ACT

Coordinator (Current Employee) Iowa City, IA

ProsGood work and life balance still exists. Co-workers throughout company for the most part are great people to work with or for. Work environment is still casual dress. Supervisors work with you for time-off requests........especially for family-related activities.

ConsSometimes there is a lack of communication between levels and between different departments. Salaries are still not equal to positions in other businesses, but benefits are excellent. There is feeling between FT employees that there is too many "chiefs" and not enough "indians". Not many opportunities to move up the ladder unless you are specialized.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome management need to give their direct reports some room to grow. There is no reason to rule with an iron fist.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
