    I have been working at Acosta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you dont like sitting at a desk all day this is a great job.

    Cons

    Sitting in traffic and they only reimburse for start of day after 20 miles (even though you may live 2 miles from base office. they consider first 20 miles a standard commute. nothing for end of day trips. also the mileage doesn't cover the gas spent.

    Advice to Management

    don't cut corners with monthly conference calls, it creates a distance between the two. you should make it a priority to see your team every month to ensure the sense of being part of a team is never vacant. also its important for all employees to see the faces of fellow team members that they will be helping out.
