Apex knows how to hide disfunction within the final product.

Pros

Apex has aquired an amazing asset in the regional managers' talents and ability to produce high quality project reports.

Cons

Poor execution of strategy. Terrible employee engagement. Not enough oversight of regional projects by corporate management. If regional revenues and costs hit expectations, there is not a deep dive into product performance or relationship between employees and managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Apex began making some changes before I left. These included a complete changeover of the employee anual review policy. Further efforts should incentivize regional managers to help promote employees. Audit regional managers ability to keep employees certified in a timely maner. Ensure regional managers are current in needed technical skills which may have lapsed (i.e. if company has one engineer, make sure that they can still DESIGN, not just BUILD) a remediation system).

    Pros

    Good place for a first job; a stepping stone to get some experience before moving on. A good opportunity for someone right out of college.

    Cons

    Poor management style. Saturated with middle management-types with no room for upward mobility. And "Old Boys" club with low energy.
