    I have been working at Acumium full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at Acumium, and appreciate the effort that has gone into ensuring a wonderful work environment and culture, full of great people who work hard and genuinely care about the clients we work with.

    As with most places, you're expected to be a responsible adult professional who gets their work done. At Acumium, you're also *trusted* to be that responsible adult professional. Legitimate trust in your employees often seems to be overlooked, but not here, and it's something I value very highly.

    Part of the excellent work/life balance is management that understands life happens. Whether it's a doctor's appointment you've had scheduled for a month, an unexpected sick family member, or one of those awesome service appointments with a 4+ hour window, as long as you're getting your work done, it's ok.

    For professional growth, you're not only encouraged to pursue ongoing professional and personal development, you're provided with access to the resources to do so. If the resource isn't already available, you can request it, and cost reimbursement is available.

    Attendance at industry conferences is encouraged, as is being vocal in the industry via blog writing, networking, speaking at some of these conferences or talks, and more. The company also encourages innovation, so if you're looking for opportunities to work with new and ever-changing technology, you'll find this to be a fantastic place.

    Management encourages open-door communication, and prides itself (as it should) on giving every member of the team a voice. They want everyone to feel involved in the current and future state of Acumium. I sincerely appreciate being able to offer up ideas freely and know they will be given serious consideration.

    Every day you'll find people working hard, always ready to help each other out if the need arises, because we're all committed to providing the best possible product for the client and their customers.

    You'll also find a lot of laughter, a relaxed dress code, games of ping pong, monthly staff breakfast/lunches, spontaneous group outings, visits from four-legged guests, and occasionally the need to dodge a nerf dart, just to name a few of the additional perks.

    I feel the CEO and management truly care about each and every team member, and it shows.

    Cons

    As of yet I honestly haven't experienced any cons. I suppose for some, the fast pace could be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage innovation and the open communication to keep improving processes. I agree with the other reviewers who advised staying protective of the excellent culture, it's part of what makes Acumium one of the best places to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Acumium (Madison, WI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    My experience was a little unique, because I had two interview processes: the position I ended up accepting was not the one I initially interviewed for. For the position I ultimately took, interview was a combination of 1:1 conversation with the CEO and a tryout. Tryout consisted of a creative/design briefing on-site, followed by my doing work on a hypothetical project on my own time over about a week's time, and then an on-site review of the work by members of the team who would be consuming it. I believe the tryout model is used for many, if not most, positions at Acumium these days. I like the model, because I think it allows both the employer and potential employee to get a sense for each other in a way that a standard Q&A interview doesn't.
