ACS has a really good thing going, if they don't squeeze it so hard into the shape of everybody else.

Pros

Talented people can advance. Not pushing a product, but really trying to help customer solve a problem. Senior execs take you under their wing and show you how to succeed. They're honest with you about what matters.

Cons

Short-term thinking, little investment in things that won't pay off for a year or two. Not too much recognition of life/work balance issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a longer view of people - don't judge them quicky by this single great deal or this single lousy quarter. Customer really trust us because of genuine expertise in their world -- don't mess with that by making us look just like the competition with generic products and people.

    Pros

    This is a smart, hungry company that is smart enough to have a diversified business plan to weather a tough economy. The company consists of smart, entrepreneurial people who are working hard to ensure that the company is successul for employees and stockholders.

    Cons

    Becasue ACS has grown through acquisitions, it feels much like a startup.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive leadership has done a great job of guiding the company through some very tough times. While other companies are on the rocks, ACS continues to show that it is a strong performer.

    Pros

    The company is a well-respected leader in its field; confidence in leadership; the company's business model does well in challenging economic environments. I feel good about coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    There are none; if anything, the downsides might be the current economic environment we're operating in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to place emphasis on communicating with employees (they do this well and I'd like it to continue).
