Pros

NOTE: you do not normally work at the main office, you work at a contract site, so I was working in many areas of the city and enjoyed my day to day activities.

Good benefits, same as other large companies

Cons

I have only received 1 performance review and 1 raise.
Felt like a robot
Management did not approach me when there were courses available to take
No communication from management with regard to performance, or other contracts
Salaries were low
I only realized my true potential when I took a risk and applied for a position with another company that I felt sure that I wasn't qualified for, and was shocked when I got a second interview, sadly I realized that I felt incompetent due to my Acrodex experience

Advice to Management

Take some managerial courses, or communication courses
Learn how to help to make your employees feel more valuable and help them to realize their potential

    Pros

    Encouragement to develop skills
    Plenty of growth opportunity
    Wide range of knowledge on many products and services

    Cons

    Underpaid salaries (10k to 25k less then their competition...but this is why then can underbid the competition)
    Senior and Executive Management only talk to each other.
    Many employees have a terrible team attitude and aren't willing to help others
    HR and Payroll departments are incredibly incompetent

    Advice to Management

    Review salaries and promote a team atmosphere. Acrodex is a springboard into the IT world. They have high turnover because people get in, learn a ton and then get out.
