    Pros

    Working at Alpaytac will give you the best "hands-on" education of the PR and Marketing Business. Employees learns all aspects of the business and the emphasis is on learning how be successful in all areas from writing and research to client and media relations to team building and creative thinking. Whether you are just out of college or a seasoned professional, Alpaytac challenges everyone to learn and grow. I particularly love that the company has a strong internship program that focuses not only on education, but hands-on experience and that many of the junior staff have begun their careers as interns and stayed on and quickly worked their way up the ranks. There are also fun monthly contests where employees are financially rewarded for for their accomplishments.

    Cons

    Alpaytac has many big clients that require a lot of attention. This can sometimes mean long days to keep up with deliverables. The management tries to keep these days to a minimum and is willing to compensate the hard work with incentives like flex days. Must be a focused worker with a strong desire to be successful in this field to be good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees and implement positive changes to help the company work as efficiently as possible.

    I worked at Alpaytac, Inc. as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some of the staff was friendly and enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Where should I start. Firstly, clients are like a revolving door. They come and go quickly. Alpaytac makes promised that they cannot deliver. Upper management is awful. They lie to employees and clients. Employees are frowned upon of they decide to take lunch outside of the building. They are also expected to work rigorous hours. I understand that the pr industry is constant however there is no work life balance here. Along with ever moving clients, employees aren't there for much time either. The company hires several interns but rarely keeps any. Please avoid this company. Their pr strategies and techniques are old fashion and outdated. Your better run not walk from this company! Don't let me even get started on te CEO. What a sham!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone and start over, with a new name and CEO.
