    I worked at ARI as an intern

    Pros

    benefits of a small company with worldwide business growth. everyone at the company cares about your well being and genuinely appreciates your work and what you can do to help the company grow. employees are motivated to help ARI do well because they have fun at work and have things like, employee events during work, a all day long cafeteria and lounge area, and gym access.

    Cons

    the industry is not as intuitive for most since it's not an industry many people have experience with. ARI offers many learning opportunities and growth within the company to quickly adjust.

    I have been working at ARI full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are nice and for the most part supportive in the work environment. Sometimes fun events are offered. The parent company values community commitment for the benefit of winning industry praise. Annual PIE Bonus is a plus.

    Cons

    Supervisors have no idea how much time routine tasks take and are assign unreasonable deadlines without overtime allowance. Management is disorganized and constantly reassigning roles and responsibilities in an effort to find efficiencies in work flow - often they don't make sense. Instead of promoting long-term staff, they hire from the outside, which creates morale problems. Management is unapproachable and aloof. Work is boring and not challenging. Management doesn't care as much as they 'say' they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to grow and expand the business. Focus on cleaning up the favoritism and confusion at the admin/coordinator level. Supervisors need to learn people skills and take responsibility for making a change instead of making the morale problem worse. Flex time would help employees establish better work-life balance. The intern program takes opportunities away from dedicated long-term staff.

    I have been working at ARI full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    ARI's is very supportive of employee growth and development and offers a generous tuition reimbursement program. The culture is fun and there are many ways to become involved in the community both internally and in the surrounding region. Annual bonus is nice perk.

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement is limited even after completing milestones in education. Management is focused on streamlining processes, which in turn, limits the scope of your responsibilities, making you feel more boxed in than ever before. Merit raises do not meet the increase in cost of living in the area. Sometimes the praise does not seem genuine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're sending mixed messages. On one hand you say you value the people, but on the other hand we are overlooked and not heard. It's not always the best strategy to bring people in from the outside and have your top brass with very little product/service knowledge.

    I have been working at ARI full-time

    Pros

    End of year bonuses, PIE awards, departments other than accounting seem to have a good work life balance.

    Cons

    Supervisors and Managers only promote people who are friends or prior Holman employees, no matter how good your work is or how many mistakes those Holman employees make you will never get ahead. The amount of favoritism is unbelievable. It doesn't matter how hard you work you will never get a promotion or appropriate raise if you don't kiss up to the right people. Supervisor micromanage everyone and expect ridiculous amounts of overtime with no appreciation for the hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop only promoting based on friendships, promote on good work and professionalism. Show more appreciation of your good employees and all of the work they do.

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

    Pros

    The technicians who work here are a great bunch of guys. We get along really well and we learn from each other when we are allowed to talk. The building is easy to get to.

    Cons

    Management only care about themselves. They are always trying to convince us how great it is here. They wouldn't have to work so hard at it if it really was a good place. Look at the review about the "truth" at ARI. Obvious, this was written by upper management. Who else would even have a guess at what the average pay raise is. I thought Glassdoor was for working Joes, not upper management propaganda. Pathetic.

    The benefits used to be affordable but it is going WAY UP . The owners have $ millions and can afford to treat us better. This place is starting to remind me of Wal Mart. We need a union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real.

    The Truth about ARI

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ARI full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    One review states “Management only promotes friends and former acquaintances. Working hard and exceeding expectations don't matter. This was a great company that took care of its employees. With recent change in upper management, things have slowly deteriorated. Benefits were great but have slowly been shrinking. Management is hostile and only cares about personal motives and profitability”. I say WRONG! This company provides excellent benefits including tuition reimbursement. If I add up the value of the various benefits I receive each year, it is well over $15K. Another reviewer said “The raises are poop. Literally, dog poop and a disappointment to the staff who work their tails off throughout the course of the year. A lot of people feel stuck here and it's sad.” This is absolutely untrue. Even during the last recession most employees were averaging better than a 4% merit increase every year. Someone made the statement “Anyone over 30 can't make supervisor. Older guys don't stsnd a chance. Management only wants people that look just like rhem.” First off, I was over 40 when initially hired and have been promoted twice in the last 5 years (been here 8). Secondly, maybe not being promoted stems from not being proficient enough to proof read one’s own writing. The truth is, ARI is a fantastic company to work for and many employees will tell you that same thing. ARI offers excellent benefits including staggered shifts, work from home programs, employee discounts on numerous items including cars, tuition reimbursement, various healthcare plans at extremely reasonable pricing, company-wide job posting and transfer opportunity and a host of other benefits.

    Cons

    HQ location. The traffic is tough around headquarters, but not a lot the company can do about that, although they were instrumental in getting a left turn lane added at the highway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!
