Pros

Great for a person lacking professionalism, ethics or credentials and you can fly under the radar with their executive management teams inability to identify the issues from within the organization.

Cons

Low quality deliverables, no training offered, unprofessional, unknowledgeable staff and management. CEO hires or promotes friends and family regardless of credentials and/or experience. Dinosaur aged solutions and management tools for projects, outdated systems, policies and SOPs are extinct. They can not retain or recruit real talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You will never survive in this competitive market!

    Pros

    Opportunities for career advancement, challenging multi-therapeutic experiences, fun and supportive hard working teams.

    Cons

    Adapting to change that goes along with rapid growth can be challenging if you are not a proactive person who will reach out and seek what you need to get the job done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shift the paradigm where 3% of staff (non-performers) take up 90% of your time! Give more recognition to the "glue"that holds things together and always steps in to pick up the slack or clean up the issues.

  2. Incompetent management operating a totally unprofessional environment.

    I worked at Accelovance full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    i enjoyed of the friendships I made and it was an easy commute for me. Not many other positives come to mind.

    Cons

    Poorly run company with lots of bullying and intimidation, particularly females. They probably make a lot of money but they do not care about the people that there. The turnover rate is unbelievably high. Small clique is allowed to operate and treat people however they want and most complaints are just ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As most reviews here show, the upper management staff just doesn't seem to care much. Upper management seems to believe they can do now wrong. The company culture is one of intimidation.
