Personalized For People
APL employees thrive under mixed leadership, as every team has figured out the exact ratio of hands-on and hands-off management best suited for them. In general, this ratio involves a lot of freedom and little supervision. However, one quality is consistent across the entire lab—the Open-Door Policy, which helps place all employees on a level playing field.
