Work-Life Balance

A Career of Balance

Enhancing your well-being is a foundational element of our culture. Participate in staff-led guided meditation, or take a yoga class on the Central Green. Walk with your coworkers around campus on our Wellness Walking Circuits, or grab lunch and sit at one of our outdoor seating areas.

Generous Vacation and Leave

Paid leave is offered for major holidays, up to seven sick days, and one personal day during the year. Paid leave is also available for military leave, jury duty, continuing education, and bereavement. Paid vacation and annual carryover are based on years of employment and staff level.

Flexibility to Fit Your Schedule

Many positions offer the flexibility of adjusting your work schedule to meet your personal needs. Some employees may be eligible to work remotely.

Everything You Need Located on Campus

Our main campus is equipped with cafeterias, state-of-the-art fitness facilities and locker rooms, a medical center, and a post office. Our Recreation Office offers and coordinates family activities on campus.

Network, Get Involved, and Meet New People

Staff members at APL have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of employee resource groups, clubs, and organizations that provide opportunities to network and grow based on interests, cultural heritage, and more. From promoting diversity to building your presentation skills and even sports leagues, there are many ways to get involved and meet new people.
