Overall- Just "okay"

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsACS is a great company to work for in that it represents such a great cause! The work environment is great and fellow coworkers are all very interpersonal.

ConsToo much down time for my liking (which depending on the type of person you are can be considered a pro actually). There is a lack of internal structure.
