    ACT is an amazingly fun, creative and worthy organization

    Box Office (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe artists on the stage, to the artistic director, to the development team, to the concessions employees, everyone works together to make this the best theatre experience on the west coast.

    ConsThe pay is never as good in a not for profit as you would like, but the overall benefits package and the ability to see the best live theatre on the West Coast if not the US makes up for this, even though SF is an expensive city to live in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with your strategic plan and continue including all staff in the strategic plan workshops. this is such an important facet of making the next generation of ACT even better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Employees are not valued

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsThere are learning opportunities in nearly all aspects of creative and business areas.

    ConsPlanning and communications are completely lacking from upper management. They do not value their staff or treat them well. I can't imagine that the board of directors is kept informed. I wonder if they know how inept management is at setting priorities, communicating with the staff and executing plans to increase revenue and patron loyalty.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the staff. Respect the people who talk to the customers and do the daily work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsYoung, enthusiastic staff... Dynamic performing arts environment...

    ConsSenior management out-of-touch with needs of organization at-large...cronyism and one-upmanship create environment of mistrust and misinformation....

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen and put your egos aside.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
