    Field engineers are disposable. Warm bodies need only apply.

    I worked at Acuative full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company car, gas and expense card.

    Cons

    No room for advancement for Field engineers. Pay is way below average. Expected to work 24/7/365. Have to send in email to let management know that you are unavailable after work or on weekends for "call outs". Even still may get a call in the middle of dinner or at 3am. And are still expected to work a full day following.

    Never got compliments on good jobs only complaints on bad ones.

    Extremely high turnover rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your field engineers what they are worth. They are what makes you money. Leave your staff alone if they aren't on call. Everyone needs a break, especially if they are under paid...

    I have been working at Acuative full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Getting paid for 40 hours a week regardless if you work. 16 days off even for first year employee's.

    Cons

    Company seems to have a glass ceiling in terms of pay for their field engineers. On calls can be brutal and there is demands that you are always available even when you're not on call.

    This company does not care if you have a family or if you have children. You are expected to be available for work. I have been doing this as a working father and it has put a ton of strain on my wife. I am now looking for new jobs to move to that will be more family friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your high quality field engineers what they are worth. You seem to constantly forget that people have families by the way you treat your field engineers. Also by not rewarding your field engineers who provide top level work for you it simply makes them want to leave. This is going to continue to cause a brain drain and lower your overall quality of support you provide.
