    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at APCO Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Senior staff are some of the best in the business -Good industry reputation -Interesting projects and client work

    Cons

    -Low pay for the industry -High turnover as junior staff get their experience and leave to go to competitors who pay a livable wage -Low morale amongst employees -Long hours, no overtime pay, no bonuses, no appreciation from senior staff -No corporate culture (perhaps due to such high turnover)- resembles the low points of "Devil wears Prada" if you're an intern or junior staffer. -Very few people progress with... this company

    Advice to Management

    Show greater appreciation to junior staff and pay them accordingly. The junior staff are the worker bees and foundation to this company- without them you can't function. You lose too much great talent because they feel unappreciated, overworked, and underpaid. They go elsewhere, not because they don't like APCO but because they get treated better and have more opportunities elsewhere. There is a big feeling of... "US" and "THEM" which should be addressed.
