    Pros

    Interesting work, great co-workers. Work-life balance is important to everyone.

    They had to lay off many people late 2008.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees about the state of the company. Everything was so secret.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Apex IT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Project work is usually pretty good. Trying to break into new markets, new products. Willing to leave the old technology behind.

    Cons

    Very little effort to enable consultants to learn from one another. No company-wide meetings for the past few years. No sense of community, especially within the delivery organization.
    Minimal promotion opportunity. Nearly everybody has a Senior Consultant title.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your consultants, define additional titles, and promote those who excel.

    Pros

    Great group of people, great benefits, great exposure to the real world

    Cons

    Some of management can be very difficult to work with and it is difficult to schedule days off but overall great team

    Advice to Management

    should listen more to your people, even the entry level folks as they are the only ones on the ground floor.
