    I have been working at Apogee Enterprises full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great culture and values along with all sorts of perks and benefits. The ESPP and 401(K) are great, there is tuition reimbursement, decent PTO, great medical, dental, LTD/STD, etc. The benefits are some of the best in the region. There is good mobility within the company and its business units, and positions are advertised internally before they go external. Bonuses are quite good.

    Cons

    There are some communications and cooperation issue between departments and teams. It's not bad, but it's far from perfect. Salary increases within the same job title can be disappointing. Quality of managers does very between departments, so not everyone will wind up happy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep ensuring that teams and departments don't become silos.

    I worked at Apogee Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some good managers, co-workers. You'll never be bored.

    Cons

    Apogee is ran like an underfunded, understaffed MSP. You have over 10 child companies to support, with different budgets, different management, different architectures, different requirements, different developers, and different applications. However, all do pretty much the same thing (make glass coatings), and have the same IT state (old). It's constant fire fighting. If you do get money to upgrade, it's a fight to get...

    Advice to Management

    IT is what runs the company. Set standards across all companies. Overspend in IT to catch up. Eventually, the constant fire fighting will slow.
