A leader in the industry that respects work-life balance

I worked at Acosta

ProsAcosta, a 'food broker', is a leader in the Consumer Packaged Goods industry. I did feel valued as an employee and had many positive experiences in the years I was there. Some of the people managers were better suited for independent contributor roles, but some were fantastic at communicating and developing their teams. It is a great place to work, especially for those with designs on careers in the Retail industry.

ConsPeople management skills at Acosta are not well developed in all people managers. Also, investments in technology are sometimes short-sighted. The company has a difficult time deciding when to buy and when to build solutions and testing of technology solutions in terms of usability and user acceptance is very poor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
