Employee Comments

    Former Community specialist in Newport News, Virginia

    I had excellent health benefits at ACS. Some complained that it was expensive, but when I got pregnant and delivered my son, the only thing I paid was a $35 copay at my first visit!

    The benefits package offers good options for health care, great time off, and a solid retirement plan.

    ACS offers great options for benefits including not only different choices such as HMO vs. PPO, but also choices between different insurance companies. The also offer a 401(c)(3) in place of a 401K.

    The best part of the package was the paid holidays

    Best thing is the paid time off- you have about 20 days when you first start and can accrue more each year up to 30 days PTO. You have to use your PTO for sick days, family sick days, etc. I wish they offered some type of tuition reimbursement if you decided to go take a class for something that would help you in your job, but they do not. The medical,dental, and vision plan I had were affordable and accpeted everyplace I went.

    ACS offers a great work environment, they have an awesome mission statement, and they offer wonderful benefits (medical, dental 403B with match, work from home policy, PTO, and the list goes on). The staff work hard and together in the fight against cancer.

    Great health insurance to balance extremely low pay.

    Current Employee in Springfield, Illinois

    Our Paid Time Off benefit is very generous! Also, even though our co pay keeps increasing, our health care plan is very good. The worst thing is now they are charging spouses that have other health care options to be on their spouses plan (i.e. now my spouse is on a different plan through his/her work than me and my child).

    Full medical benefit, generous pay time off, 403K, and pension after 5 years of service.

    Former Account Manager in Austin, Texas

    Full benefits and excellent work environment.
