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.
On-Boarding Coordinator - National Service Desk (Former Employee) – Virtual – April 11, 2014
I thought this company has a lot of potential to be a great all around employer. The position was a government contractor position, so it took a long time for the security clearance to go through (4 months). Training was a bit slow also. However, I loved the idea of working from home. Would have liked more communication with my immediate supervisor to discuss ongoing projects, team dynamics, training and expectation. I learned a lot about IT methodologies and the function of a government help desk. I'd rather work in an office again.
working from home
limited communication with management and stagnant training
