    I worked at APL full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The 401k lump sum is nice

    Cons

    Absolutely the most toxic work environment I’ve ever worked in. I received threatening and abusive emails overnight and weekends. No action was ever taken. In fact my manager was usually the first to jam the knife in my back. Management expects you to be on call 24/7 due to cutbacks. At least four jobs were folded into my job due to those cutbacks. Little to no raises for various reasons. Archaic systems. Racist management. Incompetence is encouraged. So much redundancy with the French corporate parent.
