    I have been working at Acrodex full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good place to start in your career and get a base set of skills
    Lots of opportunity to move around, change positions and try new things (its encouraged)
    Co workers and management (at least for the position I was in) were professional and friendly

    Cons

    The pay is better literally everywhere else. I have not once come across another company that pays its employees less than Acrodex does. Other reviews will say the same. It's a paycheck to paycheck job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay rates to be more competitive. At the time of writing this myself and six other experienced co workers are trying to leave for better paying jobs. It would really help with retaining experienced employees

    I worked at Acrodex full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I give Acrodex credit for giving me a chance when nobody else would. They hired me shortly after I completed university. My university training was completely unrelated to information technology.

    Despite having no qualifications for my job, they trained me from the ground up.

    Cons

    Working for Acrodex was living paycheque to paycheque. After benefits, deductions and taxes I was always hardly getting by. It was just not enough to live off of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having to threaten to quit in order to be given a salary increase is not healthy for management or for staff.

    I worked at Acrodex

    Pros

    good experience
    nice people
    nice place to get around with different companies and get noticed more.
    great way to make contacts

    Cons

    low wage
    some times because they are a big company they tend to not notice you a lot so it feels like you are a small fish in a big sea

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the little people

    I worked at Acrodex full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to generate ideas and have these supported (if relevant)
    Great people
    Lots of room to grow for those that work hard
    Access to Senior Management or ownership

    Cons

    Not always a clear direction from ownership
    salaries for entry level positions tend to be below average
    Some weak Senior Management - promoted due to years of service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the advice of your strong employees both past and present - not everyone is a fool!
    Your staff is number one - not your colleagues and "management club".
