    I worked at ACT-1 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is always a wide variety of assignments with Act-1. The recruiters and placement officers are first-rate, and the company is very responsive to helping someone with things like timesheet issues, holding onto a paycheck for a personal pick-up, answering tax structure questions, etc.

    Cons

    That there isn't an Act-1 office in Nashville! -The only thing I'd say is that the pay isn't always the greatest, but it also isn't awful.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing in your Universal City office - Lisa Lucas is the best thing that ever happened to Act-1.

    I have been working at ACT-1 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Positive company, they believe in you! Excellent training. Unending financial opportunities for Account Executives. Excellent benefits. Opportunity to qualify for yearly all inclusive trip. Opportunities for growth & advancement! You can write your own paycheck & manage your own career goals at this company. Supportive management.

    Cons

    Must be full-fledged multi-tasker, focused, & in it for the long haul to succeed here! Must be able to run a full desk & be thick-skinned. You will receive great support & training from management/corporate, but you must be willing/able to be self-motivated.

    I have been working at ACT-1 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Act-1 has taught me the true value of a company when they treat their employees with respect. I have really grown as a person professionally, and have met many wonderful individuals whom I learn from every day. I look forward towards starting my career, and working along side this company!

    Cons

    I have learned a long time ago that there are no Cons, because I see cons as a pro in disguise as a lesson.

    It is a fast-paced environment, built for someone who is willing to put their 100% every day that they come in.

    Someone who may be looking for a more relaxed environment should consider looking somewhere else unless they decide that this opportunity is worth adjusting your work ethic and energy.

    Advice to Management

    Dear management,

    the effort you put into your employees is seen and appreciated. The dedication you have for your company is unique and sets you apart from other agencies. Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at ACT-1 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of nice, caring, and hard working people at this company. With some exceptions, many of the C levels are approachable and open to ideas on how to improve services to customers and the companies as a whole. Not overly competitive internally (I've seen much worse.). Relaxed atmosphere, except when there are customer emergencies. Learned a great deal about business and human relations/customer service while here.

    Cons

    Some necessary internal changes could come sooner. Your supervisor will determine how well you fair, your team's dynamic, and possibly your level of happiness. If you are lucky to have one who is good to you/advocates for you, competent at what he or she does and be willing to train you, be thankful. Compensation and benefits could be better for some, while some people are paid well for their title, duties, and if they are not in "line jobs."

    Advice to Management

    Review job titles, duties, and compensation & benefits more often. Listen to people from the ground up more often because there are good ideas waiting to be heard. Engage in greater morale building and acknowledge contributions more frequently.

    I worked at ACT-1 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible arrangement and solid benefits if needed. I created the assignment but needed to go through them to streamline cost and paper work. Their payment and reporting systems were solid.

    Cons

    None really. Best when you can create your own role.
