    Work on real products that provide value rather than just optimizing for advertising clicks

    ConsBiggest con is that it's in DC and not sillicon valley or new york, but this is a personal preference
    The company is not a "hot startup" and it's not a consumer product, which if you want to go to sillicon valley, it may be respected less. At the end of the day though, you may learn a ton more here so it's probably worth it

    Advice to Senior ManagementI really wish you guys open an office in SF, at the same time I trust your decision to not have opened one since I know you have the best for the company in mind.

    Great company for growing a career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAPT is invested in their employees- they truly want to help you learn and develop a lasting career at the company.

    They have managed to maintain a start-up culture while still growing the company at a fast rate. Examples of this include a game room (complete with ping pong, foosball, and video games) and frequent happy hours.

    Senior management is open to and interested in hearing improvement ideas from all levels of employment.

    Fantastic benefits.

    ConsHours can be long, but the work is rewarding.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep maintaining the company culture!

    APT is a great place to start your career!

    Business Consultant (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    Pros1. APT gives its employees an incredible amount of responsibility and opportunity to grow from the start. I started at APT in August and have already had the opportunity to work very closely with the senior most people in the company, lead client calls, and take ownership of different analyses.
    2. APT is growing quickly and values people that are motivated and want to work their way up in the company.
    3. Not nearly as much travel as most consulting firms.
    4. We have hard facts to back up our recommendations to clients based on that client's data.
    5. The people, everyone is so nice and willing to stop what they're working on to help.

    ConsThere is a lot to learn in the beginning that can be overwhelming, but everyone at the company is really good about helping new hires get their feet on the ground as quickly as possible.

    APT: A smart, collaborative company with tremendous success

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAPT is a place unmatched by anywhere else -
    People are extremely efficient and reliable. They work hard, and work smart, to provide superior client solutions. The company feels small and makes everyone comfortable with breakfast/lunch/snacks as often as possible and the best office coordinator you could ask for. I imagine growing my career at APT for a long time!

    ConsPeople are given a lot of responsibility, which means a lot of work, but the work is rewarding and does not come without support from people across the company; employees are on the same page and push towards a common goal
