Pros

Great benefits and great staff. I made many long term friendships while employed at ACT.

Cons

New leadership doesn't value long term employees. Trying to change everything at once. Company promised early retirement option to many and then discontinued it. Lots of people were counting on that plan. Many people were counting on ACT being a life-time employer, but are now unemployed due to outsourcing.

Advice to Management

Need to trim down the upper management. Way too many chiefs. Brought in too many business types and not enough education experts. Need to clean house starting at the very top.

    Pros

    ACT is a Mission Driven Not-For-Profit. This is not a place to work if you're a climber, focusing on your income only. People work here for the quality of life, the beautiful campus and facility, wellness programs, unbelievable benefits, and fair pay for an NFP.

    Cons

    Biggest con of working here is the organization is undergoing a major reorganization as they modernize systems, process, and try to help their people adapt to the rapidly changing world of assessment. ACT has been doing the same things for a long time really well, it is working through a good many changes and there are a few bumps!

    Advice to Management

    People coming in from the outside are not necessarily better than the loyal employees who are invested in the company and it's future. Focus on clearer succession and promotion planning for people who deserve it. Make the people you currently employ, their development and skill improvement your focus.
