    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work in software packaging Pays well for the role.

    Cons

    Office is far from downtown A lot of interoffice politics Management doesn't always seem aware of staff as individuals Not a lot of opportunities to get into new roles.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on helping your staff feel like part of a time instead of just a way to bill clients.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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