    I worked at Allen Corporation of America as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small business setting that has a very good feel to it

    Cons

    Glass ceiling for advancement. If you aren't in the "in" crowd, you are a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with the heart beat of the organization, the line worker. Having a Christmas party saying how great the year was and then announcing pay cuts a week later doesn't sit well with most people. There should have been a deliberate information campaign when you cut people's pay... especially right after Christmas. The people that worked around me were awesome, but the disengaged upper management made it impossible to stay in the organization. They aren't the only ones. There is a general leadership crisis in this country.
