Pros

Great company who cares about the communities it is involved with. ACS is remaining strong and healthy even in a bad economy. I don't know of very many Fortune 500 companies where the CEO has a call with the Top 1000 managers of the company to share information and answer questions. Very personal and tries hard to communicate to the leadership team then encourages them to communicate with their people.

Cons

Would like better health insurance

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best reason to work at ACS is the people. As long as you stay away from upper management the people are very friendly, hard working, and a joy to work with.

    Cons

    Downsides - could be laid off at any time, no succession planning, bad healthcare, pathetic company match on retirement acct, bad company morale, merit increases and bonuses are poor (assuming you even get one). Once you get past the lower levels of management no one seems to think past the current quarter. No long term plans to improve things.

    Advice to Management

    You need to concentrate on other things besides the stock price.

    "ACS leads the "race to the bottom" in Service Delivery."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    the pay is adequate, if you are willing to risk being unexpected unemployed at any time without performance reason

    Cons

    They lead the "race for the bottom" in service delivery - aiming to get to the pain point well below client satisfaction and just barely above the point where their clients sue them for default and non-performance. They clearly understand their plan to cut into bone and are executing the plan effectively.

    Advice to Management

    In the long run, you are destroying the future of the company. You are already seeing the results of your strategy with failed renewals, poor client references, and consistently losing new logo business deals. You have lost the respect of clients and lost the heart of your employees and mid-level leadership. You cannot survive in the market without both.
