    I have been working at Applied Predictive Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can’t imagine a better community of people to work with. Everyone is intelligent and driven while still remaining humble, supportive, and team-oriented. The company culture is very strong - lots of free food, fun events, etc. I feel fortunate that I get to work alongside my friends.

    I experience a lot of variety in my day-to-day work across multiple client teams, internal data team projects, and recruiting efforts (amongst other things).

    My favorite part about APT is the emphasis placed on the career review process. I appreciate that I receive actionable feedback every six months - I always have a clear idea of where I stand and what I can do to improve.

    Cons

    Being staffed on many teams at once - on busy weeks, this can lead to longer hours & lots of juggling priorities.

    I have been working at Applied Predictive Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with at APT. Everyone is extremely smart and hard working, yet humble and inclusive. That is not a combination found in many places. I love the teams I work with and the challenging projects we work on together.

    Since APT is a small-medium sized company, young people are given a ton of ownership early on. This can be extremely overwhelming, but equally as rewarding. My advisers and mentors are always challenging me to grow professionally, and my teammates help keep each other accountable with both personal and professional goals.

    Other perks, the office always has free food and we have so many exciting events going on! (For example, my social "house" - similar to Harry Potter houses - is having an ice cream social today!) I love the young, relaxed, and fun culture.

    Pay is competitive... especially if you're fresh out of college with minimal skill sets :)

    Cons

    The MasterCard acquisition has brought with it some changes to our benefits. Healthcare offer got worse, and the way we manage expenses has gotten more stringent.

    Work life balance for client services is tough... I work in product development where the work life balance is much more manageable

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Applied Predictive Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at APT for a little over 3 years. Some of my favorite things about working at APT include:

    - Awesome people: Many people at APT are friends both inside and outside of the office. It's great to be excited to come to work every day and know you will be with great people who are also extremely intelligent.
    - Opportunity to find your niche: While there is always the expectation that you give it your all towards your actual role, APT also offers the opportunity for every employee to find the things that excite them most and get involved there (examples include helping to conduct analytic investigations, being involved in campus recruiting and interviewing, etc.)
    - Chances for ownership: People with all levels of seniority can own features and projects of varying sizes.

    Cons

    While it varies by role, everyone at APT has a lot on their plate. This is great for growing in your career, but can also lead to a struggle in work-life balance.

    I have been working at Applied Predictive Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The organization is extremely flat - I've only been here for 1 year, but I work directly with people who have been here for 6 years, people who just started, etc.
    - Employees receive frequent and in-depth feedback on strengths and opportunities for career growth
    - The culture is fantastic - we have plenty of team and company events (like Top Golf, company-wide Fifa tournaments, and even indoor skydiving), the office is collaborative and awesome (with kitchens on every floor, free meals every week, and game rooms in the office), etc.
    - There's a ton of flexibility (you can definitely choose your own hours, there's plenty of opportunities to switch between teams to broaden your experiences, etc.)

    Cons

    Can't really think of any cons to mention.

    I worked at Applied Predictive Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Product development has a good culture. When issues are identified with some policy or process, people take ownership and actively try to improve them.
    -People care about their work but also their coworkers. There's a collegial but not overbearing social environment.
    -for a B2B company of this size, there is a broad spectrum of engineering problems available to work on and it's easy to move between teams

    Cons

    -Compensation and benefits are good for the market, but less than what is available in California / NYC / Seattle with a comparable cost of living.

    Cons

    The company is starting to grow rapidly, which means there will be challenges with keeping the company culture intact, although I think the company is aware of this and is taking the right steps towards ensuring this isn't an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to get feedback from employees so that you can keep track of how the company is evolving as it grows. Put in place systems that allow for the company to keep its fun, collaborative, and innovative culture even as the company grows.
