    I worked at Apptis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management actually showed a real interest in the morale and professional growth of the employees.

    Cons

    The pay and benefits are competitive but the likelihood of raises or bonuses are slim.

    Advice to Management

    Reintroduce the yearly training program. The program allowed many of the techies to develop a friendly relationship which helped when remote assistance was necessary.

  4. "Too Top Heavy"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Apptis

      Pros

      Apptis is now owned by the overly large URS corp. The pro is that you always get paid, they do have decent benefits, as it is a stable company.

      Cons

      If you need individual attention for Healthcare or Payroll issues, this is not the place for you.

      Advice to Management

      Consider reducing paperwork and bureaucracy.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Apptis full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The pay was good. Enjoyed working with customers.

      Cons

      Promotions based on favoritism and outside of work affiliations versus training and proven ability to do job, resulting in hostile work environment.

      Advice to Management

      Off-site management needs extensive training in Government and Corporate Ethics and to be more closely monitored on adherence to such.

      Listen to management of your employees about their performance and issues.

      I worked at Apptis full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      As Apptis we had fantastic management, freedom to set our own priorities while striving for growth and always felt that Sr. Executives supported and invested in staff and had your back when difficult decisions were to be made. Great mix within the rank and file. Most employees carried their own weight and provided value to the organization. Then we were acquired by URS....

      Cons

      Once URS acquired Apptis the writing was on the wall that legacy Apptis staff's days were numbered. Incentive comp was eliminated, benefits were reduced and employee contributions for benefits increased substantially, bonuses were minimized without any communication. Middle and Sr. Management that were brought in as replacements were not qualified and had limited understanding of the business. URS does not understand...

      Advice to Management

      Remember that legacy Apptis personnel created the value in the company you chose to purchase. Stop protecting the legacy EG&G personnel and stop protecting the legacy URS personnel. Now that you've driven out most of the legacy Apptis personnel responsible for the success of the company how are you going to turn this one around? We'll be watching...

      I worked at Apptis full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Room to grow. They took care of their employees well. Good benefits and good opportunities to work independently and learn in your career.

      Cons

      A bit draconian when it comes to education reimbursements. I had to pay back a $1300 reimbursement after I left the company. The pay back was 8 months prior to my leaving, sort of childish.

      Advice to Management

      If you know ahead of time that a contract is going to end, try to find your employees another opportunity instead of just letting them go.

      I worked at Apptis

      Pros

      No Micromanaging Very good pay Great benefits Information shared freely Young workforce Felt like working at a financially secure start up

      Cons

      Not much personal interaction with senior leadership While information is available you may have to do some investigative work to locate

      Advice to Management

      Middle management is great keep empowering them. Make information more easily accessible. While I was paid very well I understand that this is not the case with several other positions. I would suggest bidding for higher contract amounts so you can offer every position across the board higher rates of compensation.
