I have been working at Allen Communication full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
I'll be honest. I'm surprised by the negative reviews
I’ve been at Allen for 17+ years
The CEO, COO, AND CLO have mentioned many times that their “doors are always open” if we want to discuss anything.
After 5:00pm a dept. head has encouraged me to leave for the day. Recently, in our dept. meeting, our dept. received kudos and meeting the high demand of work coming in.
I have received positive feedback and encouragement from all of the higher ups and co-workers. Communication can always be fine-tuned between what the customer expects, what the sales staff offers, what company provides, and what is delivered. But isn’t that true for most companies? Can you really label Allen as being ‘sales/revenue-only focus’ when 2 of its employees flew out-of-state to support a client’s SME in a community production? Or the time spent to get a look-and-feel of a course treatment “just right” for a scrutinizing client’s eye?
And with an incredibly new space/location that offers more collaboration and casual connections with each other, Allen offers a great working experience.Cons

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Allen Communication in January 2015.Interview Details
Responded to the posting on LinkedIn. I was then contacted and asked to submit a resume and portfolio link. A day later I was contacted to set up an interview time.
I felt the interview went exceptionally well and was told to call back a week later and I would be told if I was moving forward and be given files to complete a "test." I was given every indication by the interviewer that I was a top candidate and would be moving forward.
I called a week later as directed and was sent to voicemail. After leaving a voicemail for the interviewer and one for the HR contact, I waited another day before emailing HR requesting some sort of information. A day later I have not received any word - by email or phone. At this point I am assuming that the position was offered to someone else and Allen Communication doesn't communicate to any candidate other than the one they select.
Too bad. I was really looking forward to showing them what I could do on their test.Interview Questions

- Pretty standard stuff. The interviewer made it a point to review the company's creative process and workflow with me. It felt more like a conversation than an interview. View Answer
