    Pros

    The company definitely takes care of its people. PTO starting is 19 days. benefits and 401k matching are excellent. Pay/salary is wonderful. Can't complain at all. The company helps pay/can cover all of any personal advancement in education, if decided to use.

    Cons

    Older working crowd with people who have been with the company for decades. Not really a con though, it just shows how great the company is.

    Advice to Management

    None - Doing a great job

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people, friendly and supportive culture. Visionary leaders joining the company and making positive changes. Stable, KC company with strong ties to the community. 40% of profits endowed to medical research - unheard of in the financial world.

    Cons

    Lots of tenure which isn't always a bad thing. Long-time employees are willing to share their expertise. The downside would be frustration with a status quo mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to position ACI well for the future!

    Pros

    They take care of their people. Great benefits and good learning environment. They want everyone to better themselves and move their careers forward.

    Cons

    There were not many cons that come to mind. The biggest con or reason I am not working there any more is because the company relocated to Kansas City from Denver and I did not want to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing
