    I have been working at Apex Systems full-time

    Pros

    The people here were great to work with. Young and fun atmosphere and for the most part it's a work hard/play hard environment. Happy hours, company parties etc are a great bonus when working here.

    Cons

    They always claim they want to know about your career goals and want to help you get there, however I never felt like they truly did. If you shine in one area, they try to keep you there. Things are very political as well. After having left here, I also realized how bad the salary + commission plan is compared to other staffing agencies. If you are looking to make good money, definitely not the place for you. There are so many other agencies that pay a much higher base salary + commission percentage.

    Advice to Management

    Need to provide better training for the recruiters coming in with no experience. Don't just say you want to help your employees achieve their career goals, do it and show that you care. Money isn't always everything but having a supportive manager who listens is important.

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

    Pros

    Its a job. It pays (on the months that you dont have 2 or more weeks without work). Thats about it really. The "expense reimbursment" does get your money back to you eventually, and the management is OK if you catch them on a good day. The travel is fun if you get lucky enough to land one of the coveted spots overseas for a few weeks.

    Cons

    Thw work isnt steady, and even on a good month its not great. You have to spend half your paycheck on food and gas that they claim will be reimbursed, but you usually have to wait 2-3 months to see it. No paid holidays or vacation, or even an offer of medical / dental / 401k benefits. Good entry level job, but not really anywhere to go from there (no way to advance in the company from this position). A LOT of turnover of technicians, most only last a few months because of the lack of work / low pay / no benefits / stress of being 100% travel.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling needs a lot of help. Consistant work is necessary if you want people to stay on longer than a few months.
