    Pros

    The people! Everyone at APCO is open-minded, compassionate, and cares deeply about their work. Great visibility and access to sr. Managers, directors- even as an intern. You are truly made to feel like you are a part of the family.

    Cons

    If you’re looking for a structured, timed career progression path- probably not the best fit. There are several roles and divisions you can move into, so there isn’t a set track for career progression for each role (could actually be a positive for many!)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage and engage your interns! They will never forget it, and forever be a champion of the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at APCO Worldwide for more than 5 years

    Pros

    APCO is a huge, global communications agency with offices all ove -r the world, and every office has its own distinct flavor in terms of work experience, management-employee relations, etc. My review is based on my experience in one of its offices. The pros are - Very interesting clients - A fast-paced, learning environment - A good place to begin your career and advance up to the mid manager level -... Overall, friendly colleagues (though a few rotten apples manage to spoil things)

    Cons

    - There is a high degree of favoritism. - Lack of healthy communication between the management and staff. - A very political environment, which takes its toll on productivity and creativity. - A high pressure environment. Long work hours with little regard to work-life balance. - Company seldom refuses clients. This means APCO bends over backwards to please even its more difficult clients, mounting immense... pressure on the client servicing team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your people first. Get to know them as living, breathing people. Recognize that everyone is different, and bring different values to the table. Do this, and the rest will follow.
