    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    everyone is very respectful and generally easy going, there are opportunities to work on different types of projects, and feedback is provided

    Cons

    it is a very corporate atmosphere, pay raises and bonuses are difficult to obtain lately, can become somewhat monotonous at times

    Advice to Management

    I would say that management does a good job at defining someone's role within the organization, but often makes it very difficult to move laterally within the organization.

    Pros

    None. Run. There are absolutely no positives

    Pros

    Nothing good about this company. Management does not understand the modern technology. Stay away.

    Cons

    Insane Performance review. Your work is not appreciated. No growth opportunity. Slow to respond to new technologies. They have more headcount in the company just to create a big company impression and possible increase in stock value. It is all smoke and mirror. The management hires staff without any definite work plan. The moron managers need more contractors just for political edge also to cover their mistakes and inefficiency. No culture. No team spirit. People work in their Silos. It is a big political orgy. Definitely not a place to build your career.

    Advice to Management

    Why do you need so many VPs and AVPs who are mostly ineffective and going to pull you down? Why do you need so many contractors? Get outside help to fix the corrupted system.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Pros

    It's not terrible. Benefits are a bit better than average. The ESIS division gets little respect within the company; other ACE employees appear more satisfied. Better than average computer resources

    Cons

    Overemphasis on short-term profits at the expense of investment in personnel, processes, and organization

    Advice to Management

    Sell ESIS so you can stop treating its employees like second class citizens
