    I worked at ACTS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The management is good, scheduling is very flexible for me while in school, the residents are cool. And hey, we get all the free food we can eat! good especially when we have ribs! lol

    Cons

    The cafe supervisor is so mean. She treats employees horribly and residents even worse!! She is the reason I left. She made me cry so many nights when I went home. She knows all the tricks to keep her job she is one shady lady. The other kids I worked with in the cafe all thought the same. Managers seemed like they tried to correct her but corporate protects the bad people and fires the good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to make the difficult calls and fire staff that is bad.

    I have been working at ACTS

    Pros

    Great work environment. I love the religious background of why ACTS was started. The company has true values and cares for the workers and residents.

    Cons

    The pay is not very high because it is a non-profit organization. They do not pay the hourly staff very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay hourly staff better

    I worked at ACTS full-time

    Pros

    At the community level, ACTS is a family-like atmosphere. There is a lot of longevity since folks love their work and know they are making a difference in the lives of our residents. Employee to employee, there is genuine interest and care. ACTS mission of loving-kindness is lived out among the employees and residents alike. In addition, the medical benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    At the corporate office there is dysfunction at the executive leadership level, which is not uncommon in corporate America. The executive leaders have lost their ability to relate respectfully to those within their care. They are concerned first and foremost about themselves in every regard. They are not visible leaders who take the time to walk around the building, getting to know the employees. They are not assertively engaged in encouraging, appreciating and supporting the employees. They do not live out their own mission of loving-kindness. In this economy, employees are afraid to speak what they really feel. The "Top 100 Places to Work" survey results are therefore inaccurate.

    Pros

    Great residents, excellent staff, good food, great location.

    Cons

    Facility is very dirty, the fees are very expensive, The leadership is lacking and it shows when you walk into the facility. The Director in charge of the facility does not care about the employees and has run the place into the ground in a matter of 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the senior manager in charge of the facility.

    I worked at ACTS

    Pros

    Good hours while you are in school or college. It's fun getting to know the residents. They let you make your own schedule where I worked, and they offered scholarships for students when I was there. I got to meet lots of different people. They treat their employees well.

    Cons

    The pay could've been better, but it was ok for me.

    Pros

    Great for high school or college students.
    Can work with your schedule.
    Coworkers can be fun to work with.
    Reliable pay.
    Interacting with the residents can be fun.

    Cons

    Terrible management.
    Interacting with the residents can be stressful and frustrating.
    There seems to be an image that this job is the greatest job in the world, in the eyes of management.
    No room for growth.
    Bias from management toward different workers.
    No matter how hard you work, even doing multiple peoples work, it means nothing unless you are a favorite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate management more often by allowing anonymous employee reviews.
    Evaluate the effective use of budget from management. (Being constantly under budget isn't necessarily a good thing if it hurts the quality of the output.)
    Take suggestions of employees for improvements or ideas to better the individual communities.
    Put more career development opportunities in place.
    There needs to be more reward, or recognition, for employees who have been with the company for long term.
