horrendous hiring experience at ACS. this place should be avoided at all costs.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Prosthere are no pros with this experience. i'm appalled.

ConsI've never encountered such a lack of professionalism, bullying, and non-transparency. I was not able to obtain an official offer letter in writing and my salary was substantially reduced after the offer was verbally extended. Additionally, I was pressured into deciding on the position at the end of the business day on friday. avoid at all costs. i've never experienced such appalling lack of professionalism.

Advice to Senior Managementofficial offer letters in writing should be extended with an offer, not after an individual accepts a position. this is standard policy at most PROFESSIONAL institutions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
