Pleasant, but stagnant

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe one undeniably great thing about ACS (at least when I worked there) was that employees had excellent health insurance, which wasn't too expensive, either. It was a pleasant place to work and I enjoyed it overall.

ConsThe organization (at least at the time) felt like it was over-staffed. Many people were able to get by without doing much work, it seemed. Also, the organization-- like many large organizations-- seems to be divided into silos, and it felt like it would have been impossible to transition from one dept to another.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire younger people; don't be so inflexible in terms of employee mobility and advancement.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
