    I have been working at Accion Labs full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work for internship or to gain some experience in IT recruitment industry.
    Employees who have written good reviews have no other place to go /work or would be typical desi's who dont get hired by other companies.

    Cons

    Having known this company from since its start up till now, nothing has changed so far in terms of Management, work environment and Salary. Though the company has grown, yet the Management is horrid, work environment is unethical and salary is low.
    CEO- extremely business minded. Own growth, gaining prominence, making money and building assets matter more than the staff's emotional, and professional needs and growth.
    Recruitment Lead-MICRO MANAGER, ABRASIVE, LACKS LEADERSHIP QUALITIES. Desperately requires lessons in SOFT/PEOPLE SKILLS. Totally UNFIT for position.
    HR and Operations -INEXPERIENCED and IMMATURE with no clue of cooperate world and policies.
    The company always hunts for CHEAP labor. Most of its work is done in India office.
    Overall, the company is nothing but a body shopper, with Management that has no idea on how to work with staff ethically and professionally. Favoritism prevails and is used in hire and fire of the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Change is required at the management level. Stop micromanaging your staff.
    Please do not justify your actions by responding to this review.

    Pros

    it is only a job

    Cons

    They are constantly looking for foreigners so that they can take advantage of that and offer poor salaries. Management does not seem to have an idea on how to work with people. Be aware that if there are problems with your pay, you will be responsible for that and management will not get involved in a timely manner. I went 2 months without pay and they didn't care for it

    I worked at Accion Labs (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Accion was an amazing place to make friends and learn teamwork, because we were all being put through the same unrealistic expectations and bad leadership.

    Human Resources was a listening ear, but they had little pull in helping the employees due to the leadership having a “my way or the highway” type attitude toward their business.

    Was a great place to make friends, but horrible work environment

    Salary was “okay” to start, but no real way to make commission because old sales practices were used and if employees did not follow, they were reprimanded, consistently....

    Cons

    Leadership, both in the office and executive were absolutely horrid. There was little sense on how to bring people together for the better of the business.

    Two meetings a day, if not more left little time to focus on your work.

    Constant interruption by management on little details (micromanagement)

    Too worried about numbers instead of the overall picture, and no real attempt to help train, just belittling employees until they had no other option than to leave.

    Training program was not quality and it was really a learn as you go job.

    Very sexist environment, all figureheads except for HR were male and had little listening ear if you were a female.

    Hours are long and grueling

    Work life balance was “preached” but never actually practiced.

    Very tension filled office life, always worrying if that day was the day you were getting fired

    Advice to Management

    Step back and really take a look at the revolving door company you are running, it may be time to review your leadership and start investing in the quality employees—if you ever get any more back, since they may have all left....

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers
    Free food
    Ok pay to start

    Cons

    The guy is charge has micromanagement as his religion. Hes always looking over your shoulder. 2 meetings a day reports and tracking every phone call. Clock in and out for everything. If you are late from lunch you will hear about it. People are to scared to complain. Everyone in the office does the exact same job. They say you cant learn to do more.

    Advice to Management

    Employee moral matters. Get a real leader not a micromanger.
