I worked at Aptima full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great culture and values. Great company to learn new stuff. Although it has a formal hierarchical organization, most employees can manage projects and therefore in reality it provides a matrix organization.

The company is very well managed and it has the right amount of structured processes.

Cons

Although there are many opportunities to grow internally, real internal promotions are hard. From the perspective of an individual this can be see as a con, but is a reflection of the low employee rotation, meaning that employees are happy and not looking to move elsewhere.
