I have been working at Acumium full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
As of this review, I'm a pretty new addition to the Acumium team, but I'm having a great time so far. This is a nimble, proven, progressive-thinking company with interesting and varied work and a commendable focus on long-lasting client relationships. I love the team and am happy to be working with such a smart and collaborative group of people who work hard to do the right thing. Management has been nothing but supportive of me so far; I feel empowered, trusted, listened to and valued. The culture is fantastic. The environment is casual and light-hearted, with great respect for the significant overlaps between people's life and work. I can't think of a day that hasn't incorporated some fun. I came to Acumium after a long tenure at another company, and couldn't be happier with the move.
Some opportunities for improved communication and coordination in the project process and supporting toolkit to ensure account management/sales, marketing and development each consistently get what they need to be successful. May also be valuable to regularly evaluate changes in the technology landscape and make smart investments in in-house knowledge to stay competitive.
Advice to Management
Continue to delegate and bring on new talent (or develop existing talent) to address needed areas so management can focus on managing and growing the business. Stay protective of the amazing culture we have. It's a valuable differentiator. Don't let the occasional individuals who don't play by the rules spoil it for everyone else.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Acumium (Madison, WI) in October 2014.
My experience was a little unique, because I had two interview processes: the position I ended up accepting was not the one I initially interviewed for. For the position I ultimately took, interview was a combination of 1:1 conversation with the CEO and a tryout. Tryout consisted of a creative/design briefing on-site, followed by my doing work on a hypothetical project on my own time over about a week's time, and then an on-site review of the work by members of the team who would be consuming it. I believe the tryout model is used for many, if not most, positions at Acumium these days. I like the model, because I think it allows both the employer and potential employee to get a sense for each other in a way that a standard Q&A interview doesn't.
