I worked at Acuitus full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

A small-team work environment. You feel like you're working towards a greater goal.
If you achieve, you are given greater responsibility. Compensation is top-notch.

Cons

Very strict about timesheets.
Everyone works very hard, and work-life balance is a bit of an issue.
Communication is not always clear. I didn't always know what I should be working on.

Advice to Management

Be a little more receptive to feedback, there isn't a clear way for employees to provide advice to the management. This can lead to built up frustration.

    I worked at Acuitus full-time

    Pros

    I concur with other reviews that it is in fact working on interesting problems and do have great ideas - very bad management and implementation.

    Cons

    Agree with other reviews that senior management is severely flawed. Do not have any managerial experience, training, and background. Agree with other reviews that they clearly do not like internal criticism and reflection and have a very arrogant and condescending attitude toward people that work beneath them. Not at all receptive to feedback, no clear way to provide advice to the management. Very dictatorial and lacking of a feedback loop. Low IT pay commensurate with competition and overall market value. I would definitely concur that you should definitely talk to others prior to working here. Work life balance is a major issue.

    Advice to Management

    Better top down communication; better company culture. Better mechanism for providing constructive criticism.

    I worked at Acuitus full-time

    Pros

    Content developers are very smart, experienced, and passionate. Some world class developers. The interactive nature of the product is by far better than other learning products. Doing interesting research and analysis into the cognitive science, information retention, and reinforcement.

    Cons

    There are serious issues with management trust, micro-management, and control. Sometimes senior software engineers were asked to build custom server hardware configs. Lots of last minute new features and design changes. Talk to a few previous employees before considering positions here.
