    Allison isn't perfect, but it is pretty good compared to other places

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


    I've been at Allison Transmission for a little over four years. It is not perfect, but it is a lot better than the two other companies I have worked for in the past 15 years. Most people are very nice, and work well together. There are more younger people coming into the workforce, and that is a good thing for several reasons. Many of the longtime employees are very knowledgeable. However, there are some that you wonder how they have been allowed to stay with the company as long as they have. And there are a few employees that are very bitter, as some of the reviews show. But most of the over 1,000 employees are nice. I have received modest, but regular pay raises since I started, and iComp every year. I just try to do my job as well as I can.


    There are some legitimate complaints. Some of the Managers are weak. How would you like to work for the ones who have written some of the reviews on this site? I can imagine their attitude affects their work…perhaps that is why they are not receiving raises? The puzzling thing one has to wonder is why these individuals stay at Allison. If seems like it shouldn't be too hard for them to get a job where they would be happier...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep developing managers and directors, some are good, others not so much. Make sure new promotions go to people who have good people skills, not just the best worker [who may not have people skills].

    Interview Details

    Interviewers were not very skilled. They read everything and took a lot if notes. Did't seem very comfortable with what they were expected to do. I was surprised. Thought it would be more rigorous.

In the world of automatics, Allison Transmission has pull. The company builds automatic transmissions for commercial-duty vehicles. Allison's customers include OEMs of garbage trucks and city transit buses, military transports, and dump trucks. The company also makes electric drives for buses and shuttles (it is the world's #1 heavy-duty hybrid producer), and remanufactures transmissions for aftermarket customers. Private equity firms The Carlyle Group and Onex Corp. each own about half of Allison, which filed to go public in early 2011.
