I have been working at Acrodex

Pros

Head Office Environment is pretty good but could be a little more friendly.
Benefits are Ok but you pay for half of them.
Great Place for new people looking to get experience but with Acrodex Subcontracted to Half of Edmonton it is very difficult to get hired elsewhere.
Christmas Party is Fun.

Cons

Offsite / Contract work is Site dependant some sites are far better then others.
No reviews in 4+ Years for Many Employee's
No Cost of Living Increases or Raises of any Sort very often.
Management will take Expense money away if they feel the need to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating the Company like a revolving door
Start developing Employee Loyalty with proper reviews, raises or some form of Perks.

    Current Employee - Desktop Support
    Current Employee - Desktop Support

    I have been working at Acrodex

    Pros

    NOTE: you do not normally work at the main office, you work at a contract site, so I was working in many areas of the city and enjoyed my day to day activities.

    Good benefits, same as other large companies

    Cons

    I have only received 1 performance review and 1 raise.
    Felt like a robot
    Management did not approach me when there were courses available to take
    No communication from management with regard to performance, or other contracts
    Salaries were low
    I only realized my true potential when I took a risk and applied for a position with another company that I felt sure that I wasn't qualified for, and was shocked when I got a second interview, sadly I realized that I felt incompetent due to my Acrodex experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some managerial courses, or communication courses
    Learn how to help to make your employees feel more valuable and help them to realize their potential

    I have been working at Acrodex

    Pros

    Encouragement to develop skills
    Plenty of growth opportunity
    Wide range of knowledge on many products and services

    Cons

    Underpaid salaries (10k to 25k less then their competition...but this is why then can underbid the competition)
    Senior and Executive Management only talk to each other.
    Many employees have a terrible team attitude and aren't willing to help others
    HR and Payroll departments are incredibly incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review salaries and promote a team atmosphere. Acrodex is a springboard into the IT world. They have high turnover because people get in, learn a ton and then get out.
