    With any growing company you are going to experience growing pains from time to time. However, the management t team is dedicated to continually improve its processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

      No opinion of CEO

      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.

      Cons

      The cons of this company, are the same as cons for any other government contracting company - Some clients are stricter than others. While management is consistently great, if you have a bad customer that can make your life difficult - Some clients have awesome offices, some are just terrible and old - While your work schedule is pretty flexible, it's not as flexible as working in the private sector would...

      Advice to Management

      Continue to invest in your employees at the same rate you are now, even as you grow bigger. Continue to go after more interesting and diverse opportunities. I think a lot of government contracting companies offer a lot of the same things, but Acuity is a bit different because of how much it invests back in it's employees and tries to improve their lives. Please don't lose that.
