    I have been working at Acrodex full-time

    Pros

    Able to travel for my work.

    Pros

    Good people and good environment. Help is there when you need it, i guess we call it support

    Cons

    low pay. when you compare to others in the industry iot's low. Taking advantage of recession i guess

    Advice to Management

    maybe have more full time positions than just mainly contracts. Pay increase would be nice too for long term employees

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    A great place to start your career as they will hire anyone that has minimal experience.

    Cons

    The executives play game, the directors/manager play games, the peons play games. Politics in all levels in the company. There are so many people that are on the edge of going on stress leave.

    Advice to Management

    If you can cut out the bs and groom the RIGHT people, they will be loyal.

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

    Pros

    None. Not even getting a paycheque unless you like living check to check

    Cons

    Will make you go on the road for days at a time, working many overtime hours and not getting paid for the OT at an OT rate. Have to quit to get paid!

    Advice to Management

    Fold the company or get rid of the management!

    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.
