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

    Pros

    Appropriate authority and supervision given to perform job functions efficiently. In other words, no micromanagement is awesome! Supported me in achieving PMP certification.

    Cons

    Remote offices. No heavy interaction with PMO. Minimal interaction with HQ.

    Former Employee - Back Office Support Management
    Former Employee - Back Office Support Management

    I worked at Advancia full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, small organization, low bureaucracy.

    Cons

    They continuously lay (read fire) people off with not even an hour of warning. It could be due to performance or budget, they won't say. Awful business practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a better company by managing and mentoring your employees. No one wants to work for a company and they never know if they will have a job the next day.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Small Company, loose office structure

    Cons

    Company President and other leadership had no clue what they were doing, filled their pockets at the expense of hard working contract staff. They would then let you know how beneath them you are, do yourself a favor and find a more reputable company to work for. This company was loosing all their federal contracts and winning few beginning in 2012 and the trend has not changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horse and admit you can not succeed without the staff around you.

    Former Employee - Site Manager - Curriculum Developer in Fort Leavenworth, KS
    Former Employee - Site Manager - Curriculum Developer in Fort Leavenworth, KS

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

    Pros

    Flexible, but failed to include satellite locations into business planning; Holiday planning; No Bonuses either.

    Cons

    Upper Management failed to respond effectively to Middle Management.

    Middle Management did not have hire AND fire authority which ultimately negated the entire organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screen your employees - especially contracted employees that are viewed as "warm bodies" filling a slot so the company can receive income. "Warm bodies" overburden the functioning team!

    I have been working at Advancia

    Pros

    My direct supervisor was military and more liberal with my personal needs than Advancia.

    Cons

    They skimp the employees who actual do the contract labor and keep too much for theirselves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step off your high-horse and treat your contract labor better.
