Great mentoring and development
Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 16, 2016
You will get tossed right in and be expected to contribute from day 1. There is a ton of thought and effort toward mentoring, management, and development. If you approach people with enthusiasm and demonstrate that you want to be valuable, they will value you and go the extra mile for you. The culture is fast paced and can be intimidating at first b/c everyone here really cares about their work; it can seem pretty intense. that said everyone is really sweet and will offer help when asked.
Pros
emphasis on development
Cons
tough learning curve

IT Support Associate Consultant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJune 12, 2015
A typical day of work consisted during the first task in the mornings in monitoring and checking the network infrastructure and the reports from all the servers, firewalls, routers via web based console the APCO's core IT environment. Shortly after that going through all the tickets during the day before and work on the ones that requires highest priority.

I have learned project and administration IT assignments with highly outstanding result. My co-workers are highly well prepared and the hardest part of the job was to keep up with the face paced environment which I was able to perform very well.

The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely the big holidays celebrations and happy hours every Thursdays. Working with nice people that cares what you do for them and receive accomplishments for your good work.
Pros
free lunches, happy hours
Cons
short vacation, PTO

Fluid environment
Office Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJanuary 16, 2015
A small office which is part of a larger global PR Firm based out of Washington DC.
The Seattle office is very high energy with different personalities and creative levels.
Everyone here works as a team and in collaboration with each other.
A typical day at work is guaranteed to be un-typical!
I have leared how PR works, how to go above and beyond a clients
expectations. The hardest part of this job is to be called on to assist without the benefit of the full background which actually makes it the most enjoyable part of the job as it is required to think on one's feet, have the ability to figure things out and be confident in the decisions made.
Pros
flexible work schedule
