Company reviews
"Great place to work"
Current EmployeeContributor
ARC offers great benefits (including unlimited PTO), challenging work, a supportive culture and many training opportunities. The company has been working through a digital transformation which as allowed for many employees to become skilled on cutting edge technologies.

"CIO is a joke"
Former EmployeeContributor
The company was great until they replaced the CIO. After that everything was about what niche group you fit into. You were either 'in' or you were 'out'. It didn't matter how good your job performance was if you were cast into the 'out' group. People in the 'in' group got away with doing absolutely nothing and were rewarded for it.

"They have "take what you need" as a vacation policy. So if you want to take 9 weeks of vacation and still have a job. This is the place for you."
Current EmployeeDatabase Administrator
They lie. During covid they said the mission was to protect their people but yet they let go 35 people. The bulk of the people had over ten years experience and showed great loyalty to the company. This was after 34 people "voluntarily" retired. The executives just protect themselves.

"Hard working employees , incompetent management"
Former EmployeeSenior Data Analyst
Benefits are Ok. Management creates atmosphere of fear and insecurity. There is always fear of being laid off. Strategy and goal change often and there is always a lack of direction. Priorities change and employees get confused. Favoritism is widespread and fact of life. The closer one gets to managers and directors, his chance of growth is much better.
