Pros

ACE is well-respected in the higher ed field; terrific work-life balance; very good benefits package; smart, talented staff; great location

Cons

higher ed policy and advocacy work take top billing always while other projects can suffer from lack of leadership attention; nontransparent decisionmaking at all levels; surprisingly nonstrategic decisions; poor communication among departments and across management and leadership

Advice to Management

Consider expanding beyond the narrow pillars of your mission; take staff morale seriously--it's very low; demonstrate true strategic thinking; show genuine compassion

    Pros

    ACE is a model organization with quality leadership, excellent resources, and a great work culture. Easily the best place I've ever worked.

    Cons

    I can honestly say that I haven't had any bad experiences working at ACE. At the same time, I've only worked here for nine months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! ACE management really does a good job of bringing the best of out each employee and I have definitely enjoyed my time working here.
