Great people great environment
Senior Hardware Technician (Former Employee) –  Cochran, GAFebruary 10, 2017
Excellent benefits, good working environment, good supervision, good management, good support team, hardest part of job was this job needed several support personnel but was limited to myself, the enjoyable part was working with good people who understood that 1 person support was a rough assignment but being a professional made support of 500 plus users possible.
Pros
good year end bonuses
Cons
to much work for 1 support person

Not a great place to work if you value a good work/life balance
Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) –  Crawfordsville, INApril 24, 2016
This company has taught me so much. The demand is incredible though.The hours are long and there isn't a good work/family balance I'm thankful for the opportunity that I had but this was not the company for me with small children. My career is very important but my family will always come first.
Pros
Compensation and benefits
Cons
very long hours and very low job security

Great company overall, groups in the company could use improvement
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) –  Conyers, GAMarch 2, 2016
Acuity Brands is a awesome company that is growing at a rapid pace. The pay is competitive and the facilities are nice. The culture and consistency within management and certain leadership positions often leaves a bad taste in the mouths of the employees along with a lost sense of direction for growth within the company.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Lack of direction from management. No sense of job security.

Work people like slaves, which makes people not care

Poor communication with hourly employees, too much overtime, poor management

Other than the excessive hours it was pretty much what is expected for this type of job. Hours were irregular and pay is not up to par.

Production Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee) –  Crawfordsville, IN 47933March 19, 2017
This company isn't hard work but there is no balance between work and home. The overtime is never ending and you don't have an option to request time off.

Material Operator/Customer Care/M.A.T (Former Employee) –  Crawfordsville, INAugust 2, 2016
A typical day at Acuity would always make sure the line was set and ready to run. I've learned that you have to be organized in order to run properly. Management needs a little work. The hardest part of the job was to make sure all the parts where in to clear orders to stay running and the co-workers stay busy on the line. I enjoyed my job and the co-workers.
Pros
working with great people
Cons
the management needs work

Strong lighting conglomerate
Applications Engineer (Former Employee) –  Conyers, GAApril 2, 2012
Acuity Brands Lighting, as the name suggests, is made up of multiple business units, separated by brand and function. The majority of the business is made up by lighting fixtures with the rest in lighting controls technologies. As such, they are diversified in products and ready for swings in the construction industry.
Pros
good benefits package, profit sharing, market influence
Cons
reliant on construction industry for main business, separate business units can be isolating

Harsh environment ( what have you done for me today)
Director, Sales (Current Employee) –  USDecember 5, 2014
If you are a sales professional, the daily reporting processes will overwhelm you. The information you are required to download into Salesforce is merely your succession plan for the next person. Management more interested in collecting data for their daily beatings than looking long term.You will be required to participate in endless , meaningless conference calls that someone has scheduled because it is part of their goals and KPI ( key performance indicators) and their discretionary bonus depends on checking that box. With all the extra-curricular nonsense it is impossible to achieve your goals YOY. When you combine this with the lack of industry knowledge for the majority of new hires, especially at management levels, it is a recipe for frustration and finger pointing. If you are seriously considering working for this company, do yourself a favor and seek out a current or former employee and have an off the record conversation. You will likely hear the real "Acuity Way", as they like to call it. At some point the terrible culture outweighs the initial compensation package and you simply give up.
Pros
co-workers
Cons
management, high expectations with little to no support, listening to the sales agents constantly bicker and complain about Acuity, lack of integrity by sr. managers, job security, training for new hires that are responsible for sales and product knowledge
