    I have been working at Apollo Fire Detectors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working for Apollo for 5 years and always had an opportunity to drive change and influence the development of the company. 7 months ago I left to have a baby but still wanted to stay connected with my job. Apollo offered me to lead the project remotely and was very supportive in accommodating my requirements for breastfeeding, whenever I needed to come into the office. As a result of the project, we had a working meeting in Venice, which I have also attended, along with my 7 months old son and husband. It was widely supported by Apollo. The Apollo team couldn't have made us feel any more welcome and cared for.

    Cons

    Improvements could be made to the maternity leave conditions

  2. "Nice people to work with, far too many projects on the go at once."

    I worked at Apollo Fire Detectors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, good benefits package and flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Too many projects on at once, with project priorities constantly changing making it difficult to finish anything. No opportunities for career progression. General lack of trust and faith in Directors.

    I have been working at Apollo Fire Detectors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a good ethos, has supportive programmes for employee welfare, and has recognised many of its own weaknesses and is acting to change them positively and proactively. The MD is driven, personable and trusting - very motivational. The company has begun adopting new ways of working to make it more based around teamwork and innovation which is great to see.

    Cons

    The business is slow to change, but the rate of change is improving all the time.

    I have been working at Apollo Fire Detectors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic atmosphere, culture and a true passion to deliver excellence from the senior leadership team. Not an organisation that just plays lip service to initiatives but fully believes in what they say and take positive actions to achieve their goals.

    Cons

    Shop floor staff only work a half day on Friday, it would be fantastic if this also applied to office staff too.

    I have been working at Apollo Fire Detectors for less than a year

    Pros

    Great, friendly and enthusiastic colleagues and working environment. Supportive, active management. Social events are common with a good mix multi-department socials. Flexi-Time is a bonus. Growing business which is exciting. Being on a student placement, they are investing in me and treat me like any other employee, rather than a student, with the same work-load and work as everyone else. Everyone is treated with respect.

    Cons

    Cannot think of any at this time.
