Pros

the company pays good salay and benefits are also fairly good. To a great extent work environment is organised. Since as a consultant your weekends are long so the vacation time turns out to be quite adequate. HR communication is fabulous - you are sent several reminders about any changes that are required from you.

Cons

The appraisal process is not really in place so the progression in your career is based more upon what your account manager percieve about you. Though the recognition of your efforts is there but the feedback will not be given until you ask for it specifically.

Advice to Management

they need to get more organised in reviewing the work of their employees

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Opportunities for promotion and learning are there but must be taken, they are not given you. You will learn to work and you will learn how to work in a business that takes itself seriously as a business.

    Cons

    Opportunities for promotion and learning are there but must be taken, they are not given you. There is little to no structured format for cross-training and this can make succession planning challenging - especially at the account level.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the dissemination of knowledge as was recently begun and continue to work to break down the silos between the different LOBs within ACS. Please, please continue with the creation of a unified BRAND for ACS...we MUST have one in order to hold our multivariate cultures together.

    Pros

    You are given the opportunity to expand and it's also a great opportunity to gain your teflon coating. There are silos of great people and managers. I viewed it as a great training ground in many ways. It is growing, so there are plenty of opportunities to grow with it.

    Cons

    it can be a "throw your neighbor under the bus" atmosphere. they will burn you out. as long as you're willing to sacrifice your health and family, they will let you. very poor work/life balance. There is management in some areas that have reached their Peter Principle, but continue to be promoted because of who they know.

    Advice to Management

    advance people on their skills not on who they are related to or know.
