    I worked at Advanced Acoustic Concepts full-time

    Pros

    Laid back, flexible work hours. Great people to work with. Really difficult to get in trouble for anything that went wrong.

    Cons

    Poor career advancement, thankless, no communication between departments or from upper management. Pay was low for the position.

    I have been working at Advanced Acoustic Concepts full-time

    Pros

    decent benefit package, decent pay for the area and the internship program helps a lot of people get experience right out of college.

    Cons

    Repetitive work, slow growth. It is not the friendliest work environment. I'd say mainly due to the atmosphere created by the managers. There are too many and none of them communicate with each other or the rest of the employees. They really make you feel unappreciated for the work you perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upper management needs to get more involved, lower management needs to make cut backs

    I worked at Advanced Acoustic Concepts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only upside to working at AAC was the engineering staff. Most people were friendly and helpful but some are not. That's where the pros end.

    Cons

    Management is poor. Workers don't get enough credit for good work. Takes forever to get tools that are needed for software dev. Poor software dev practices if any at all as a result the code is buggy.

    I worked at Advanced Acoustic Concepts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There was a parking lot! And we would get a free lunch once in awhile! Food court nearby! Post office walking distance.

    Cons

    Horrible management team! Worst place ever ! Would not recommend this place to anyone! The women they have in management positions all are ignorant and narrow minded!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You all need to go to people skills training!

    Stable But Not Fulfulling

    I worked at Advanced Acoustic Concepts

    Pros

    Stable in an industry that will never die. Lots of great people, and the environment is very laid back; low pressure and easy workload.

    Cons

    The management is a big mess; every tool is outdated by at least 5 years (we were still building things in VS2005 in 2010). The main software was all broken and not working, yet still was not fixed. Not many opportunities beyond the niche.
