    I have been working at Apriva ISS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I found that working here was a wonderful experience. Working specifically in the End user support desk, We were busy, but we always had a bit of fun. You were able to have your own desk and if you needed help, it was right around the corner. Even if a manager or supervisor wasn't around, everyone expected you to act like an adult, and treated you like on

    Cons

    Sometimes the developers of the apps we were supporting wouldn't inform us when a new release was coming out, or came out. We would get phone calls and do our best to support the users, but didn't have a lot of time to prepare

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open the windows a bit more, the Customer Support department is a bit depressing

    Pros

    It's a great stepping stone for service members looking to transition back into civilian life or for college grads looking for experience before finding something better.

    Cons

    No training program. Senior members afraid to share knowledge. Most of the senior management lack degrees in the field they manage and actually frown upon employees furthering their education. They also refuse to acknowledge suggestions made by their experienced junior staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Promote education. Promote from within and stop hiring people off the street to manage this system. You have a great junior staff that you're about to lose because you refuse to promote them, I have two words, San Antonio. Biggest mess I have ever seen in any company, which could have been easily avoided had you promoted from within.

    I have been working at Apriva ISS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Since a leadership shakeup about a year ago, there is a strong team in place at the executive level. Most of the managers are outstanding. Performance is rewarded. Poor performance is dealt with. Compensation is competitive. Work-life balance is decent, no death-marches. HR actually seems to care about employees here. Technology is solid, and lots of potential to be a market leader, or juicy acquisition target, which could mean a nice new gig for all the technical talent.

    Cons

    Although they have been cleaning house, there are still a few weak links. Again, it seems they are trying to improve things since booting several execs who were toxic, so there is hope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You fixed the top layer, now fix the next couple of layers down. There are only a handful more of "mistakes" to fix, you know who they are, (hint: look in IT, PM, Wallet) then we will be close to nirvana.

    I have been working at Apriva ISS as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The managers and team are very knowledge sharing and I have never felt any stress. They follow the agile methodology. Very friendly management and colleagues.

    Cons

    No disadvantages. Sorry that my contract with them was very short. Would have felt happy if I got a full time offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for being the best.

    Pros

    Great potential for growth, cool technology, good people.

    Cons

    Only a couple real strong leaders on exec team... One President, POS Engineering VP, VP HR and CEO all professionals, the rest struggle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hire do their jobs. Don't swoop in and distract them or usurp their authority.

    Pros

    high-tech; new and interesting projects and products. Small company without red tape. Great benefits package; work-life balance is very good.

    Cons

    Lousy senior management team. Lack any semblance of organization -- everything is chaotic and done by the seat of their pants. They never do thorough analysis before jumping into new lines of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell to Google while you can. Let the seasoned employees that you hire do their jobs. Improve communication to the team.
