if you like being stuffed in a tiny box and worked like a slave this is for you
IT Helpdesk Technician (Former Employee) – Lakewood, WA – April 7, 2017
Tiny office environment. Only 1 supervisor/lead role, so no advancement opportunities. Poorly ran & forgotten. Wages suck and raises are laughable. Work is tough due to multiple variations of call-in sites having different procedures and not aligning themselves with each other.
location sucks, pay sucks, only 2 windows in the room we worked in
Proposal Coordinator (Former Employee) – VA – September 14, 2016
No Work From Home (WFH) policy. Apparently a long time ago in a land far far away....the owner found out someone was taking advantage of the WFH policy so now he trust NO ONE. Either you come in or you do not get paid. Oh, and if there is a hurricane outside or a blizzard in the winter time, either you come in or you do not get paid. OR YOU TAKE PTO.
Service Desk Technician (Former Employee) – California – May 24, 2016
It's a 24/7 IT call center. Management doesn't really care their employees just a body in a seat or another number. Co-workers were mostly awesome. Constant calls coming in from all over the country as we started picking up more calls from other sites. High turnover rate. No 401K and low pay. Micromanaged.

HR Generalist (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – August 18, 2015
A typical day at work was assisting the HR manager with day to day duties. I learned the the HR laws and to keep the company compliant. Worked well with all my co-workers, was able to keep up moral. The hardest part of of the job was when the HR manage left the company and I had to run the Hr department until a new HR manager was hied. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with all the employees and conducing the new hire orientations.
Enjoyable place to work, People get along great, job is challenging
Network Monitoring Specialist Level II (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – August 16, 2015
A typical day is to monitor a high level network. Interact with customer to assist in completing their task. Checking the systems hourly for any faults and error situations. Working with six to eight people working as a team.
The most difficult part is getting workers to show up for work on time. Working with lower level management on fairness to all.
The most enjoyable part is interacting with co worker in a light hearted atmosphere.
IT Support (Former Employee) – Austin, Texas – March 16, 2015
When I was hired, it was for a different company. Through some legal bindings, the other company being forced out of the job area and ACET was the contractor we had to move over to, or lose our jobs. An unfair thing really, just cause the other company loved their employees and would always have someone to contact about any issue you had(if any).
I filled out my application for them and waited a response. Nothing. No one called, no one emailed. I only knew I was hired cause I came in the next work day, a Tuesday, and was told I was hired yesterday and had a verbal warning against me because I had no filled out my timecard. No information was sent to me, even though the company had ALL of my contact information. My supervisor had to send me any login credentials, since they sent that information to her instead of myself. Login credentials for things like company-given email logon, timecard logon, intranet logon.
I think a great thing is I almost got reported to the higher management when a training was supposed to be completed. But like I said, no one made any contact so I never knew.
They were there when the other contractor got kicked out (by ACET)
No communication at all, will get dinged for training you were supposed to do, when you didn't know you were supposed to do it.
