    Pros

    -APT really cares about your happiness/growth as an employee. You get really great feedback in the career review cycle, with actionable takeaways.
    -In my experience, teams succeed together and care more about the success of the project at hand than individual recognition.
    -As a software engineer, you will get opportunities to work on important code that drives really important business decisions immediately. This is exciting. You will almost always feel that your work is important.
    -The benefits and compensation are great.
    -the office culture is really fun, and becoming more and more inclusive.

    Kontras

    -As the company grows, it's no longer true that you know almost everyone in product development. It felt more like a big group of friends when I first started. People are still friends now, but it's a lot more spread out since there are so many more engineers

    Rat an das Management

    - Continue to make career growth opportunities a core principle of management. It keeps talent around, and makes people happy.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Applied Predictive Technologies (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    I've worked at APT in Product Development for 2 years now, and absolutely love it. Pros:
    1. The company is growing quickly and has a very flat structure. These factors combined mean that you have a ton of opportunity to make an impact from very early on in your career.
    2. Career reviews are performed every 6 months and involve an in-depth process of capturing feedback from all peers that you've worked with. The cadence and depth of these reviews make it easy to progress in your career and feel like you have clear opportunities to work on.
    3. At its core, APT is a company that trusts its employees. For example, there's no time tracking to make sure that you've captured 40 hours, no one has to "approve" your vacations, etc. This could work pretty poorly at larger companies, but at APT there is an atmosphere where people are accountable and responsible even without "management" looking over their shoulders.
    4. There are plenty of perks (like snacks around the office, fun team events, and weekly catered lunches) - perks obviously aren't the most important part of working somewhere, but they do make it more fun.
    5. I work in the Arlington office and love the location - Arlington has a great "city feel" (there are tons of fun restaurants and shopping in the area, and you're also just miles away from DC and everything it has to offer). At the same time, because Arlington isn't as populated/popular as cities like DC, NYC, or SF, everything is more affordable and it's easier to find fun hiking trails and such.

    Kontras

    Some cons to note:
    1. Because APT has grown so quickly in the past couple of years, there are some "growing pains" (for example, some departments are pretty bottom-heavy). This can create pain points, but it also means that there are a ton of opportunities to step up and take ownership from the start.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Applied Predictive Technologies

    Pros

    - Depending on the verticals you work on, there can be a lot of opportunity for success. APT started off in the retail and restaurant sectors, and given the acquisition by Mastercard, is now strong in the financial services vertical - so if you work in this verticals, there's a lot of internal expertise and credibility that will help you sell. If you're in one of the newer verticals, it's more challenging to bring in sales by nature of not having the existing clients to work off of - but this presents opportunity for you to stand out if you can close deals.
    - Fantastic office space. Newly renovated and fit to APT's culture. Four kitchens, plenty of free meals and snacks, and a lot of social activities as a company. You can certainly find you niche people if you know where to look.
    - Commission for CSP level and up
    - Awesome workplace for those young in their career and looking to learn some basics. Plenty of money allocated towards professional development and graduate studies (if interested). For the Sales team, significantly fewer training sessions for professional development, but you can reach out to HR about specific trainings and have them approve a budget for you to pursue them.
    *Not necessarily a Pro or Con, but a note: Promotions tend to happen every 2 years. If you perform well, you can maybe bump that to 1.5 years, but it's highly irregular for anyone to be promoted within that time frame - regardless of what they tell you during the recruitment process.

    Kontras

    - "Bait and switch" Sales job descriptions. Make sure you ask a lot of questions around the true day to day of your role. There has been a history of up-selling job descriptions on the Sales team (i.e. promising people they'll run full sales cycles on their own, manage their own relationships, potential for commission) but the day to day can be 95% cold outreach (cold emails, cold calls, etc.), especially if you are a BDA or early CSP. Spend time with those actually in the roles to get a feel for that rather than putting weight into what senior management says. Candidates should note that sales people are good at selling -- so they are the first ones who might mislead you about the role, particularly if they've been at the company for 5 or 10+ years and they lack a pulse on what has changed since the Mastercard acquisition (2015).
    - Empty office. If you're looking for a highly collaborative/social team, the sales team may not be a fit. The desks are frequently empty (a mix of travel schedules and people who choose to work from home), so it can be pretty quiet. For people who are here -- headphones in and silent for the most part. Fairly independent work.
    - Miscommunication across Sales senior management. There's a disconnect between the pulse of the office on the ground and those higher up. Leadership positions are held by those who haven't held traditional sales roles before so it can be challenging to be on the same page about realistic sales expectations and what it means to hit goals.

