    Rat an das Management

    You have hired well in the last year, look after those stars before they get poached. This includes consultants and finance.

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei APCO Worldwide gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The APCO office culture is very "flat" and gives its junior staff the opportunity to grow and learn with a fairly quick promotion cycle. Compared to other agencies, the junior staff has a decent amount of responsibility. The people that work here are smart and driven, and generally are nice enough. The work is also interesting - however NY is mainly corporate comms with little public affairs (despite APCOs reputation...

    Kontras

    APCO works its staff to the ground and expects its employees to be available 24/7. They also pay terribly given hours the staff give to their jobs. The result is little work/life balance and a lot of tears over the grueling work. They also have a major staffing issue and teams are often staffed incorrectly.

    Rat an das Management

    Start focusing more on your employees, their happiness, the type of work they want to be on, and improve organizational and staffing structure.

    Ich habe für mehr als 8 Jahre bei APCO Worldwide gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Smart people, good reputation in some global markets. Several long-time clients. Strong expertise in public affairs in Europe and the Middle East.

    Kontras

    Leadership is not making good choices on business expansion, lack of investment in digital capabilities, decline in creative work, and lack of importance placed on retention of key senior staff. Financial growth has been stagnant for the last decade. Lots of turnover across all levels in the last few years and important senior people leaving in the US. CEO is in Europe and seems detached from global staff.

    Rat an das Management

    Recognize why people hire APCO - for senior staff expertise and overall quality of work, for not having the retail tactical capabilities every agency hires or being in every market. Be smaller but better, Be nicer to people and more loyal. Be honest.

      Pros

      Great people, nice location, always something to do, organized workforce/distribution of work

      Once they know you're on your way out they barely give you anything to do, sometimes overestimated knowledge of work resources

      Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei APCO Worldwide (Vollzeit)

      Pros

      Very few pros, unfortunately. At first, there was a lot to learn and the clients can be challenging. But the work is so shady and sketchy that you feel dirty getting close to it. The place can be an eye opener — in how to manipulate and distort reality. That’s a positive, right?

      Kontras

      APCO is slowly but unmistakably sinking deeper and deeper. No leadership, no morals, no money. Their only goal, the only reason they exist, is for the financial gain of the so-called leadership. And it doesn’t matter where the money comes from. Despots, abusers of human rights, anti-gay regimes, despicable oligarchs — they’ll happily take money from ANYone. They are so completely out of touch with the times. They have...

      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*

      Kontras

      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.
