  1.  

    Great Experience over the very first years of the locally owned company.

    Pros

    Good company structure, solid workforce retention is very low. Employees stay a very long time. Employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    People in leadership positions should not be in those positions. Weak leadership, no personal growth, no promotions. Unless you know someone, you are not considered important, but management expects you do of the job of 3 people, with no appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside the box.

    Pros

    Owner is out of the office often. The place was much more at ease with him gone. Work hours were good, they would work with your schedule

    Cons

    Owner treats you like you are stupid. Very condescending. Owners have a hard time working with people. It can be very difficult to get an answer to a tough question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone to do your sales. You are not a people person, hire someone to be the face of the company.

  3.  

    Be very cautious; these are small locations prone to favoritism and poor management.

    Pros

    Allegra Print and Imaging of Okemos had really no redeeming qualities.

    Cons

    The owner will pay you less than you're worth unless you're the Sales Manager or his idolized Sales Representative. He will ignore your personal development after promising everything that sounds reasonable in the interview. He refuse to give raises unless you are one of his favorites or an attractive woman.

    Allegra is a franchise system, however. While I feel the dynamics may be somewhat systemic, I cannot be sure. While this is for a specific Allegra location in Okemos, MI, BE CAREFUL in considering ANY Allegra Print and Imaging location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a franchise, enact a strict guideline on employee's rights and benefits. Insist that Owners/Managers are routinely retrained on positive employer/employee relationship building.
