    Pros

    It's better than being unemployed. It's not hard to find better work.

    Cons

    Disorganized, low pay, always on call, convoluted pay scales, you're never off, they always found ways not to pay OT or overnights, no knowledge base to draw from, no clear escalation paths for issues, vague job descriptions, call outs on every holiday I worked there, etc etc etc...

    Pros

    Nice building, nice lunch room

    Cons

    Work and do what you are told. Low pay and you are disposable. A very strange place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new execs that have actually worked in Network Services.

    Pros

    Benefits were pretty good. Nice office in Strongsville, OH. Cons far outweigh the pros.

    Cons

    If you like working many hours a day, without getting paid overtime in many instances, having a disrespectful support staff and management, and low pay, then Acuative is for you. Was laid off in an instant when I did not want to relocate for a 2nd time within a year.. Having worked in the telecommunications industry since 1983, I can say this is the worst company I ever worked for. I NEVER worked for a company where a tech cannot look at a history of a trouble or install incident. Jobs/tickets received by field techs were vague and incomplete. Did not know what to expect when arriving on site. Techs had absolutely no input in the decision making process. Routes/dispatches set up with no input from the tech actually doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat you're techs with respect. Listen to what they say. They are more than pawns on a chess board.

    Pros

    Most of the managers do not micro manage. In fact, most of the managers do not manage at all. This is true for all management from the top down.

    Cons

    Beware! The positive reviews written during 2014 were all written by the marketing department. If your looking into this company, pay more attention to the prior reviews.

    Pros

    Hmm..that is a hard question to answer

    Cons

    Poor leadership, poor support, Asked for 100% all the time regardless of PTO, Management would defecate on any suggestions or request, Treated Techs as criminals, slaves, 3rd class citizens, and expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Get a life and stop treating your staff as a general labor force. and is it truly necessary for 4 layers of Management between your Techs and the company?

    Pros

    Very easy work for the most part, mostly brainless.

    Cons

    The management if you can even call them that are clueless. This is a small company run by 6 friends. They don't care about anything but themselves. They say they are the leader in this leader in that, they have no idea what they are doing. If you see a job advertised by them don't even submit a resume, if they call you run like hell. There is no advancement here at all they use you and throw you out.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.
