    Pros

    Acrodex is a nice place to work. Mostly great managers, the pay and benefits are competitive. Even though they are very limited, opportunities become available from time to time to move up.

    Cons

    The company has been growing but in a small pace and that can become a concern regarding job security. Some Technical Analyst positions require a lot of in and out of town traveling but some people like it and some people don't. I didn't.

    Advice to Management

    I have a long work history in IT. At Acrodex, I worked with some of the better IT people and some of the worst ones, the laziest ones.. My humble suggestion is that the hiring process should be improved to ensure knowing who really you are hiring.

    A lot of work will keep you busy as company is always looking to meet or exceed expectations.

    Cons

    No cons to report except the bureaucracy that is on most companies which makes the company moves slowly.

    I worked at Acrodex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Investment in people, good processes. Fun atmosphere most of the time
    I have worked for their competition as well and the grass is no greener elsewhere either.
    I still keep in touch with people in Calgary and they all seem pretty happy there.
    Definitely worth applying and considering a career with Acrodex

    Cons

    Their location is a little too far from downtown, but a really nice office

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more Sales staff, you have a very solid services team
    Also possibly more management staff.

    Pros

    You will learn a lot, continuing education is expected and supported. HR is actively working on increasing company morale.

    Cons

    How well you are treated will depend on your business unit and manager. Getting equipment and tools to work with is far more difficult than one would expect from an IT company.

    I worked at Acrodex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed job working independently. If you get your work done during the day, they don't mind if you kill a bit of time before you get back to the shop.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement internally. If you want to get a promotion or raise within the company you will be waiting a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing high performers from within rather than just letting them leave.
