    Pros

    Great Director/Management team and co-workers. Love the culture in this department. Everyone works together to get the job done! Director does a great job of keeping team motivated and making us feel appreciated!

    Cons

    There is a lot of pressure to do more with less. Systems are not up to speed and make doing your job difficult. Process and system improvement recommendations are made but never put into place (they don't want to spend the money).

    Advice to Management

    You have to spend money to make money! The cost of keeping your systems current is part of business. Show more appreciation to those that do all the nitty-gritty work to keep the customers happy!

    Pros

    There are no pros other than salary, which you must work over 60 hours a week to ‘earn’! Would give 0 stars or negative stars if possible.

    Cons

    Healthcare Vertical is ran under terrible leadership. If your not a friend of the leaders you must be scared for your job. Unethical, unprofessional and unqualified people are running this vertical to the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of healthcare vertical leadership and hire qualified individuals who know how to do their jobs.

    Pros

    Salary, bonuses and benefits

    Cons

    Besides financially this place is soul crushing. The first good thing was that John roselli is no longer the president which was a step in the right direction. Some verticals thrive however the healthcare vertical is a mess under the direction of the VP. Faculty is over paid and expense things like alcohol, condoms and clothes and it gets approved. The VP has no clue what he’s even paying the faculty to the point that layoffs have to happen due to not making enough profit.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees instead of laying them off due to your mistakes with payroll or because you don’t like them as a person. It’s childish and unprofessional. Also stop hiring your friends that are not qualified for director roles

    They leave you alone to do your job as you see best.

    Sometimes there is a bit too much needless policies and procedures, as is true with most large organizations.

    Pros

    ACAMS prior to being acquired by Becker an organization focused on the success of our members. See Cons section for full story.

    Cons

    I am writing this review on behalf of ACAMS, which now operated by Becker Professional Education, both owned by AdTalem, formly Devry Education Group.

    ACAMS was a thriving, interesting and fulfilling place to work. After Becker acquired ACAMS, the company culture completely tanked. The culture is completely unsupportive, the bottom line is the only thing that matters and they stretch you so thin that you don't have time to think. There has been a mass exodus from ACAMS since being acquired by Becker/Adtalem/Devry.

    Advice to Management

    Sell ACAMS to someone else who might actually care.
