Fast-paced, technology leader in virtualization. Open-door policy with the company owners leads to a culture of openness, fun and accountability. Excellent opportunity for learning and growth at all levels. Flexible work structure allows employees to work from wherever/whenever, focusing on deliverables.

Small company with requisite growing pains. Compensation is well below industry average. Lack of organizational maturity.

Advice to Management

Improve inter-company communications and make compensation packages more competitive.

    Pros

    It's better than unemployment. Trying to be objective, there are good people working here and they treat each other great. Mostly it's a wink/wink that they all know the place is terrible and they're all trying to leave...so they are really nice to each other. Why pour salt in the wound?

    Cons

    Hard to list them all. The owners have absolutely driven this once great little company off a cliff. They took advantage of their people, business partners, and even customers. And the birds came home to roost. The only good people who don't want to leave have personal relationships with the owners. Just about every posting here says that people are underpaid. That used to be ok because it was fun. Now it's a mess. The only way to get good people to join a mess is to overpay them...which they can't afford to do. So A's were replaced with B's. B's with C's. And so on. Now they just advertise that they can do whatever is hot in the market, but everyone knows they can't deliver anymore. You should only work here if you have no better option.

    Advice to Management

    Sell. In the name of all things holy, why don't you sell? Everyone knows you built the company to sell it. The fact that you've let it get this bad without selling just makes you look like you can't sell because no one wants it. Your employees don't care about the company (witness the majority of these posts). And there's not much you can do without them. Except sell. It's time to go do something else.


  2. Great company culture

    Pros

    Accelera is a small company that has experienced growing pains like any other small business. However, the thing that sets this company apart from the other government contractors I have worked for is the company culture. Management cares about employees and with that comes flexibility, trust, and many other benefits. Employees genuinely like working with each other and many are friends outside of the office. That leads to a much more pleasant working environment and it shows in the work they produce.

    Cons

    We had a rough time at the end of last year and the beginning of this year and they could have been handled better. I believe management has used that experience to make improvements to our processes that will avoid a similar situation in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue improving communication and transparency. Some employees jump to the most negative conclusion when they do not have an answer to their questions and it causes issues that would not otherwise exist.
