    I worked at Accurate Background full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is growing very quickly and new positions are opening all the time.
    Great work/life balance with generous 3 weeks PTO. OT available most of the year if desired.
    Free pizza parties and BBQ's. Many departments throw their own potlucks.
    Company participates in numerous charity events. Sent two employees to South Africa to help a children's organization this year.
    Nice building in a good location.

    Come in early, stay late, work hard, engage others and communicate your needs. The opportunities will come, you just have to put yourself in the best position for when they arrive.

    Cons

    Many departments are full of people expecting a lot when they put in a little, so you'll hear some complaining.
    Tasks can get repetitive.
    Pay could be better and no 401K match.
    More clearly defined individual and team goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the cons in these reviews revolve around pay. You might want to look into that.

    Supportive management staff & CEO
    Growing company with lots of opportunities
    Great quality of people
    Solid overall work life balance

    Amazing Customers

    I have found that there are always people that are going to point out the flaws. Accurate Background is a really great place to work and be a part of. It is how we all work together that makes the most impact.

    Cons

    Nothing to report at this time

    I worked at Accurate Background full-time

    Pros

    The antics of management would make a great reality show, but, i a terrible job market, they hired me at a low salary, which is better than nothing. Health benefits were great (until new HR management cut everything to the bone). If you are VP+, accept the position and inflated salary and enjoy a few months of praise until they push you out.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional family environment complete with abusive husband. You will not be rewarded for hard work unless you are an attractive female or you cry to the CEO. If you are attractive, confess to shirking your duties and if you promise to get back on track, you'll get a raise and even an award. Any perks or appreciation that comes your way will be followed by a reminder to be appreciative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get therapy. You've scarred the lives of so many people.

    I worked at Accurate Background full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues were great made good friends. Drinks were subsidized. Occasional department potlucks were fun. Casual dress on Fridays. Coffee is from Starbucks.

    Cons

    Poor management. Had to give weeks notice if I planned to be out due to sickness. Management 'believes' compensation is competitive. Very little praise for work. Way too much turnover in the company. Everyone I know that was in my department has left. Employees feel defeated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay. Listen to your employees. Some great people that had help built that company all have left. Don't keep treating people like a number.

    I have been working at Accurate Background part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent training, flexible hours, excellent feedback without micromanagement, and I work from my home office. I am an employee, not a contractor. This job allows me to take care of my family myself--a lifesaver in so many ways. Love it!

    Cons

    My position is capped at no more than 25 hours per week. Work flow fluctuates; some weeks there is simply not that much work. There is a definite us/them vibe between the office staff and the remote staff. It's subtle, but it's there. It's difficult to feel like one team when there is no contact other than internal notes in a file. The pay scale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking that your remote workforce shouldn't consider this job a primary source of income. It is. Right now, it is my only source of income and the pay is low. I realize the trade off is the flexibility and working from home, and I am extremely grateful for that. I'd like to make enough to pay all of my bills AND have a little left over. Oh, right--that's what my 2nd part-time job is for! It pays $6.25 more PER HOUR than my pay rate with you. I really like this job and I'm good at it...but if my other job offers me more hours in the future, where do you think my loyalty will lie? Sadly, probably not with you...and I like you better.
