    Former Employee - Systems Analyst in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Acrodex full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Investment in people, good processes. Fun atmosphere most of the time
    I have worked for their competition as well and the grass is no greener elsewhere either.
    I still keep in touch with people in Calgary and they all seem pretty happy there.
    Definitely worth applying and considering a career with Acrodex

    Cons

    Their location is a little too far from downtown, but a really nice office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in more Sales staff, you have a very solid services team
    Also possibly more management staff.

    I have been working at Acrodex as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -great entry level and networking positions.
    - good focus on small teams.
    - decent pay and benefits (depending on position/ contract)
    - friendly and helpful attitude with lower management.

    Cons

    - pay is dependant on contract , but could be better.
    - lack of clear direction sometimes, poor documentation or organization of duties.
    - things tend to feel hap hazard at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acurratly detailing assignments and corresponding with employees is vital, and should be focused on much more. Periodic reviews and q/a sessions with employees would be a great boon to the company as a whole.

    I have been working at Acrodex full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good place to start in your career and get a base set of skills
    Lots of opportunity to move around, change positions and try new things (its encouraged)
    Co workers and management (at least for the position I was in) were professional and friendly

    Cons

    The pay is better literally everywhere else. I have not once come across another company that pays its employees less than Acrodex does. Other reviews will say the same. It's a paycheck to paycheck job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay rates to be more competitive. At the time of writing this myself and six other experienced co workers are trying to leave for better paying jobs. It would really help with retaining experienced employees

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

    Pros

    I give Acrodex credit for giving me a chance when nobody else would. They hired me shortly after I completed university. My university training was completely unrelated to information technology.

    Despite having no qualifications for my job, they trained me from the ground up.

    Cons

    Working for Acrodex was living paycheque to paycheque. After benefits, deductions and taxes I was always hardly getting by. It was just not enough to live off of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having to threaten to quit in order to be given a salary increase is not healthy for management or for staff.
