Neutral Outlook

I worked at Apex Companies, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Apex has aquired an amazing asset in the regional managers' talents and ability to produce high quality project reports.

Cons

Poor execution of strategy. Terrible employee engagement. Not enough oversight of regional projects by corporate management. If regional revenues and costs hit expectations, there is not a deep dive into product performance or relationship between employees and managers.

Advice to Management

Apex began making some changes before I left. These included a complete changeover of the employee anual review policy. Further efforts should incentivize regional managers to help promote employees. Audit regional managers ability to keep employees certified in a timely maner. Ensure regional managers are current in needed technical skills which may have lapsed (i.e. if company has one engineer, make sure that they can still DESIGN, not just BUILD) a remediation system).

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Apex Companies, LLC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Apex was a good environment until they were bought out and new administration came in.

    Cons

    They where very demanding and installed numerous tasks onto the shoulders of the project manager-estimator.

    Advice to Management

    spread out the work load or hire more people to assist

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Apex Companies, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like everyone I work with, from the CEO down to field staff. The culture in my office is that there is a work/life balance, and as long as you meet your goals, there isn't a lot of pressure to work more. People come to work refreshed, not burned out. Also, the company sees its talent as its biggest asset and goes the extra step to present career growth opportunities through tracking, feedback, collaboration, and training. If you are a self-starter, ambitious, industrious, a leader, entrepreneurial, etc., you will thrive in this company.

    Cons

    Quite frankly, the name. Too trite; up there with Acme, A-1, and AAA. Seriously, though, there isn't much to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep this company nimble, responsive, and competitive. Take care of your best staff and make the necessary investments in resources to realize the potential. Listen to what people are saying about ways to improve.
