Ceiling to Professional Growth and Advancement
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 11, 2018
As a new employee, one may determine that there are multiple opportunities for professional growth and elevation within ACS. One you have proven yourself as a someone who gets things done, you discover that ACS is very saturated and there is nowhere for your developed skills sets to be displayed with the proper compensation or promotion. Then the opportunities dry up.
Pros
Healthcare, Retirement, Good People
Cons
Lack of organization, silos, overworked with the promise of elevation. Never comes.

No perks, all work, all the time
Scientist/Science Writer (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHJanuary 25, 2018
It was a great company for scientists, but recently they have started outsourcing a lot of their work and the managers are under pressure to make the local workers take on much harder tasks. That limits the new learning and the fun that the job was.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
no fun anymore

Fun but Little Advancement
Senior Innovation and Strategy Specialist (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 21, 2017
It's a good place to work. The only drawbacks are the chances for advancement which are few and compensation isn't the hottest. Management in different departments can be a bit political.
Pros
some nice people, professional development opportunities
Cons
little advancement
