Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Aggressive growing company that tries to do interesting manufacturing and technical things.

Cons

Unplanned, unorganized growth by M&A resulting in work place chaos. No communication except when pink slips are issued to reduce the expense side of their businesses. No due diligence examining capabilities, expenses, potential or skill sets beyond what can be sold to an investor group.

Advice to Management

Stop rolling the dice and consolidate the organization into some biz space the management team actually understands.

    I have been working at API Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The company runs leans so there are lots of ways to gain additional experience or responsibilities if you ask for them. There are lots of ways to make a positive impact if you are someone who is motivated to add skills and experience. Management cares about the employees and they work hard behind the scenes to do what they can to make the work environment better.

    Cons

    Business has been tough the past year or two in part due to the industry and in part due to business practices from past leadership. The new CEO and management team are taking the right steps to turn things around. It will take time so pay and benefits aren't as competitive to bigger companies.

    I have been working at API Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers
    Freedom to complete my work in my personal way
    Opportunity to learn without any "help or training" from management.

    Cons

    Previous company was acquired by api, and provided very little in way of support from upper management. Now in final weeks before they are closing down our location.

    Advice to Management

    When problems or issues arise, deal with it immediately and don't wait for it to become an even greater problem.
