Not a good experience working for ACFB
Professional (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 5, 2012
ACFB does a great job at helping the community, but when it comes to how they treat their employees, things are not so great. Upper management (CEO, COO and the CFO especially) are not good managers of people. They may do fine with the business side, but are horrible managers.
The culture is laid back (almost too laid back at times), so if you're looking for a professional, corporate environment, this is not the place to work.
The pay is low compared to other companies and the benefits are average. However, they do offer a few more paid holidays than some.
The best part about working there was you get to help the community. The worst part is management. They all need to retire and get some new people in that know something other than foodbanking. They will smile in your face, but then stab you in the back. You can't trust them.
They also show a lot of favoritism. They do a lot of underhanded things (i.e., pay themselves bonuses, while there is a freeze on everyone else's salaries), give raises to a select few, but tell others it's against policy to give raises in the middle of the year.
It was one of the worst places to work and a lot of that had to do with my manager. I would not recommend working here unless you're just looking for a "job" until you can find a real career position. If you're a person of color, forget it. You won't move up.
flexible schedules, nice coworkers, helping the community
upper management is stuck in their ways, no room for advancement (except for a select few), low pay, benefits are average
