    Entry Level

    Former Employee - Parts Purchasing in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Acrodex full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Positive work environment. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Very low pay and no benefits

  2.  

    It's a revolving door and management just does not care

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

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Contract with all major employers in the region
    Nobody stays late, get to go home at the end of the day

    Cons

    Revolving door so your new friends won't stick around for too long
    Run into any ex employee, don't tell them you work there or you might get spit on
    Ex employees hate this company with a passion
    Management does not care
    Was lied to on several occasions and could prove it easily
    Bait and switch on most job offers... you apply to work in Edmonton, and they want you to go work in Ft. McMoney for the same wages (that is impossible and anyone that falls for this usually quits or threatens to quit and then are transferred to Edmonton)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like royalty, maybe say hi to one of your employees when you are alone in the lunch room with them instead of pretending we aren't there. You act high class but you sure aren't.

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

    ok company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Acrodex

    Pros

    good experience
    nice people
    nice place to get around with different companies and get noticed more.
    great way to make contacts

    Cons

    low wage
    some times because they are a big company they tend to not notice you a lot so it feels like you are a small fish in a big sea

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the little people

    Former Employee - Technical Analyst I in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Former Employee - Technical Analyst I in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Acrodex as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people .
    Great work life balance

    Cons

    -Below average pay $16.00/ hr to start . Network people make $19.00 an hour way below normal

    -Lure you in saying you can get training & then boot you to the curb before you can.

    -Revolving door when they are busy they need someone, when they aren't they get rid of you.

    -False hopes

    -No overtime, unless approved. (which is never).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Give feedback to your employees & or contract people. Feedback is a tool which helps people do better.

    -Some people want to be there & some don't

    -the people who just don't give a dam should leave.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to generate ideas and have these supported (if relevant)
    Great people
    Lots of room to grow for those that work hard
    Access to Senior Management or ownership

    Cons

    Not always a clear direction from ownership
    salaries for entry level positions tend to be below average
    Some weak Senior Management - promoted due to years of service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the advice of your strong employees both past and present - not everyone is a fool!
    Your staff is number one - not your colleagues and "management club".

    Pretty platonic

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Acrodex

    Pros

    Not micromanaged. Allowed to take initiatives. Good in the short term. Great cross-functional support and engagements.

    Cons

    Work becomes pretty routine over time. That may or may not work for some people. It appears not much is offered in the way of growth due to compensation issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if the company can evolve along more effective lines. It appears the current market strategy is that of a lowest bidder. This tends to translate into inability to sustain a thriving and high-morale employee base.

    Pros

    Will give anyone a chance
    good core teams on the ground
    Tremendous amount of good will from staff
    Relaxed working environement

    Cons

    Salaries are in lowest 5% on avg across the board
    will not be your last job
    mediocre benefits
    Poor management and direction
    People are promoted into thier level of incompetance
    poor recognition of good work
    poor moral ethics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your socks up and start rewarding and recognising when people are doing a good job. You rely to heavily on the good will of your workers bees maily because your management are directionless bullies or weak....strange combination..
