There are quite a few excellent people to work with at ACLA
Support from management
There can be too much gossip, male egos get in the way of comfortable work environment.
Freedom to work independently
Yes after a while, however managers may come in after okaying a project and reverse all decisions because they get insecure and did not think clearly through their orders/ trust their employees.
Communication is challenging. There is a very openly secretive manner in which managers communicate with their favorite employees
No. Women are limited in their options, and there was a great deal of unprofessional/ borderline sexual harrasment behavior from the managers. It's a boys club.
Attitude towards older colleagues
One older employee. Some co workers make fun of him/ don't appreciate him. Could be better.
only certain employees are given training
Overall compensation for your work
Compensation is ok. There is a wage gap for sure. Not really many benefits but it's better than many other places.
Office / Work Environment
overall good facilities, good tools and dust collection system. Option of standing desks in office. Good lighting.
There is a waste removal service that supposedly recycles. There is a great deal of wood and foam processing.
Men with families are considered. Other than that it is expected that you put in overtime to meet deadlines as needed. I was often prohibited from getting time off for a wedding or vacation.
Yes. The company is one of the better ones in the industry.
If you stay around long enough it's hard to get laid off, this managerial behavior has its moments of failing because quite a few employees who are detrimental to the company stay on and do more damage than good.
There are not any employees or clients who have disabilities. But everything is on the same level so it is accessible.
Yes, they are very vigilant about osha regulation. Clear signage and safety equipment are provided. Regular mandatory training. Overall, best OSHA compliance I have seen.
At first yes. I had to learn the industry and specific technical details and protocols but after a while it got mundane. I asked for cross training and they denied me.
Inclusive / Diverse
Not a lot of diversity. A couple people of color, A few women. They could work on diversity. I noticed that you had to be a guy, in order to have your ideas taken seriously.