    Rat an das Management

    - Be more transparent around job descriptions with candidates. It's not fair to sell candidates a "sexy" job description to pull them in and then disappoint them when the reality of the job comes out. This has caused and continues to cause attrition, particularly for BDAs and CSPs.
    - Give young talent more responsibility to lead and facilitate sales processes. There's plenty of strong talent coming through the door but they will leave if they aren't challenged professionally.
    - Hire a dedicated Sales Team Manager to watch the pulse of the team. Delegating the team management role across multiple people means that no one is accountable when there's rapid turnover or when people are getting burnt out. The team needs one person to go to when they're struggling with sales processes or need support. With everyone responsible for selling their own accounts, people will prioritize their own sales/responsibilities before they look to support the rest of the team.

    Pros

    -The people who work at APT are still amazing and friendly people.
    -There is a good culture surrounding individual growth and mentorship
    -It is easy to find ways to utilize your strengths

    Kontras

    -The somewhat recent acquiring by Mastercard has removed a lot of benefits that are needed to keep APT competitive. The sabbatical program is being removed, free health care was taken away, vacation days only increase after 6 years of work (as opposed to the original 3 years), profit sharing has moved to a 4 year vesting schedule (as opposed to immediate), no stock options/company performance based incentives
    -All those good people are slowly leaving APT
    -The culture is drifting away from small company/startup towards corporate america

    Rat an das Management

    You have a fantastic thing with APT. The choices you are making will cause some of your best people to leave. The people working here have been making many concessions for a little over a year. Eventually, you'll cross the wrong line in the sand and people will leave en masse.
    It keeps being said that the Mastercard acquisition is fantastic because they will take *our* culture. However, none of that is happening. We've lost:
    -healthcare
    -sabbatical
    -timely increase in vacation days
    -APT Units
    -referral bonus
    -team rooms (the pods are horrible)
    -much more

    While the only thing we've gained in return is a *slightly* better 401k system that is completely negated by a 4 year vesting. You have to realize that we can see this happening, and we will leave.

    The people you'll work with at APT are absolutely amazing - brilliant, kind, hardworking, etc.

    In terms of the actual work, you get to help answer some of the biggest questions global corporations are tackling. Instead of feeling like you're giving fuzzy answers based on guess-work, you know it's based on the facts.

    Pros

    It's been 6+ years at APT and I'm still in love with this company and my job. Some of the reasons are the same as when I started way back when, and many of the reasons are different but that's because I'm not the same person. APT's rapid growth means that the employees are given opportunities to grow quickly in both breadth and depth.

    Your title, team, and department are only part of all the ways that you contribute. I love the flexibility that APT gives to define your own career path. I have many role models at work but as I learn more about myself, I've realized that what I want doesn't quite fit anything I've yet seen. APT is ok with that. They're working with me to figure out what I'm passionate about and how that fits into APTs needs and opportunities. Every employee here has a different mix of skills and responsibilities that's based on their experiences and interests. They might have the same title but APT doesn't force them into a box because of it.

    Individuals at APT are humble. Senior leadership especially. APT is not perfect and that's not the goal. It's pretty great already in terms of benefits, company culture, solid growth, but we're constantly pushing ourselves to be better. Everything we do we ask for feedback and our clients and employees give it to us--honestly and frequently. It's exciting to be part of a team that values continuous improvement. You don't feel scared of failure because you know that you have more information on how to do it better next time. Working here feels incredibly safe--I have room to experiment and try things out as an individual and on the teams that I lead. Working with others feels cooperative no matter what level of seniority or department--there's rarely any sense of politics or hierarchy and when there is I know I can graciously call it out and we'll work to make it better.

    Kontras

    Success means growth and growth means scaling and scaling is hard. We're figuring it out. Sometimes we get it right, sometimes we don't. Figuring out how to adapt our working styles and processes as we become larger and more global has been tough.

    Integration with Mastercard isn't the smoothest. It can be frustrating to work with others who don't have the same "APT shared experience" and all the assumptions and values that come with it. It helps that at the end of the day we often have the same goal now that we're a part of their family but working with new people and adapting to their working styles is difficult.

    APT expects a certain level of independence and self knowledge of their employees. When things like daily mix of work and long term career path are open ended and tailored to each individual, it means you need to know what you want and that's an incredibly difficult question to answer. APT will of course support you and you'll get feedback from co-workers on your strengths and opportunities but at the end of the day it's on you to figure out what you're hoping to get out of your career--no one is going to give you that answer. This sort of open ended environment isn't for everyone, some individuals like more fixed goal posts.

    Rat an das Management

    Make a point to share your moments of failure, insecurity, or doubt. Having examples of the other side of the coin--times that you, or we as a company, missed the mark--is important and keeps us all honest.
