Pros
  • Culture - Apex embodies the work hard/play hard mentality (in 14 reviews)

  • They show an interest in their consultant work/life balance (in 13 reviews)

Cons
  • Luckily if you email them, and notify your account manager they will pull strings to get you paid on time (in 33 reviews)

  • Health insurance benefits are expensive but I guess it's a good thing that they at least offer it (in 24 reviews)

    I have been working at Apex Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hired on full time, good pay, overtime, great communication from them. Not really understanding all the negative comments on here about them. Have state Medicaid so didn't need the benefits. Understand it's a temporary position with option for the contract company to hire me on which will happen when I'm done. Honestly the best IT PLACEMENT company I have ever had the pleasure of working with. No 1099 either and 50 cents per mile reimbursement!

    Cons

    Honestly none on my end minus the fact that no raises are involved. Understand their position though in this is "contract work" and possible placement if said company wishes to bring you on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and thank you for your help.

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

    Pros

    Pay is fine. They offer 401k and other benefits.

    Cons

    Absolutely no paid days off, not even for holidays and they will not even consider it. Insurance is expensive and pretty worthless. I'd do better if they didn't offer it and could go through the exchange.

    Advice to Management

    At least give some paid holidays off. It is fine to have a policy of no paid days off if you only have short term contracts, but longer term contracts should have at least paid holidays. Other contracting companies do provide it. Had I known you did not offer this when I accepted the position through you, I would have talked to one or more of the other contracting companies calling me for the same position. It is my fault for not checking, but had I to do over again, I wouldn't even have talked to you. Also, let your contractors know when the person they report to leaves the company and their reports to per changes.

    Pros

    My recruiters are amazing and help me with anything that I need. Fairly good online HR and time submission websites.

    Cons

    I am on a team and we are all from different recruiting companies and even though I do the most technical work I get paid the least because of Apex and how they calculate salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Re-work pay structure
