    I have been working at Aktion Associates full-time

    Pros

    This company is as laid back as they get and you can pretty much get paid for just showing up and doing the bare minimum. There are decent size bonuses throughout the year.

    Cons

    Management caves to loudest whiners and never progresses company forward. The company sells Software and It Services but the entirety of management are ex-sales and not Application Consultants or IT Personal. All there priority and decisions are in the heat of the moment and based on how they feel at that moment and not in logic. No structure to allow for employee growth.

    Advice to Management

    Follow Industry standards for things such as project planning and create a more friendly environment instead of one where management is made fun of for their emotional and irrational decisions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Aktion Associates for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Working remote allows me to run errands, work out, and make my own schedule

    Cons

    No processes, company is all about selling to Sage clients, Scott is all about sailing his boat and billing the crap out of their clients.

    Advice to Management

    This company has no room for advancement, they aren't even close to a technology company just a billing shop... Stay Away!!

    I have been working at Aktion Associates full-time

    Pros

    Working from home is an option.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. You are rewarded based on billable hours, not skills. Sage products are showing their age & not innovative.

    Advice to Management

    Base part of an employee's review and bonus on customer satisfaction, improving skills & stretch goals. Current pay structure encourages people to go after low hanging fruit & unable to support complex issues.

        Pros

        This company let sales reps treat their territory as if it were their own business. No micromanaging.

        Cons

        Disparate workforce made developing social contacts a challenge. Too many divisions for management to fully understand market conditions.

        I worked at Aktion Associates full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Mostly flexible schedule Lots of potential for the company to capitalize on Stable in established environments/platforms

        Cons

        Unable to plan for appropriate growth Not focused on education to keep employees up to date on technology Stable environments/platforms were in aging technologies Goals changed every year, with no focus on following through

        Advice to Management

        Limit the acquisitions in the stale technology areas. Put a stake in the ground for a newer platform(s)that has growth potential - and then invest in it. Aktion is really good on some older platforms - put that same effort into a couple of newer ones to attract new business.
