I worked at Acurian full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Your doing something that will really help large number of people, while using the same tools others use to just 'sell' stuff.

Cons

Office Politics is always an issue. Doesn't mean its a bad place, just have to be careful what you say and to who you say it to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of the information your told, should be put though the bullsh** filter some more. Some falsehoods get believed by the wrong people and it creates unrealistic expectations.

    Pros

    NOTE TO CONSUMERS:

    Acurian Health is a reputable company. The company does not purchase contact information.

    Cons

    PLEASE SEE ADVICE TO MANAGEMENT CITED BELOW:

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees should have their own space and equipment (assigned cubicle and headset). This would produce or create a professional environment, make their employees feel like they're a value to the company AND part of the team. Acurian should care about their employees health. Sharing headsets at a call center is very unsanitary and can easily spread viruses / germs to all employees. While employees are screening candidates they may cough or inadvertently spit on the mouth piece. Cleaning wipes and replacement ear protectors should be provided to employees. If an employee forgets to remove their ear protectors at the end of their shift and another employee takes them, the employee is required to purchase a new pair.

    Acurian does not offer ANY employee benefits or incentives i.e. sick leave, holiday pay, excused absences, health insurance, outside staff activities (bowling or other sports activities, family picnics, community fund raisers), manager availability (open door policy), "Employee of the Month" acknowledgement and / or award, etc..

    If a company expects their employees to represent their services in a professional manner and perform at high level, they must in turn provide incentives and some benifits to their employees.

    One good manager, who was treated poorly for being a good manager, and the rest micromanaged.
