    Geen mening over directeur

    Ik heb gewerkt bij APCO Worldwide voor minder dan een jaar

    Pluspunten

    - 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.

    Minpunten

    - 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)

    Advies aan management

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

    Pluspunten

    Some clients are interesting to work on (at least on paper) As a junior it might be a good start to learn how to work in shark environments for the future

    Minpunten

    Numbers, numbers, numbers... Management cares only about money and nothing else. Given the high turnover rate, you're just a cog in the machine, easily replaceable. The ultimate goal in any project is to retain the client (for the money) and not actually achieve the final success on their behalf, so that's extremely demotivating. The focus is completely on the process and not the outcome (again, for the money). ...

    Variety of work Get to see the reality of PR and lobbying world

    Minpunten

    Senior management has little knowledge of the substance of the clients' issues, lack credibility, although quite good at hiding their ignorance Overworked and exploited juniors

    Advies aan management

    If you want the juniors to be loyal to you, treat them with more respect

    Pluspunten

    Great people, great global network, some of the most interesting briefs in political communications, issues and reputation management.

    Minpunten

    Some loss of values and culture that made the company a real powerhouse. Long hours, but typical of consulting.

    Advies aan management

    Get the company refocused on what made it great...strong values, strong culture, great team-work and away from narrow "local" interests. Invest in the best talent already there and aggressively recruit the best from outside.

    Pluspunten

    All the mid to low entry level staff are stuck there with you. Commiseration is high.

    Minpunten

    I don't even know where to start. Probably with the fact that the management is completely useless. There is a LOT of trash talking within the office environment which brings the morale way down. Turnover wise: lots of layoffs. People are scared when the HR is making rounds in the office because no one knows who will get laid off next. I was working there for just over a year and 10+ people either left or were laid off....

    Great talents, interesting and fun people I met. Flexiblity on working in oversea offices. Team mostly with international mindset and wanting to *do the right things*

    Minpunten

    The Pros above fully disappeared after changed of certain backoffice leader in China/Asia. Everything became very mainland style New leaders enjoy sweet talk from her team Only butt kissing talents get to stay n grow A friendly environment became a very political office. Everybody wants to get a piece of cake from the mess. New hires in recent months for backoffice are real under qualified. Leader and HR overly protected...

    Please spend time to look at your Asia offices. The overpowered given to certain China managements will damage the name of Best Place to Work award to APCO. APCO Asia, is not only APCO China. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, if you want to maintain talents, please do reaccess the integrity of your China senior teammates.

      Department head used to be knowledgeable for the region and company business. Managers level able to work with their sleeves rolled up. Project team n back office were full of talents and good people People respected people like a human being.

      Minpunten

      Things changed around 6 months ago Company hired very China local department head. Department is full of politics and most members are trying to get benefit from this mess. New hires are good at honey talk but nothing else. Favored individual with limited knowledge can easily be loved with their chattering skills. People unwilling to take responsibility, but only good at replying others by saying 'on behalf of xxx'...

      HI Apco Management from US, Please do reaccess your use of people in Asia especially in China. The professionalism and integrity of the people you hire do great affect the office morale. You do want to have people can work with their hands and brains, from upper to middle to junior level. Not just only by talk, talk and talk. Individuals hard working forced to resign due to being infavor is not what a well reputation...

      Ik voltijd gewerkt bij APCO Worldwide voor meer dan 1 jaar

      Pluspunten

      - Good exposure to excellent clients and interesting projects - Very smart colleagues and a positive work environment - Access to learn new things-- the UAE team was growing in capabilities, meant that you could walk up to most people and ask them to explain a new skill

      Minpunten

      - Very demanding clients meant that work-life balance was a challenge - Long hours with high expectations for excellence within the company itself

      Advies aan management

      Senior management could manage expectations with clients better. The lay of the land in the UAE was that anything a key client said was the way to go, and this is not necessarily the case-- especially if it impacts the team badly.
