I have been working at APA full-time (More than a year)
The benefits, the kindness and accommodation of the people, the work ethic - there's nothing NOT to love.
Current self-evaluation backlash and layoffs have created an aura of poor staff morale. However, management and APA has been open and accommodating to all staff. Those who were laid off received substantial severance packages.
Advice to Management
360 reviews would do really well here, as APA is reluctant to give constructive feedback to managers, some of whom could really use it.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at APA.
The online application was very creative, and asked a lot of questions to get a who the interviewee is. It really made me think. The in person interviews were mostly a series of pre-planned questions so that they could fairly evaluate each person. The questions were interesting, but this did leave little time for any back and forth. Overall, I found it fun, though a bit nerve-racking because they were trying to be as deadpan as possible.
