    Pros

    Aptus operates is a global digital marketing company ... great industry growth prospects. Aptus has turned around their business model and is seeing dynamic growth in key product areas. Management is consistently demonstrating industry knowledge and strategic thought, along with the discipline and willingness to create a great environment for employees.

    Cons

    Overcoming few remaining remnants of prior management

    Pros

    Company growth is solid and on an upward trajectory. Building brand awareness and gaining positive recognition in the marketplace. Successfully meeting company objectives - positive feedback to employees in the form of 100% bonus payout for 2017. Addressing technology issues - a lot of work to do it - but positive progress is being made.

    Cons

    Continued restructuring is bumpy and recent cuts not communicated well. Better communication will eliminate fear which results in some employee negativity.

    Advice to Management

    We are not a large company, don't treat it like one.

    Pros

    Great news - the company grew by over 15% in 2017 and was named the Most Innovative Multichannel Company in a respected industry survey (TGaS Advisors). All topline and bottomline targets were met and staff is very pleased to hear that company bonus requirements were achieved!

    Some new strategies in place. Getting rave reviews from clients in US and Europe for customer service, analytics, data transparency and ability to deliver. Nice momentum!

    Cons

    It appears that these advances are not being well understood by certain segments of staff (as some of the other reviews indicate). That's unfortunate to see.

    Advice to Management

    Company leaders/managers should continue to communicate, engage and collaborate. Make everyone feel connected and part of this growth.

    Pros

    2017 was a breakout year for a few key product lines within the Aptus Health family of offerings. These key products propelled us to beat 2017 objectives and will serve as growth drivers in 2018. The market is responding to our data driven approach to reach and engage Healthcare Providers and Healthcare Consumers. Strong growth signals.
    The company went through some growing pains but management has handled it in a positive and professional way over the past two years.
    Executive leadership is strong with a high business acumen.
    People are great!

    Cons

    Company lacks superior brand equity in the market place but has made great strides to improve our position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing ahead with growth objectives. Flawless execution of plan is key.

    I have been working at Aptus Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some good people who work hard.

    Cons

    Exodus from key positions at French location. Systematic elimination of all minorites and seniors on finance and accounting team in last month. Positions replaced one to one with younger whites. Defunct products that run on antiquated technologies. Office now nearly empty after multiple rounds of layoffs over past 1.5 years. Worst HR team I've encountered in my career. No career growth opportunities.

    I have been working at Aptus Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Frequent layoffs has resulted in a small company feel
    - CEO stays in his office so you rarely see him
    - Very reasonable work hours

    Cons

    - Losing customers faster than we are losing employees
    - No strategy
    - Low morale

    Advice to Management

    - Eventually you have to grow the top line to succeed. Focusing just on the bottom line will not work
    - Bring in people who know the industry
    - Acknowledge the work that people do

    Pros

    Earlier years very focused on both internal and external customers and innovation. Not the case any longer. There are no pros. This is not a company that thrives any longer.

    Cons

    Too much lack of focus and understanding around how to scale the business. Since the arrival of the new CEO there has been no clear strategy for growth and no culture that aligns to the value. Merck owns the company and unclear as to what they want to do with the business.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership has failed to establish a culture where you can win
