    I have been working at Acosta full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of great people, some bad apples. Getting into the Leadership & Development tract will give you insight into several areas of the company. Outside field reps have a flexible schedule, great for working parents

    Cons

    Difficult to move up the ladder unless you have friends to put in a good word for you, regardless of experience or work ethic. Cliques are hard to break into. Pay scale is awful, raises are meager, few and far between

    Advice to Management

    Not enough quality people in Human Resources to handle number of employees in a timely manner. Starting salaries seem to stay the same for too long, no incentive to stay in company. Stop following the competition and become the leader within the industry.

    I worked at Acosta full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedual, are some good people to work with.

    Cons

    No concern for preformance or years with company. All decisions are made in Jacksonville local managers are left out of the loop. Company is expanding too quickly and in doing so has to cut costs, by eliminating full time workers with full benefits, they replace with part time employees who receive no benefits but are expected to work full time. At interview I was told not to expect a raise because it would not happen.

    Advice to Management

    Let the local managers manage their own people, they know who performs and who abuses the system. Treat employees as an asset not as a cost to the company. If an employee is a possible lawsuit they remain employed even though they do not do their job year after year. On the other hand if you work hard and effciently and receive awards you are the first to go as you will move on to another job and probably not be a threat.
