Pros

Very people orientated company that tries to allow the individuals to participate in the growth and direction of the company. It does all it can to try and assure the profit is shared by bonus or raises when it can. Very little direct turn over due to employee dissatisfaction and when there is a required down sizing due to contract turn over, the employees want to come back as soon as they can. The people who do work there are very friendly and diverse from various ethnic groups and experience levels in the industry which helps bind the organizations closeness in helping develop its future as well as helping the employee in developing his or hers. The owner is working on developing the personnel and organization to think and work toward securing Apex for the next 100 years through a training and development program called "Project Century". It is to set the tone and mind set for the next 3 future generations of employees. They are also developing new ideas and thoughts of looking into the future of IT Service delivery and developing tools and ideas toward the future of that business.

Cons

Growth is currently to dependent on on major customer and the development of new customer base is a slow process. No large capital source to help it grow and develop quicker thus the improvements are a bit long in coming but they do come. It tries to give good benefits and does a good job with the resource it has but as a small company it is hard to compete with larger organizations.

Advice to Management

Continue to work on the growth of the business with new customers and continue to look for and add great people to become "Apexians".

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, no micromanagement. Treats employees well. Good benefits such as medical, dental, etc., They even pay for spouse's medical, which is rare in this economy.

    Cons

    Very confused management style. Not too certain on their corporate strategy. The company seems to have lost its core competency and is struggling to stay alive.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what your core competency is before the time runs out. I would suggest either really drive down cost and ramp efficiency, or invest in resources and broaden their skill sets.

    I worked at Apex Computer Systems as a contractor

    Pros

    If you're contract you get flexible hours and (sometimes) half-decent pay. The people are nice and while on the job you might even learn a thing or two.

    Cons

    This is a decent place to start out, but don't get complacent and don't stay for longer than a year if you can. This is just my experience, but after being forced to move on (loss of contract with edison), I realized I felt a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    More steady direction. Contractors need a more formal training process. We don't get welcome packets or anything. Some basic info would be nice so that each contractor you hire isn't starting a 20+ email chain.
