    Pros

    Good to work with them if you're looking to contract for MS. They can find a- positions if you're interested in that.

    Cons

    I contracted through Act-1 and the people responsible for my account were not helpful at all. They were fine with getting me signed with MS, but were useless as soon as I signed my contract. The staff there are lazy and not smart. They are not proactive. They don't care about your success beyond signing you with the company. And most importantly - they do not know how to work with senior management. I was embarassed to have them harass my managers in a poor way. I regreted having Act-1 represent me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, teach your recruiters and account managers to work more professionally with the people they represent and senior management outside of Act-1. Teach them to be proactive, speak with professionalism, and only send their employees relevant emails.

    Indivicual managers are more reflective of how well you will like the job than upper management.

    I worked at ACT-1

    Pros

    Met the CEO, Janice Bryant Howroyd, and loved her, she's actually the whole reason I decided to work for this company - unfortunately her attitude didn't trickle down to the manager I worked under.

    Cons

    Manager was ridiculous. She was completely incapable of the job, always blaming people under her for her mistakes, going on rants and crying at her desk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful of the managers you put under you. Just because they were a good-performing recruitier doesn't mean they will be a good manager.
