    J'ai travaillé chez APCO Worldwide à moins d'un an

    Avantages

    - Clients intéressants, flexibilité dans le choix des dossiers, intellectuellement très intéressant - Une bonne opportunité d'emploi et un tremplin pour rejoindre des entreprises - Des locaux pensés pour les salariés, avec une cuisine, un baby-foot, etc.

    Inconvénients

    - Une charge de travail importante mais des collaborateurs juniors pas toujours valorisés - Une ambiance pas toujours bienveillante (mais cela doit évoluer en fonction des équipes étant donné le fort turnover)

    Conseils à la direction

    - Une meilleure écoute des salariés pour améliorer le management et la répartition de la charge de travail

    Avantages

    APCO boasts a diverse portfolio of clients for both long- and short-term projects, which opens a lot of opportunities to learn different industries and work with a lot of people. The "entrepreneurial" culture rings true, but what that really means is that you're on your own to fight your way through office politics. Great place to cut your teeth at advocating for yourself, working under constant organizational... change, and learning to trust very few people. Once you put in a few years and earn the trust of those who matter, work/life balance is manageable due to being so independent and being able to create your own schedule. Arrive at 10am, leave at 5pm, or go on a trip and "work from home"... as long as the work is getting done, no one will ask questions. Compensation is reasonable if you're an aggressive negotiator or have a manager who does the same.

    Inconvénients

    The office politics are beyond repair. Nepotism has led to a culture of cuddling up to senior leaders who pull weight politically & fending for yourself, sometimes at the expense of others. Management may claim to have your best interest in mind, but they're all just out for themselves, too. Must have a thick skin and be willing to tolerate a lot of BS to be successful. Constant organizational change and waves... of departures leave little stability and isolate true talent. The office is very cliquey, so it feels like being thrown back into high school, choosing which table to sit at in the lunchroom. Choose wrong, and you're doomed.

    Conseils à la direction

    Take a good, hard look at the culture you're building. Your junior staff is overworked and underpaid, your mid-level staff is fighting for resources and for the attention & praise they need to be promoted, and your senior staff is more focused on their own success than ensuring the people under them are being supported, all while protecting the individuals they favor and overlooking others who are genuinely... talented. The ability to navigate the APCO political web outweighs the skills needed to manage clients properly & produce high-quality work.

    Avantages

    APCO was a sweet place to work. Fun and creative people all around and you could contribute is so many ways. Good travel, out of the box thinking, interesting issues and clients. Also quite international. Once there was energy here, now is sad and grim.

    Inconvénients

    APCO has lost its mojo. At first, it happened slowly and then it happened suddenly, gone in a burst of wind — and no one can bring it back. The thrill is gone Margery, just look around. Your well-meaning lieutenants — from the CEO to the COO to HR and Accounting — lack any purpose or spark or leadership. Their like dull, loyal functionaries and why? A little $$, I guess. Sad, but thats what its all about here.... Its not about the people and no one sees that this path is a sure way to lose even more $$. Certainly not the hapless HR group. As warm as a witch in December they are even less approachable than Accounting and less competent — no easy thang considering that Accounting cant get invoices out the door correctly and on time. One *shivers* to think about the accuracy of the actual financials. *actual shivers, yo, full bodied shivers* And it’s not just that HRs policies are arbitrary — they don’t even have any policies. There a widespread belief that their utter incompetence creates an environment that favoritism and bias flourishes without restraint. Very often, the loyal but incompetent flacks rise and everyone else falls. HR just goes along with this, backing any view if it comes from the higher ups. Spineless. Pathetic. So outta step. And it goes on and on and on.

    Conseils à la direction

    The place is hopeless because the people in the most senior roles compare so poorly to the ones that came before them. Any body that was strong became a threat to the top and they got rid of them. A drastic reduction in the quality of talent. The GR team is basically non existent. Healthcare is a shadow of its former self. There is no common purpose or goal. They move people around geographies in ways that make no... sense. And no one is held to account for so so so many stupid decisions and bad results + the leadership is especially unaccountable. No shocker there. Accounting constantly makes serious errors. In accounting everything they do is wrong or incomplete or late and worse. It’s a joke. The troubling thing is that there r no corrective actions. No decent billing no collections no cash mgmt no system or controls especially no controls. The accounting team is a frantic & nervous mess that is actually worse today than a year ago. Goals unmet, system installation a disaster chronic problems between the regions. No one believes the company is on a path to decent profits and even the profits they tout are highly questionable. Some think they record incomes in that seem questionable just to meet IRS guidelines. Spinners gonna spin. HR see above. The compensation system is totally unfair and arbitrary. Part of this is that the most senior leadership feel entitled to all the money and just look out for themselves. HR plays games with the numbers to fit the scheme they want. They think ppl are stupid. They say there no reduction in force but there is — they do it quietly but everybody know. Whos in charge? Is it the founder? Her son? The CEO? No one knows, it utterly confusing and they all avoid responsibility. Its him, no its her. It is all of them!!!
