Pros

Very conservative steady company in a steady industry, so you don't usually worry about them going under. Poor performance is not well accounted for, therefore it's often not held against you. Nice people, generally older family oriented people who keep to themselves. If you like old-fashioned 8-5 work time, this is the place for you.

Cons

Good performance is rarely recognized or rewarded. The pay and vacation/benefits is sub-par by comparing to other companies in the area. Most employees are either under-resourced, under-trained, or simply under-motivated to do effective work. The company history is one of many buyouts, mergers, and high employee turnover. Because of this, the company is frustratingly disorganized and inefficient. Morale is pretty low for the majority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To start, hire more people--in every department. Next, at least allow for a week of vacation rollover from a previous year. Current resources need serious review and re-structuring to be able to finish projects, better evaluate people, and prevent extreme boredom and frustration in the office.

    Pros

    Good place to start a job. ASC is a large comapny, but each site is fairly small and allows a person to take on many roles

    Cons

    Top level management have not the sharpest and lean on a re-engineering strategy which doesn't get you very far

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some top talent to take over crucial leadership and site roles
