    I have been working at Aptus Health full-time

    Pros

    As an individual that has worked for Aptus Health from way back when it wasn't Aptus Health yet, I feel compelled to defend my company in light of the negative glassdoor review notifications that show up in my inbox.

    AH has grown up tremendously in the last three years. We have gone from a company that, essentially, was an email vendor to a global, multi-audience, multi-channel, innovative organization with an interesting value proposition for customers. This would not have been possible without the perseverance and vision of our "new" management team.

    This is now an organization where you feel free to speak your mind about the direction of the business and are actually heard, even if change does sometimes feel slow to take effect.

    While everyone at this organization works tremendously hard it is simultaneously an environment where you are encouraged to ensure that your personal life is attended to.

    Cons

    Change is sometimes slow to take effect.

    Career paths and requirements for promotions are not well defined. Individual managers should be provided with guidelines and be proactive about recognizing employees that are performing beyond their current title.

    Pros

    There are no pros to what has happened over the last 2 years since leadership change that brought in people who have no idea on how to motivate or execute

    Cons

    A very negative environment. The CEO is way over his head. No relationships with customers. Has no idea how to engage employees and is locked in his office whenever he is there. Merck has no idea on what is going on and I am glad to be out of this environment. Rather than asking people to post positive reviews on Glassdoor why not address the problems?

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your losses and replace management with more competent and capable leaders

    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.

    Pros

    There was a good work/life balance, but this will most likely end when the company moves its corporate office to Boston

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism in upper management. Everyone is hiring a “friend” they used to work with. The company isn’t making money but overpays management and sales team with excessive salaries, commissions and bonuses. No growth opportunities, no transparency and no employee empowerment. I regret leaving my very stable job to come to a company I thought was cool and innovative but it is just a facade.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t move the corporate office because it’s more convenient for the officers. Please consider you other 80 employees who may already have a tough commute.

    The culture would get better if the layoffs stopped and instead employees were trained, mentored, empowered and disciplined. Leadership doesn’t discipline, they just layoff employees in order to deal with bad behavior.

    Listen to you subject matter experts instead of assuming you know better. Don’t indulge bad behavior.

    Be transparent with your new hires regarding problems and tell them you plan on moving the corporate office.

    Don’t lay someone off because you don’t “like” them. Stop playing favorites.

    A lot of time to interview for a new job.

    Cons

    Worst CEO I have ever worked with.
    Plummeting revenue.
    Even hard to sell Merck on using our services.

    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.
