    I worked at Acentia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company was transparent.
    Interacted with me only when needing information from me dealing with benefits and payroll questions.

    Cons

    Not providing raises or bonuses during my tenure.

    Advice to Management

    I did like the transparency however not checking in with employees on the well being and status of the contract job was troubling.

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

    Pros

    They've managed to get some good contracts, so there's good opportunities as a government contractor. The actual positions have much less to do with Acentia and much more to do with whatever team you get placed on.

    Cons

    Ever since they were bought by Maximus, they do not care about employees. You are simply a number to them. Neither management nor HR communicate effectively and then penalize you for things they never bothered to tell you. If I didn't love my job and the team I work with (NOT all acentia), I would be out of there in a heartbeat.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people and not like a means to an end (government contracts) and you'd be very surprised by the bump in performance.

    Pros

    Interesting, relevant work. The contracts they inherited from the companies they acquired are good.

    Cons

    The company does not value employees. It's like pulling teeth to get any recognition for your hard work and the benefits get worse every year. By far the worst health package options I have ever encountered.

    "Company policy"

    Former Employee - Bo Developer in Falls Church, VA
    Former Employee - Bo Developer in Falls Church, VA

    Pros

    Work Flexibility, Work from home

    Cons

    Very poor Health Insurance, Not much good other benefits as well, too much politics in team

    Advice to Management

    Management should change their management style. Manager only listen to lead who belongs to same country. Manager never set up any communication with individual employee. They only trust certain people of team. Very polluted environment and Lot of back biting each other. I hope Upper management really look after this and try to improve this micromanagement.
