I have been working at Acquity Group full-time (More than a year)

-Awesome company events
-benefits are ok
-casual dress at work

Cons

-not very stable

Advice to Management

Hire some industry experts in IT consulting that have experience with change management and larger organizations to make sure the company goals are in mind and to get a different point of view. It seems as if higher Mgmt consists of all friends who have know each other from the beginning so I believe it's harder to think outside of the box.

    I worked at Acquity Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good culture
    - Lots of food
    - Some cool company events
    - Great clients
    - Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Bad if you want to be a hardcore Java programmer. A lot of the work, especially when you're fresh out of college, involves HTML and Java scriptlets. You don't really get your hands dirty with too much logic if you're a back-end developer. On the other hand, the HTML/CSS/JS is done by AG's great front-end team, so if you're a front-end developer this is a good place for you. Also a good place for business analysts and strategists.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to what your employees want in terms of their career paths.
