    I have been working at ACT (Iowa City) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work with some of the best co-workers! They make work a lot of fun! The benefits are the best in the area. The work/life balance is important to ACT and they do their best to make sure that every employee has the time they need. There are career opportunities here. ACT offers a lot of training classes, both classroom setting and online.

    Cons

    The salaries for non-exempt workers is a little low, but benefits help offset that for me. There are a few to many "bosses". Not every department gets the same opportunities because management does not push those opportunities the same way.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to morale in certain areas of the company. Those areas could be the reason our score is not higher.

    I worked at ACT (Iowa City) full-time

    Pros

    ACT has a nice cafeteria and the campus is very pretty. The benefits were good and the vacation time was generous. I learned a lot there earlier in my career. I enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    There is little to no room for advancement and creativity is not encouraged. It's a very top down organization, and you really don't have much real input into how things happen if you are below a certain pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Some of them have good ideas, even if they aren't paid as well as you.
