Absolute joke
Background Investigator (Former Employee) –  MichiganMarch 29, 2019
I'm a career Background Investigator and was recruited by ACI. Signed paperwork, provided everything needed to get going for a certain contract. Then two months of "you're going to start soon" turned into "we won't have enough work so we won't you to work this other contract." All promissory letters in place and months go by and no returned calls or emails. They don't even have the decency to disengage like grown-ups.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Not impressed
Network Operations Technician (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAFebruary 22, 2019
They don't have good benefits, they often underpay you for what you are worth, and they do not take into consideration what you are qualified to do when matching you up for a job. I would not recommend this company for long term growth and job security.

Average Workplace
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Indian Head, MDNovember 30, 2018
If your clearance expires while employed by this company, they will choose to let that person go than try to re-certify their clearance. I would recommend to any potential employee they be cautious while working for them.

I did not like working here
Youth Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Homestead, FLNovember 27, 2018
The company was incredibly bureaucratic in which it was difficult to communicate your concerns with corporate. Moreover, there wasn't a good job stability due to government contracts. The shelter can close at any moment's notice.

Talent Acquisition Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAOctober 25, 2018
Never a boring day and everyone gets along with each other perfectly. Great work environment. Management could use a little work though, info isn’t passed along like it should be.

Good enough to get your foot in the door
Information Technology Specialist Jr (Former Employee) –  Camp Lejeune, NCSeptember 24, 2018
This company served it's purpose, it was good enough to get my foot in the door. They were stingy on the pay, and promotions with pay raises were almost non-existent. The management is toxic, HR is toxic, payroll staff was good. Operations dept was also toxic. There are ZERO company perks, no incentives to excel above your normal job duties/routine. You're pretty much treated like another number on their notch. Management often failed to communicate critical issues to you and when they do they act surprised on the phone.
Pros
They will hire you
Cons
Everything other than them paying you.

One of the worst companies to work for
Youth Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Homestead, FLDecember 15, 2017
Biggest scam of life. They hired a lot of people for the homestead shelter only to let everyone go a month later. Without even having the decency to provide a good explanation or a courtesy of last weeks pay. They're a bunch of scammers. It was a wonderful experience working with children and I am aware that I signed up for temporary employment but this was an unfair business practice. I already have filed a complaint with the labor department. Hope they get defunded by the federal government. That month of a forced layoff caused me to fall back a lot financially. Not to mention the trauma they caused the children by having the youth care workers they were used to taken away from one day to another.
Pros
Working for a good cause
Cons
No breaks, bad management, being outside exposed to the elements

Training Instructor (Current Employee) –  Alexandria, VAJuly 11, 2016
Fairly New Company. Works with the Army on the IPPS-A contract. Awaiting clearance requirement is a bit lengthy. Worked at the site for 1 month and 2weeks, so I cannot adequately give a review.
Pros
Work Flexability
Cons
Lengthy clearance process

Official response from ACI Federal
July 22, 2016

ACI is not a new company,. Unfortunately, the clearance process is based on the individuals back ground and OPM. The DoD and OPM clearance process takes several months.

Great Company
IT Manager (Current Employee) –  DC - District of Columbia, DCMarch 3, 2016
ACI Federal is one of the best companies to work for - great work life balance. The company has been nominated for the best places to work in the US. I have worked at several places since my graduation, ACI is by far the fairest and most promising company that my team and others have claimed to work at.
Pros
Work/Life Balance, potential for advancement
