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

    Pros

    Telecommuting, flexibility and middle management were all positives.

    Cons

    Family run business, children in positions that they are no where near equipped for. Have no "outside" of Acro experience/skills in sales, business and business management. No vision or tolerance towards differing opinions. Discipline doled out publicly, angrily and at times without foundation.

    I worked at Acro full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They get contracts to fill, but thats the most they service their employees

    Cons

    Fail to properly account for their employees money, I was a highly paid employee that got $300 pay checks, due to thier louse accounting practices, Because of this i had to find a new employer, ACRO remember your product is your employees, if you treat them bad then your product sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your accounting department and managers.

    I worked at Acro full-time

    Pros

    I got a paycheck and some insurance benefits

    Cons

    Management makes promises, but doesn't keep them. Technology is out of date and next to useless, making jobs way harder than they need to be. Doesn't give employees what they deserve for the work they do. It's depressing to work here and management either doesn't know or doesn't care. Not sure which is worse.

    Advice to Management

    People don't quit the job. They quit the company.

    I have been working at Acro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Acro has consistently been recognized locally and nationally as one of the 101 Best & Brightest Companies to work for by the National Business Resources Association. This award is bestowed based on commitment to best practices in HR and by surveying not only the company, but also the employees and gaining and evaluating feedback related to the company's HR practices. Receiving this award is a great distinction as literally thousands of companies vie for this honor and only the top 101 receive this prestigious recognition! I am proud to work for a company committed to making this company one of the Best & Brightest places to work!

    Cons

    Every company has something it can work on, as we must never cease striving to improve! But overall this is a great company, providing a great work environment, and the opportunity to grow one's skill set both personally and professionally!

    I have been working at Acro full-time

    Pros

    The employee relations specialist is always pleasant. However, the responses coming from him sound like he's been programmed.

    Cons

    When I initially started working with this company, I had to give a unpleasant review due to the way my employment was handled.
    Recently, they discovered an error in payment for the company they placed me with. Instead of correcting the error with the company, they deducted from my recent paycheck. In other words, I worked for free for a period of time. Today is August 26, 2016; the error occurred June 19, 2015!!
    You have to wonder, who's doing their books in accounting?

    My advice to anyone looking at ACRO for a job; keep looking. You will not regret it.

    I would leave them, but I would have to quit my current job for 90 days before I could go through another contract company.
