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

    Director (Former Employee) Plymouth, MI

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

    ConsPeople 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 Senior ManagementLook outside the box.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very difficult people to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Wheat Ridge, CO

    ProsOwner 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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Withheld. (Current Employee) Okemos, MI

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

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementAs 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
