Ran out of there screaming

Researcher (Former Employee)
Iowa City, IA

I worked at ACT

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

ConsSenior 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 Senior ManagementHave 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
