To be associated with some of the most talented and dedicated colleagues and to have been afforded many opportunities for personal and professional growth

Not enough people on the 'bench'

Advice to Management

Financials are very important to maintain a healthy company but without remembering the personal aspect in business will drive your employee morale very low. Find ways to more effectively manage through positive reinforcement to improve employee morale. Folks love this company but need to feel that their contributions are recognized. This is human nature. This will go a long way with all team members.

    Executive leadership has done a great job of guiding the company through some very tough times. While other companies are on the rocks, ACS continues to show that it is a strong performer.

    Pros

    Talented people can advance. Not pushing a product, but really trying to help customer solve a problem. Senior execs take you under their wing and show you how to succeed. They're honest with you about what matters.

    Cons

    Short-term thinking, little investment in things that won't pay off for a year or two. Not too much recognition of life/work balance issues.

    Advice to Management

    Take a longer view of people - don't judge them quicky by this single great deal or this single lousy quarter. Customer really trust us because of genuine expertise in their world -- don't mess with that by making us look just like the competition with generic products and people.
