    I have been working at Acro full-time

    Pros

    Acro is making great strides to upgrade its systems and processes, this will pay huge dividends in 2018.

    Cons

    At times some of Acro's internally developed systems are driven too much by client requests and misunderstandings of comparable outside systems. This will lead inexorably to mission creep.

    Advice to Management

    Develop "The Acro Way" and focus on internal consistency for systems and processes. Where ideas and suggestions come up (internal or external) seek true best-practices.

    I worked at Acro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They work with people who have past convictions

    Cons

    The leadership is a joke and they are a very small fish in a huge pond

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been with the company for several years does not mean they are leadership material! Some of the people in positions of leadership are intimidating and controlling on a daily basis. They show their best side in front of their bosses. Don't be fooled!

    I worked at Acro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people I got to meet while working here were the only positives about this job.

    Cons

    I refer to this former job as "THEE job from H*E*L*L!" I would give it negative stars if I could. Management is unprofessional, childlike and lazy (this was at the local level - 1 in particular from the battle Creek area). Corporate doesn't help the local offices much in terms of support through IT. They ask for concerns and never act on them. If you voice your opinion, even in a professional manner, your "position is eliminated". RUN as fast as you can from here! 16, 17 and even 18 hour days, (almost daily) being salaried, averaging out to less than minimum wage, while management complains about putting an 10 hour day once a week..I could go on and on about the negative qualities here.

    I have been working at Acro (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly Staff, Anytime there is a problem, if there is a problem, they waste no time correcting it.

    Great Pay, had several offers from different companies but Acro offered much more than anyone else for the exact same position. Originally I was against contracting, But these guys make contracting worth while. Other companies out there are really not worth it. I took a chance, moving from a full time secure federal positions. No regrets.

    Cons

    Not too many cons, enjoyed my time.. I can say that you don't speak to them much after hire but they have taken steps to better themselves in that department over the last few months. I get monthly touch bases now and calls just to make sure everything is going well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I've worked with other contracting agencies and there are some really crap companies out there. You guys are great.
