    I worked at API Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    33 days holiday (including bank hols),
    13:30 finish on Fridays,
    The job is interesting,
    I was able to learn a lot in my time there.

    Cons

    Manipulative managers,
    Bullying and blame culture,
    HR too afraid to help employees,
    Policies are meaningless as they are full of contradictions, poor wording is used to make it possible for the employer to screw over the employee,
    Poor location for anyone not from Norfolk,
    Aging workforce makes socialising with colleagues out side of work difficult

    Advice to Management

    The management structure needs to be looked at closely - middle managers are 'YES MEN' that are hired by the senior management, who are 'YES MEN' to their superiors, and so nothing changes.
    Middle managers, manage with bullying tactics, and their managers bully them. The staff are demotivated and miserable because of it - this needs to change!
    The policies also need to be tightened up so that everyone knows where they stand, and no one ends up hurt/ disappointed/ screwed over

    "Cursed by M&A"

    Doesn't Recommend
    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.
