I worked at Acquinity Interactive full-time (More than a year)
not a lot of responsibility
easy-going atmosphere, casual environment
fun holiday parties and Friday happy hours
strong work culture, weekly agendas and meetings to ensure employees are productive
very unprofessional management style
unethical legal and executive behavior
best practices are questionable
glass ceiling for females, not much opportunity for advancement
Advice to Management
Promote a higher standard for more ethical corporate culture from within the organization.
Promised 401K benefits to entire company for several years and never delivered.
I have been working at Acquinity Interactive full-time (More than 3 years)
Initial Salary Good Don't expect much more
Call center employee turnover is ridiculous. CIO/Owner will sit down majority of IT employees individually a make them feel useless and threaten your job for no reason, regardless of your talent level. HR does nothing to improve benefits. When they hire all the ads say excellent benefits - there are none. No 401k, no profit share, Culture is horrible.
Advice to Management
Get a new HR dept. that knows how to provide a good culture. Owners don't care about employees.

The only upside was getting paid $15 an hour .
The lab section was the worst. The team leaders were kids who had huge egos and knew squat about handling people. The employees were miserable in my dept and loathed their job (most, not all). You were constantly scrutinized, monitored and basically walking on eggshells for fear of getting written up for something as simple as using the restroom. You're breaks were never consistent, the work environment was stressful and god forbid you were joking too much with a coworker in between calls, you were written up and promptly relocated to another work station.
The calls themselves were pitiful because we're taking inbound calls for people claiming a gift basket when all they're doing is eventually getting looped into buying something. We had to "review" a supposed online survey they took which asked way too much psychographic information bordering on intrusive. The key question that made the difference was asking if the caller had a credit card, bank debit card, both or neither. If they had both and not a prepaid card, you're forced to pitch a 14 day trial for $3.95 and get the credit card info on the spot while fighting objections.
Its a joke of a sales job and i would never put it on my resume because its such an illegitimate practice that has changed names several times (last known as Edison).
Stay far away from Aqcuinity, especially if you have a small child under the age of 3, because if you're out caring for your child, they don't accept that as a legitimate absense, regardless of documentation and you'll soon find yourself out of a job like me.
I'm actually I got fired from this hell hole because i found a job with a company that pays the same and cares about their workers.
