ACT

Service Delivery (Current Employee)
Lakewood, CO

I have been working at ACT Teleconferencing full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat co-workers! HR tries to keep spirits up by planning fun activities, christmas parties, etc.

ConsDisorganized, no communication or very limited, very limited possibility for raises and no real room for growth into a supervisor/management postition.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees, especially when you solicit feedback! Don't assume that you are communicating to all staff via managers or supervisors.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A nightmare of in-fighting and large scale mismanagement

Administrator (Former Employee)
Lakewood, CO

I worked at ACT Teleconferencing full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe schedule is pretty flexible and discipline is rare and meaningless. Getting fired from here takes a fairly massive mess up or really not getting along with the other team members.

ConsEverything that isn't a flexible schedule or how hard you have to work to get fired. Managers that scheme and lie, a CEO that is completely out of touch and easily swayed by schemers and liars. Politics and personal vendettas rule the day-to-day and nepotism is the only way to meaningful promotion. ACT is a truly execrable and toxic environment. Computers and systems never work, IT is a joke here. Raises are non-existent. Reviews are forcibly downgraded by the VP of operations, who honestly seems to feel that rating hard working employees a 1 on a 1 to 4 scale (where 1 is "awful" and 4 "Excellent") is a motivator and that 4 is "Never to be used, in any case." It doesn't matter how good an employee you are, you will *never* get a good review here. Thus you will never get a raise or promotion. Make good financial sense, but means the company cannot retain any decent employees, and thus is doomed in the long run. The current owner intended to sell the company a couple of years ago, according to his 'town hall' meetings. I'm not surprised he hasn't, I can't imagine anyone would want to buy this global mess.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out. You are ruining a once-capable company and hundreds of lives world-wide. No one enjoys working for a pack of lying, disingenuous, and selfish bosses.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
