Suggestions for improvement

  • Learn to manage millennial and take our feedback. Keep things consistent, if one employee is able to work from home everyone else should be able to. Get a new GM who isn't pushing the millennial generation out the door, with an office of 50+ employees there shouldn't be only 6 millennials.

What I like about the company

I have met some great people and now consider them my family, since my family doesn't live here. Some leadership is willing to listen and help me grow in my career. The technology that they provide us with is pretty much up to date. Great company culture with work life balance. Every holiday is celebrated here with a company meal and entertainment. Overall, very comfortable work environment and work/life balance make it a great company to work for.

What I dislike about the company

Salaries are lower then national average. Local leadership does not know how to manage the millennial generation. They are not willing to listen to feedback that the younger generation brings to the table. Very stuck in the ""This is the way we have always done it"" thought process. Holding on to many workers that are retirement age, so this defers the upper movement the younger generation is trying to do. When employees make moves to stay within the company but take a different job, GM acts like a child and don't speak to you.

Company Culture

I felt respected by coworkers and supervisors alike.

Support from management

Supervisors were extremely helpful at times.

Internal Communication

Communication was fine. We had weekly conference calls, and supervisors would call with information. I had my supervisors' cell numbers, if I needed to call them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Acosta needs to promote from within. They also need to give wage raises to employees who earn them on a regular and consistent basis.

What I like about the company

I liked that I was responsible for my work schedule and that I did not have a supervisor looking over my shoulder every day.

What I dislike about the company

I disliked how expendable they made me feel when I asked for a couple weeks off to handle my house burning down. Instead of giving me the time I requested, they terminated me.
