    I worked at Acquirent for more than a year

    Pros

    Snacks, access to internet, places to eat. CEO seems a saint.

    Cons

    This company is positively bloated and absolutely stagnant from the top-down. Management acts as little more than hall-monitors--checking your demeanor for any signs of behavior that may threaten to expose their fraudulent personalities & the brown-nosing they expect while masquerading as "business professionals". My manager liked to disappear for the entirety of our work day, then would come around and give lazy...

    Advice to Management

    If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Except, there is no heat in your kitchen or you would've been fired already.

    Advice to Management

    I had a wonderful experience at Acquirent. It was my first job after graduating college and I am grateful for that because I learned quite a bit. I had 3 different roles within a year and the transition was never stressful. I always felt that I could be honest and transparent with management which is a rare quality that a company has. I was able to be multi-faceted and gain experience in multiple areas. I had a great...
