    I have been working at Acuity full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have worked at Acuity since it was Heritage Insurance, so for 22 years!!! Acuity truly cares about it's employees!!! They have amazing benefits, salaries are comparable to other companies and just keep surprising their employees every year with more and more things! I don't know too many employees who actually LOOK FORWARD to go into the office, like the Acuity employees! There's a rock wall and of course, the Firm! Also, happy hours every other Thursday, but then came COVID! :-( Yet, Acuity still blesses us with other things since we aren't able to go into the office!!! Gift cards to Amazon, a holiday meal, Acuity merchandise.....Acuity is just AMAZING!!!! ACUITY ROCKS!!!!

    Cons

    No cons to Acuity at all!!!!

    Pros

    It beats being unemployed and they have decent benefits.

    Cons

    No real sense of community. Corporate doesn't do much to make employees feel like more than just a billable slot.

    I worked at Acuity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The technology used was good.

    Cons

    They changed their contractual offer with me multiple times. They brought my pay grade down many times and their excuse was "it's either this, or we have to lay you off". I had no choice but to sign again so I could continue feeding my family. I am very happy since I have left.

    I have been working at Acuity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good, personable people. Competitive salary and benefits. Awesome work life balance. Open door policy with anyone. Acuity professionals form longstanding relationships and are trusted by their clients. Meaningful missions with interesting IT work and innovative technologies.

    Cons

    Can experience different cultures between field vs. HQ. Acuity has a promising future but is currently in their awkward, mid-tier teenage growing years.

    I worked at Acuity full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly and nice CEO. Cool holiday party

    Cons

    The Business Development/Capture/Proposal departments need change. People always talk process, but no process has been set in stone as people always find a way around it. Too much drama and very unprofessional environment. You have to "fake it till you make it" in order to be somewhat successful here. Some individuals will step on others toes just to get the job done instead of working collaboratively and encouraging team work. No support from senior leadership as it is difficult to encourage new innovative ways to be successful. There is no strategy and leadership does not see the value in proper business development and capture management. Leadership would go after every RFP that drops, without even any proper preparation, which is a waste of B&P and resources. It was unfortunate that I thought I had a manager who I could trust, see as a mentor, and help me be successful within the company. Instead, this individual would talk badly about myself to other colleagues, and make false accusations and stories to make themselves look good.

    I worked at Acuity full-time

    Pros

    Small company- makes it easy to move around- IF there is an open spot. Good mobility if you get in with the inner circle. Very supportive of training.

    Cons

    Small company- there is no or limited bench, back-office processes are lacking, making those interactions slow and difficult, lots of silos- or inner cliques- great for you if you get in them, but hard to break in if you are new.
