    I worked at APP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I got to park in frount of the building instead of across the street.

    Cons

    No Senior Management accountaility. Will not take the considerations of their employees to improve production. I dont understand how they stay in business.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourselves accountable for your own mistakes instead of letting others take the fall. Your culture MUST change for success. I'am glad to call myself a former employee.

    I have been working at APP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good office location. Teams that work on projects are good. Reasonable variation of Projects. Office is young average age.

    Cons

    Poor leaderships from senior management. Only interested in getting their pound of flesh from people. Serious lack of communication, often given 24 hours notice before being shifted on to different projects. Hiring police is to hire graduates, get their use out of them and let move on. There is constantly people leaving. Senior management expectation is you should be there 24/7 and question commitment when you have other responsibilities. Offer minimum vacation allowance and minimum Super, APP feel they are doing you a favour in hiring you!

    Advice to Management

    1.Invest in keeping people
    2.Look in to any sort of benefits structure. i.e incentives to bring in new customer/work.
    3.Understand markets and don't have such a stubbed attitude that everyone should adopt to your way of working
    4. Find some Values
