Pros

Good work and life balance. Easy going work environment. Only 7.5 hours of work everyday which accounts for 37.5 hours/week. Good number of holidays in a year with 15 days of vacation and 20 days of sick leave.

Cons

Salary as compared to other companies at the same position with same relevant professional experience is not satisfying. The career growth opportunity is very less.

Advice to Management

To change and give every employee a career growth opportunity. Give importance to every member and give good appraisals. If not bonus being a non-profit they can give gifts every year to ACT employees as they make too much profit but don't know where to use being a non-profit.

    Temp positions don't pay much at all, permanent positions very difficult to get.

    Pros

    Nice people, professional work environment, looks good on a resume, 37.5 hour workweek with flexible hours, and often the material on which you work is pretty interesting.

    Cons

    I worked there as a temp, so pay, benefits, and opportunity to advance within the company were very disappointing (that is to say, non-existent).

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Work life balance, job security, really nice colleagues, educated people. Great benefits, really generous relo package.

    Cons

    Senior leadership has high turnover, pay is horrible, no opportunities for promotion, and they discourage creativity, innovation, and taking charge of one's own work and career.

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for employees, work towards actually growing the business as it makes a big impact on the state of Iowa's economy, stop being so controlling and worry about just making the organization more successful.
