I worked at ACT

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    It is a great place to work if you are not a technical person and enjoy the atmosphere of a company in the 1950's.

    I worked at ACT

    Pros

    There is a high emphasis of ensuring work-life is balanced. The raw intelligence of the people at ACT is very high. It is smarted group of people, intellectually, that I have worked with in my career.

    Cons

    The company is stuck in the past and is very arrogant in regarding any suggestions for improvement. Their way is the best way and since they are so smart (you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a PhD) it is inconcievable there is a flaw in the process. There is little or no standardization of process outside of research. If you work in IT you are a second class citizen and treated with disdain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace technology and recognized that the folks in IT have a lot to offer in terms of innovation and helping ACT maintain the competitive advantage it currenly has over others in the testing market.
