    Pros

    I enjoy working at ACS. There were layoffs a while back, due to a large project coming to a close. But since then, the company has re-focused and really has been employee focused again. There was a recent company-wide meeting that included the main topics of goals, employee empowerment and relationships. All topics resonated well and I believe has given employees even more ACS pride and job satisfaction.

    Additional pro – Love the new basketball hoop at the Manufacturing office, it’s great to be able to go outside and shoot during lunch.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any right now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! The grass is greener where you water it - it will need some maintenance and care, but let's continue to keep it greener on this side!

    I have been working at Affiliated Construction Services full-time

    Pros

    After joining the team, I was welcoming quickly. I was trusted right away with large projects and was challenged and respected from from the start. Training was quick and gave me time to jump right in. Not only does ACS have a mission and values, they actually follow them and was pretty clear from the time that I started.

    Cons

    I'll be honest, it was hard to think of a negative. The only thing I could think of is: Holidays are minimal, however benefits are great.

    I worked at Affiliated Construction Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work with good people, sadly most are no longer there. Benefits were fair, building was in a convenient location.

    Cons

    A very poorly run company that put all their eggs in one basket. In the past 18 months they have went through 3 work force reductions, eliminating more than 1/2 of their work force. Good engineers and designers with knowledge and have kept the ones that can't manage a project with out hand holding. When there I spent 60% traveling out of state for sometimes weeks at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out, you're losing control!

    I worked at Affiliated Construction Services full-time

    Pros

    Interesting project based work, Great company culture, Opportunity to work with a wide variety of multi-national companies, Employees are some of the best at what they do.

    Cons

    They have now had three rounds of work force reductions in under a year. Travel opportunities often come up with little to no warning. In general, employees tend to either burn out or leave and find a job that requires less travel and pays more.

    Advice to Management

    I loved the atmosphere that was created at ACS. The core values really resonated with me. My advice is to figure out what is going wrong at ACS and fix it quickly. Morale is really hurting after three lay-offs and I hope that you can pull out of this tail spin because this really is an interesting and challenging place to work.

    Pros

    Work from home, very little supervision. Decent benefits and compensation. Good people at the lower levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Very little direction or management;. Account management team left a lot to be desired. Managed by fear, not by encouragement or by promise of career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Please review who your team leaders are

    Great Experience. Pay was average. The benefits at the company were very good. The 401K was average as per most companies.

    Cons

    Long hours without many opportunities for advancement. Management did not seem to be very aware of what the client's needs were, It was all about the money.
