    Pros

    Alliance One is a respected company in tobacco industry and has long history in China. It's a good company to work with.

    Cons

    A conservative company, dealing with monopoly in China. And the future of this industry is not so good as other industries.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing in China and its management team, they have created good value for the company, we hope the company grows well.

    Pros

    Flexible and at the end of each season you received a bonus if you're not fired or quit.

    Cons

    I would say working in all the tobacco scent and smell.

    Advice to Management

    To be more understanding and continue to listen to your employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They put a lot of thought into adding a bit of fun for employees, mostly in the form of "dress down" days, but also in a company BBQ and such. Lots of friendships were formed, and it was a fun place to work IF you were making your numbers.

    Cons

    Suggestions were not usually welcomed. You were there to get a job done, not try to improve things.

    Pros

    potential for good money if you don't mind plowing through phone calls you have to dial and shaking down people to pay their debts.

    Cons

    Hounding deadbeats to pay their debts making high volume calls and contacts each day and noise from others in their cubes.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't been there long enough to make a fair assessment on what advice I could give to management so far.

    I have been working at Alliance One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are able to gain insightful information about the tobacco industry and how to grow.

    Cons

    Many of the lower level positions are seasonal, and layoffs are unpredictable.

    Advice to Management

    More young, innovative employees should be considered for managerial positions.


  8. A lot of ups and Downs.

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked with are very nice and helpful. I loved the job I did.

    Cons

    Some of the people I worked for really need to retire. No clue as to what it takes to get the job done. I understand you need to keep your customers satisfied, but you really need to back your employees.

    Advice to Management

    There are some management that seems to do anything to make their own employees jobs more difficult and really need to look out for your own employees needs on the job.

    Pros

    Good people, friendly atmosphere and OK pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow specially if you are female. The internal job posting are not clear cut. Promotions are based on politics not personal accomplishments, Raises are minimal and do not keep with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid group think!

    I worked at Alliance One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The mangers try to keep it a fun upbeat atmosphere. Collections work can be a drag, but Alliance One agents are not required to be a-holes (though some are). You are able to work with debtors and actually help them resolve issues.

    Cons

    Had to log into a time clock, computer time clock and a third time tracking system and the phone (very annoying when you get there close to your start time...you end up being "late" because it takes so long to log into all 4 systems.

    Advice to Management

    Get one system for tracking time...not 3.
