    I worked at Accurate Background full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free coffee and flexible schedule. Friends that you will have for life.

    Cons

    Too many to list Morale is very low. Employees are not appreciated. No work life balance. You are mandated to work overtime most of the year. If you don’t you’re not a team player. Excessive micromanaging. You are always being watched and management reminds you constantly. They are also extremely petty. They make you feel like you are worthless even though you meet quotas and have high ratings. Unless you are a favorite nothing you do will ever be enough. They even go as far as monitoring who you have lunch with and talk with on breaks. If you talk with someone they don’t want you to you will be pulled aside and advised that there was an issue that has been escalated and to be more watchful moving forward. Hypocritical management. They tell you not to interact and watch what you say while they gossip and use profanity at their desks. They take every opportunity to belittle people. Promotions based on politics not skill level Favoritism. Unless you are a favorite you are screwed.

    I have been working at Accurate Background full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits you will not find any where (not even government), high % of healthcare is paid by them, company contributes to HSA plan. Management that works with you. Open to suggestions to help grow business. PTO in first day!!!! If you like OT you'll love busy season, open buffet for OT plus OT incentives, gift cards. Open door policy. This is the best company I have worked for in my 37 years in the worm force. Do you job, be flexible as we are always changing and you will be rewarded. Can't say enough on how they ha e worked with me in very difficult situations with my family. They do it right.

    Cons

    Need to start refreshes classes earlier if not do them throughout the year outside bush season.

    Pros

    I'm not sure there really are any. Unless you're a director, you're disposable.

    Cons

    Business entity as a whole, business model, and method of consistently employing people under qualified in managerial roles because they're easy to control and manipulate.
