    I worked at Apogee Results full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I came to Apogee from another company, and thought I already *knew* SEO. Boy was I in for an education. Between the combination of my world-class teammates and our solid clients, I am 400% better and more knowledgeable than I was when I arrived at Apogee. Compensation competitive, and CEO actually helped me get a far better offer from the firm I recently joined when I told him I was looking!

    Cons

    Management should be firmer -- they extend too much trust and are slower than they should be to "weed the garden" when they make the occasional wrong hiring decision. Also, if you live in S. Austin the Arbor-area offices can be a challenge

    Advice to Management

    See cons above.

    Pros

    The team is awesome, everyone is super friendly and helpful if needed.
    You'll learn a lot if you want to.
    Plenty of room to submit your own ideas, approaches, and experience.
    Your opinions are valued.
    The company stands up for their employees if needed.
    The quality of work is more important than the quantity.
    The communication is authentic and open, no slowing hierarchies.

    Cons

    The office could be nicer, but they're working on that.
    If you lack initiative, you might not be the best fit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! :)

    Cons

    Office isn't the best, but whatever tech you need the company will provide.

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

    Pros

    Super flexible work environment - if you need to take the day off for doctors appointments, vet stuff, personal things, etc. it is incredibly easy to do so.

    There is little to no micromanagement within the organization and the work culture is fun and friendly!

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a leadership gap - our CEO is amazing and speaks at events, conferences, and is a thought leader in the industry. That said, sometimes internally leadership items fall to the wayside and the services team gets caught playing catch up as a result.

    "Good People and You'll Gain a Ton of Knowledge"

    I have been working at Apogee Results full-time

    Pros

    This is from an SEO perspective:

    You’re going to gain a lot of SEO knowledge/experience working at Apogee.

    I was blessed enough to learn from some very talented SEOs while working at Apogee Results). This agency breeds awesome talent (SEO alumni have been Heads of SEO at large companies like Uber/HomeAway, as well as other enterprise level websites).

    Additionally, you will be exposed to websites with different nuisances and problems. This experience will expedite your SEO knowledge and skillset quickly. If you are looking to learn, be surrounded by talented people, and put in work, Apogee is a great environment.

    There’s opportunity to implement new ideas and procedures.

    Good team chemistry

    Cons

    If you aren’t willing to put in work, and figure things out you probably won’t be a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    As mentioned in a previous review, continued focus on high quality work, communication, organizational workflows, and attracting the right people are key.

    Pros

    Great group of people here, everyone works hard and does things the right way. Management expects hard work but gives plenty of autonomy. This is a great place to learn about a wide degree of companies and industries, but you really have to know your stuff. Don't apply and come in here with limited experience and try to pass it off as true experience. I am frankly a bit shocked by some of the comments I have seen here. Some disgruntled ex-employees I assume, but this is a good place to work with smart people and interesting clients.

    Cons

    The office needs an upgrade

    Pros

    - Working with a group of people who are as passionate as they are skilled at what they do
    - Learning from Bill Leake's years of experience as a successful thought-leader in the field
    - Diverse clientbase leads to plentiful opportunity
    - Very relaxed, friendly environment

    Cons

    There are negatives that arise from companies experiencing growing pains in terms of organization, communication, and individual bandwidth - as Apogee grows & develops, those issues are abating.

    Advice to Management

    Things are trending in the right direction - continued focus on high quality work, communication, organizational workflows, and above all, attracting the right people will lead to Apogee's continued success.

    I worked at Apogee Results full-time

    Pros

    - You work among brilliant minds, people are good at what they do, as well as passionate
    - Diverse clientele

    Cons

    - Negative office culture, although relaxed and casual. You work (usually late) and go home. There's a 99% chance that you'll work through lunch or you won't take a lunch break at all
    - Although you work among brilliant minds, people are too busy to train or teach you anything
    - Sexist office environment - very discouraging!

    Advice to Management

    Work on creating a work culture that will make people want to work for you! Value your employees and get more involved in day-to-day activities

    I worked at Apogee Results full-time

    Pros

    Zero! I quit after my first payroll check bounced on top of being the wrong amount to boot! I really am serious. Who cares seemed like everyone was crazy there!

    Cons

    See above^^^ Honestly I read these reviews and can honestly say the things I saw in the short amount of time there... Everything must be sooo true!

    Advice to Management

    I don't have anything as I never really received the full truth or back pay that was owed during the three weeks I spent there.
