    I have been working at ACS (Actividades de construccion y Servicios)

    Pros

    Some very nice coworkers who are hard workers
    Flexible projects and continual challenges
    Understanding of work hours and schedules
    Not a lot of extra hours required

    Cons

    No road map for career advancement
    No consistent recognition of key players
    Financial package is poor
    Senior management willing to sacrifice at the lower level in order to meet bottom-line goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The engineers and developers doing the actual work are the real important resources of the company. Support their growth professionally and financially and you would see a greater return in product quality and speed of delivery.

    Shame on you ACS for offshoring our jobs to India!

    I worked at ACS (Actividades de construccion y Servicios)

    Pros

    Great pay
    Flexibility
    Ability to work from home (and avoid all the drama, politics and lack of productivity associated with working in a corporate office)

    Cons

    Lack of job security
    Working from home makes you less visible (and perceived as less valuable)
    Ambiguity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shame on you for offshoring jobs oversees, especially during these tough economic times when so many US citizens are out of work. There are plenty of qualified, well-educated, hard-working people here in the US who NEED jobs. Hopefully, you'll wake up when you start losing clients because of the reduced quality of work and inconveniences of working with people oversees.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, and they paid travel expenses.

    Cons

    Very transactional atmosphere - with people as transactions; work, make money for the company, get to keep some of the money, repeat. Very little human sensitivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are more than just financial transactions.

    Cons

    Length of hours required at management level.

    Expectations from low paid staff are unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i would look at the way that the upper management treats their staff. Much like expendable commodities instead of like people.

    It is the best place to start a career. You must be capable of working with very little help from your superiors.

    I have been working at ACS (Actividades de construccion y Servicios)

    Pros

    - You will build a good resume. Specially if you go abroad.
    - No boundaries. All the information is at your reach if you are willing to get responsibility.
    - Friendly relations between the employees.

    Cons

    - No coaching, training, feedback of any type.
    - If you are working abroad, be sure that you are going to be alone (don´t expect any help from your superiors).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The empowerment the manager do is great. But some feedback will be good. Communicate what are the expectations you have for your employees.
