Negative Outlook

I have been working at Acrodex full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Use it as a stepping stone to your next job You can get training

Cons

No real leadership Be billable or be gone Owners only care about their reputation in the community Good luck getting a raise or cost of living increase Don't listen to employee recommendations Dealing with the owners is frustrating Training is only if they can bill you out for more money You're never in the head office. You're always on a client site. Senior people are hired and then leave because they get frustrated

    I worked at Acrodex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company has some good people at the top. Good contracts, and a decent benefits package.

    Cons

    A serious lack of progressive and open leadership. Many great people come and go due to the restrictive nature and short sighted view of the top brass. It is like getting asked to make a salad and then being told that you only have lettuce to work with. To grow and build, the soldiers need direction and support but also need flexibility and opportunity. That is not the Acro-way.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teams, not just the members of the family. Trust the skills and leadership you hire to do the jobs that they could do if you would just let them do it. Know also that the numbers do not tell the whole story, they are but a single indicator. Epcor, Enbridge....many things lost due to the lack of open visionary thought.

    Pros

    Corporate decisions can be made quickly Good work/life balance Management is open to listening to new ideas They give back financially

    Cons

    Be billable or be gone Way behind on the adoption of technology in our own business We are partners with everybody The owners often disagree openly with each other when junior staff are around A lot of what we do is based on how it will make the owners look to others

    Advice to Management

    Retire
