    Pros

    The base pay is pretty good, benefits are ok too, and some of your co-workers will be cool as well. Depending on contract you can probably swing a desirable security clearance too.

    Cons

    Benefits, while good, are really expensive. Upper management doesn't communicate with staff unless they have to. Given less than a weeks notice that merit increases wouldn't be paid to anyone, made the whole merit review process a farce.

    No big contract wins in several years, growth only by buying other companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, honestly. Actually, communicate something that's not full of bad buzz speak. Not giving raises to billable staff whose bill rates went up is not ok.

    Pros

    Acentia has great benefits, strong leadership, excellent growth opportunities, very supportive of her employees. The CEO is an outstanding communicator and his passion is reflected corporate wide.

    Cons

    They have, like many companies, bought into some of the political-correctness of the Affordable Care Act by implementing a very strict no smoking policy as well as a weight management program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HHS and IRS are two of your major clients. You know ACA isn't ready for prime time, and the guidelines are being postponed. Forcing a non-smoking and weight management policy on your employees smacks of Big Brother.
