    I have been working at Acuity full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits? Well, I don't even use the benefits so now I really can't think of any pros.

    Cons

    Management does not know how to talk to their employees. Some are rude and condescending and lack the necessary soft skills in order to relate to their team. The focus is more on when something is done wrong rather then when something is done right. If an employee gets kudos from their client and the manager knows about it, the manager is tight lipped and they don't extend any applaud or appreciation but let something go wrong, they are quick to "meet with you." Terrible management approach. "Leadership" lacks diversity...not gender but rather race. There is only ONE African American male manager in the entire company, no black women at all. They have this guys picture on several company sites to try and sell diversity but that doesn't fool anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Get it to together

    Pros

    Because this company is on the smaller size they are able to do some nice things for employees like birthday gifts and events. Benefits are inexpensive and the 401k match is good.

    Cons

    Small company that is trying to grow but doesn't seem to be gaining new clients as rapidly. To make up for that they operate much like a staffing agency for the government clients where relationships have been fostered. There is a 'butts in seats' mentality but little emphasis on quality of workforce.

    -The dental insurance only covered a few dentists in my area...this was not a big issue for me, but I did know of a few people having to switch family dentists because they didn't take their insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Acuity's culture is one of the best I've seen; I don't have any "advice" per say....just keep continuing to take great care of your employees
