    I have been working at Allison Transmission


    Some of the reviews have been pretty negative but I think things are beginning to change for the better here. For the first time, our annual employee meeting didn't require employees to register on site and our CEO actually recognized a number of employees who are solid contributors. I am really encouraged. There js a new VP HR so maybe that is why things are slowly moving in a better direction.


    Still a lot of old ways of doing things as other reviews have noted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really like some of what has been happening lately, like the new cafeteria and the onsite MBA program plus the very positive All People meeting. Please keep up this kind of focus. It is much appreciated.

    Positive Outlook

    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.
