    I have been working at Acosta part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions that allows employees to make their own schedule. Free range to implement your own unique work style to best organize and accomplish tasks how one sees its best fit.

    Cons

    Fast pace changing environment with a lot of clients and work to keep up with. Often unclear and questionable direction from upper management. Often times there can be too much inaccurate information which sometimes may cost employees double work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management should listen more to the thoughts, ideas, and concerns of those in the field and try to do a better job of implementing changes and giving clear direction.

    Pros

    Awesome manager, very understanding. Extremely flexible schedule, you don't need to do the merchandising calls exactly when they're scheduled, as long as you fill out your report and shoot it out before bed you're fine.

    Cons

    Low hours, managers can be hard to get in touch with. Dealing with territorial managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice really, I understand why my manager is hard to get a hold of sometimes. Awesome lady with a ton on her plate.

    Very little supervision, since hiered i only saw my supervisor once, when there was questions the only way to communicate was through email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow up with employees at least once a month in person to make sure work is done correctly, to communicate about concerns with product or questions in general
