Acquity Group Employee
in Chicago, IL

"I worked for Acquity Group since 2009. I found the work challenging and exciting, since I was given opportunities to build software that was used by millions of people. The projects do tend to be disorganized and stressful, however, given that they are usually managed by business analysts rather than experienced software professionals."

"There were problems in creating an environment in which I could succeed... however, I'm sure, for most people looking for an entry- to mid-level position, this is a good company to work for on consulting engagements."

"A very dysfunctional and unhappy place to work"

What do you like about working at Acquity Group?

"Somehow they have been able to lure big name clients ad that is nice, but then they often bad mouth clients behind their backs."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't interview here. Or if you do, do not believe anything they promise about the company culture. It's all a facade and not a fun place to work. They regularly degrade their employees and expect that to motivate them to do better."

What don't you like about working at Acquity Group?

"Management is juvenile and vindictive. You have no control over your free time. All they care about is billable hours and they do not care anything about their employees physical, emotional or psychological health. If you step out of line or try to improve yourself professionally, they will actually take disciplinary action."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Send every single manager to leadership training. Then send your CEO."

"Toxic and Degrading"

What do you like about working at Acquity Group?

"Sometimes they have interesting projects, because good companies get sold on the company without realizing the 'real' company they are hiring. I have met some nice people here, but they usually quit fairly quickly if they are able to."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Do not believe anything they try to sell you about the company culture. Everything they say about a happy productive company culture is false. They expect you to work over 50 hours a week and I quote, Do not encourage resources to self-determine what to do when they have extra time available."

What don't you like about working at Acquity Group?

"The company is run by very dysfunctional people with no 'people skills' and that have absolutely no interest in their employees or job satisfaction. That would not be so unusual, except that management actually goes out of its way not to commend employees, but to degrade them in public and in private."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Send every single manager in your company to leadership training. Then send the CEO!"

What do you like about working at Acquity Group?

"The Chicago office headquarters seem to have more commaraderie and team spirit. The people seemed very nice and the senior management seems to be much more active and accessible there."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you are creatively inclined you will not be happy here. But if you just want a decent gig with a nice company that pays well, and you don't really give a sh*t about who you work with, you will fit right in."

What don't you like about working at Acquity Group?

"Complete lack of commaraderie. Total lack of interest in fellow employees. No team spirit or cohesion. No team leadership from those supposedly in charge."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Reconsider your upper mgmt. of the West Coast. You have lost your best people from the L.A. office (and probably from Irvine as well). But you probably don't recognize this as you have other decent employees who have stayed on. However, they are not your highest achievers or the people that could have really made the L.A. office something special. They are gone and I see frustration in the eyes and words of the interesting employees that have remained or the smarter new hires."
