    Pros

    Everyone friendly it honestly like a family environment. A lot of perks for the employees and the CEO is Awesome she come by to each individual and checks on how they are and to make sure everything is ok. I never had any CEO come by t and do that and I have worked for big companies. This is my honest truth and opinion about the company. I love my job and my team..

    Cons

    None at all Love it here

    I worked at ACI Specialty Benefits full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Parking is plentiful. Hey, that matters. 2. Some talented people have come and gone. The org was lucky to have them. 3. Pet-friendly, dogs (and a kitten) have been welcomed by about 95% of staff. 4. The customer base (external clients) are great to work with and will appreciate you if you excel at your job. That is rewarding. 5. The original vision of the org was probably good and worked for many years. 6....

    Cons

    Remember the old children’s game of 'telephone’? ….. Whispering, gossiping, assuming, resulting in a totally garbled message - that basically sums up the daily office experience at ACI/Leverage Life. Unfortunately, most of the negative reviews here and on Indeed are true. 1. The same staff repeatedly eavesdrop and gossip based on bad information, immaturity, personal insecurities, and suspicion. Instead of simply...

    Advice to Management

    1. Declare bankruptcy or sell up. Life will go on. 2. No amount of over-compensating 5-star reviews from coddled staff is going to convince this audience of the company's merits. They are too obviously contrived. 3. If the business survives the financial crisis, cull the long-time ‘loyal’ staff who are toxic influences and resist learning opportunities. 4. Eliminate the outdated DISC profile and 360 reviews....

    Pros

    There are no pros other than the fake positive reviews you’ll see all over the place so they can cover up their failures

    Cons

    1) Company is failing, just has its 2nd round of layoffs 2) There is no future there 3) The CEO is in a coward in denial, takes vacations so she doesn’t have to be there for layoffs... classy stuff 4) Shady financial stuff going on behind the scenes 5) They are not paying employees half of the time 6) Despite random perks, it was a stressful place to work even before the financial situation got this bad - formerly...

    Advice to Management

    None. You failed. Be ashamed of yourselves. The CEO should have moved on years ago and appointment a replacement leader, she didn’t.

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    They have asked execs to defer comp, good people are all leaving, they are going broke with no end in sight. CEO needs to retire immediately. Horrible benefits which they don’t have cash to pay. State needs to get involved immediately, someone please report them!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop posting fake positive reviews, liars

      I have been working at ACI Specialty Benefits

      Pros

      There are a few great people here. Fun parties and lots of free food.

      Cons

      CEO is incompetent with the business. She play favorites and definitely mistreats more than half the company.

      Advice to Management

      Retire the CEO, she’s a lawsuit waiting to happen and a joke to the establishment.

      Pros

      Competent, Caring Managers - The management chain I operate under is excellent. My supervisor is direct, honest, and genuinely cares about each and every member of his team. I can’t even begin to say how rare that is in a corporate environment. This extends all the way up the chain to the very top, with the CEO regularly taking time out of her day to ask how employees are doing. Healthy Work Environment – My coworkers...

      Cons

      Health and financial benefits are not always as competitive as I'd like. This said, 401k and healthcare contributions were both increased this year, and there does seem to be a concerted drive to continue this trend.

      Advice to Management

      Hold on tight to those making a positive impact in your organization. I can't say enough how amazing it is to see this much talent operating in such a healthy and open environment.

      Pros

      Since starting here, I've learned a lot from the Executive team and from my fellow peers. It's always nice to work for a company that fosters such a supportive environment for its employees. Since having started here at ACI, our benefits have only improved/grown and the company really does so much to keep up employee morale by celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, having bagel fridays, being pet friendly and having fun...

      Cons

      None to speak of as of yet. An interesting thing I've come to learn about this company is bad things are addressed quickly.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work! Appreciated your employees goes a long way.

      Pros

      Professional and welcoming atmosphere since day 1! There are so many pros to mention it's difficult to list them all. Everyone here seems to love their purpose, and coming to work everyday seems more of an enjoyment than an obligation. When you come to work knowing you're making a difference in people's lives while being surrounded by your peers who share that same enjoyment, there's nothing better! If you have an enthusiasm...

      The office could be closer to where I live. But honestly, it's the only con i could muster.

      Advice to Management

      Keep performing at a high level. Your executive poise is contagious and encourages me to keep working hard and hold myself to a higher standard. Thank you for being role models and a safe-place to communicate.

      There's just something about working for a company that has incredible culture and supportive work environment that truly makes working for this company an incredible experience. Wouldn't you agree that if you surround yourself with positive mentors and colleges that even on days when your less enthusiastic about showing up for work they truly bring you up when you aren't having the best of days and I absolutely love...

      Cons

      The company could use a little more departmental interaction from time to time to gain knowledge and gain an understanding of how things run in different departments.

      Advice to Management

      Leadership by example has been one of the most profound qualities that I've found in the management team here at ACI. You can't help but admire the work ethic and passionate drive the management team has for what they do on a daily basis. Keep up the great work.

        I have been working at ACI Specialty Benefits full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        ACI Specialty Benefits expects what any good company should. ..Professionalism, maturity, punctuality and diligence. If you have these qualities then this is a good fit for you. If you dont have these qualities, then just like every bad reviewer below, you wont make it. Its as simple as that. pros include lots of parties, tons of food, pet friendly, approachable "open door" CEO, yoga, no micro managing, small family-like...

        Employee of the quarter. I hate this tradition. So many of my hard working co workers deserve this, but have been overlooked. I wish they would get rid of this. Its bad for morale.
