Former Contractor - Systems Engineer in South Milwaukee, WI

I worked at Apex Systems as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good pay, sharp personnel, well organized, regular weekly teleconference calls to report successes, issues that occurred, and to field possible suggestions by any of the team.

Cons

Long hours, with heavily loaded weekends, but that was understood up front due to the nature of the job - get everything installed, updated, and successfully backed up as soon as possible, then move on to the next batch.

    I worked at Apex Systems as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stable work environment as far as contract work goes

    Cons

    Flipping burgers at McDonald's probably pays more than Help Desk work through these folks

    Advice to Management

    Make salaries competitive in today's world. I spent a year being the laughing stock of the IT world working for you folks and the name APEX Systems now fills any Help Desk technicians heart with nameless dread. No one wants to work for you and you are taking advantage of the bad economy by raping the common man of money he should get by working for you. Then you LIE about it saying that it is the client who sets the price. The client agrees with how much they are going to pay YOU but YOU set the price for US. Working IT HelpDesk I was making $11 an hour for your folks when everybody else in my state was earning $13/hr and up for entry level. Shame on you. I will NEVER take another contract from you again. EVER.

    I worked at Apex Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A large player in the IT staffing industry. A lot of opportunity to make money. If you played College sports or attended a well known University or College you could fit in here. If you're young, 30 or under you might like the culture.

    Cons

    The sales training program, the immature behavior of co-workers, it's not a sales organization it's a popularity contest. If you didn't play sports in College or attend a named University then the culture doesn't treat you the same way as those that did play sports or a University. Management is very strict and unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for you. Whatever your doing in the future is your business and good luck with that.
