    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ACRA Control full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    collegues are nice, as in many companies. Annual bonus (but low). Flexible hours. Benefits (health insurance, pension scheme). Objectives: money (American style)

    Cons

    high pressure, managers that are not managers, enginneers working as product leaders and cheated to complete the management role, engineers do everything and managers cheat them. Bureaucracy. Poor technical resources (no proper lab) and training. Overcontroled work

    Advice to Management

    care engineers, improve environment, managers should work as managers and engineers as engineers

    I have been working at ACRA Control full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working time, interesting projects and few real experts from which you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    decision makers, lack of perks, strange corporate rules blocking improvement and ruining motivation. Too much propaganda not enough engineering. Salary.

    Advice to Management

    Outsource the Software Development. Promote hard working people, not a "yes man" characters. There is definite shift from old days, but it looks like it is going into wrong direction (bureaucracy)

    Pros

    ACRA Control is a great place to work w/ great staff and management. The company is very structured and offers growth!

    Cons

    I would say that the only downside of ACRA Control would be that it is a smaller company which sometimes has small gossip and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice i would give to the managers is to continue what you are doing. Stay true to your employees and they will do the same.

    Pros

    Salary is decent although the health benefits are terrible.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, management is terrible. There is no performance reviews. It's an unorganized environment & has a high turn around rate of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a real manager, don't use existing employees and assign them as a manager. Reflect on why you have such a high refresh rate of employees?
