    I have been working at ACCS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Anything is to be negotiable prior to joining company. Immigration sponsorship.

    Cons

    Once you are in you never get communication other than to fill Time sheets. Only person who can take decision is CEO and he never speaks and send his reps to the table.

    Never expect pay rise. No encouragement or involving employee in any company activities.

    Advice to Management

    Treat engineers as Talent instead of a money making objects.

    I worked at ACCS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of.

    Cons

    After hiring you, there will be no one to address your concerns. Emails or phone calls will never be answered. No performance reviews, no pay hikes, worst benefits. It was a nightmare working for this company. I wasted my valuable time working with ACCS.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees. They are all skilled and deserve respect. Listen to what they have to say, well, atleast sometimes.

    Pros

    Every other agency will get more benefits than you will get.

    No pay rise or performance evaluation
    Management is also very slow

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees more in terms of benefits

    I have been working at ACCS (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have learned a lot through my experience with ACCS. I have had the opportunity to take on many different challenges and I have gotten a lot of valuable experience.

    Cons

    I am not exactly sure what is expected of me as far as my performance. I would prefer a better explanation of my scope of work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be courteous to employees. Put clients and employees first and the rest will follow.

    I worked at ACCS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company Car, Company Equipment, Good Pay and Benefits. Christian Values.

    Cons

    Long Work hours, Unorganized Daily job assignments, Unrealistic expectations. The management is so out of touch with the work load I was miserable here. As a new hire I got little to no training. I worked hard to learn what little that I did.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's instead of rail roading over them. They are telling you customer concerns don't just brush them off as unimportant that's how you lose business. If you don't have the resources for the job tell them so. Honestly pays in the end.

    I worked at ACCS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. You will be happy first day that you have a job and things will be positive given you join the company with an optimistic attitude.
    2. You will get free food may be once a year !
    3. Thats all you get here !

    Cons

    Before you jump to any conclusion. These con opinions represent a big sample size of employees here.
    Keep trying to contact the mangement for your questions or concerns, they will respond only if they wish to. Have very inexperienced HR to do your yearly review. Extreme nepotism. People looking for sponsorship through this company, keep this company at the bottom of your priority. They will frustrate you (they are extremely talented at this). Minimal diversity of employees. All they care about is how much they can make money off of you. They do not have any dedicated work of their own. All they do is proviode manpower to Caterpillar. You will struggle to get paid for 40 hours since work is project based may be not all the time but sometimes. EMPOYEE REVIEW process is the one which you would not want. STRONG ADVISE

    Advice to Management

    If you are trying to make money based on contracting employees to Caterpillar, please make sure you are not exploiting their visa status for your greedy needs.
    JIM MONTELEGO is the CEO (I dont know of what, at least thats what he calls himself) - your company is making money from hardworking dedicated local and foreign nationals. Please ensure you relieve employees all the trouble they have to go through dealing with you and your management, so that they can actually focus on work and help your customer Caterpillar !
