    I worked at ACN full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flex schedule, didn't have to be there until 9AM. Benefits and pay were great and I had plenty of vacation time. People in my dept were outstanding to work with and love to help each other out.

    Cons

    Company went through a year of layoffs and the following year, positions started getting eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more forthcoming with what's going on. Build trust with the employees and they will do better for you and may not leave at the first sign of layoffs.

    I worked at ACN (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None...well one....for those of you that learn from your mistakes this is a great place to fail at life and in the future you can look back and see what you have learned from making a horrible decision to give these wannabes the time of day

    Cons

    A big joke. Uneducated people pretending to be intelligent so other uneducated people can spread this joke around. I hope this ACN “company” is not a thing still...probably changed their company name to another pyramid disaster. Get a real job, this is not a job this is straight up laziness...

    Advice to Management

    Quit before you become discovered. Find an actual career. Stop lying to yourself and others. Fake money isn’t everything. Stay humble...

    Pros

    Great company that supports the people who work for ACN. You have to work to build up your client base. Too many people think it's magic but once you have done the hard work there is an incredible pay off

    Cons

    There are no cons if you realize it's a business. How many companies cost $499 and you have your own Website. You work with billion dollar companies and you save people money on services that you pay for every month for the rest of everyone's life. I saved $100 a month on my cell service that's $1,200 a year!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work I appreciate what you do for us.

    I worked at ACN (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have nothing positive to say about this company, it is the epitome of a pyramid scheme. What a horrible business model.

    Cons

    Pyramid Scheme. It’s the energy and telecommunications equivalent to Amway. The weekly “training” is nothing more that cult like brainwashing.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a legitimate commission structure and stop changing IBOs for training
