    Great place to work

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer  in  Gardena, CA
    Former Employee - Systems Engineer in Gardena, CA

    I worked at Allied Digital Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Management treats all employees like family.

    Cons

    India based now in U.S.A. Takes a bit to understand, but after that not a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Pays the bills (most of them anyway)

    Cons

    Poor management, no room for advancement, no raises, lower than industry average salary,
    New hires get fed lies about room for growth and advancement along with salary increases. They find out the truth eventually.
    Management is reactive and not proactive if they do anything to begin with.
    Corporate culture is to keep status quo and not rock the boat (or else you'll get thrown overboard). Any suggestions will be ignored or they'll acknowledge them but never do anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice from a single person would ever change this company. Management is entrenched with running all branches like they do in India. I reluctantly give this company 1 star for every category because zero was not an option.

    Pros

    If you love autonomy and are successful working on your own without much assistance then this is a great company.

    Cons

    Lack of vision from the leaders, no loyalty unless you are ethnically matched, often hire unproven leaders with no experience. Benefits are horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are making investments in other countries then don't ship people from HQ to those regions. Hire successful people who know the culture of their country.

    Pros

    Checks are paid on time and haven't bounced yet.
    They pay you in dollars.

    Cons

    Promotions? Only if someone else quits and the job opens up.
    Raises? Next question. It's a dirty word around here.
    Bonuses? Yes, you get to eat it every Friday around noon. (Cost the company less than actual bonuses)
    Cost of living increases? Their website is allieddigital.net NOT allieddigital.gov
    Growth opportunities? Only in your waistline.
    Learning opportunities? Sure, figure out issues as they go along. Google is your friend.
    Employee retention? There's a referral program to cope with the high employee turnover (Cheaper than raises). Work harder? Why? You get paid the same as the guy who does the minimum. Dedication is directly related to compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't emulate the company after Enpointe. Bob Din is not your idol. Spend a little more money to take care of the employees that generate the revenue for your company. It's not a motivator to see BMW's, Mercedes', Porsche's, and Land Rover's in the parking lot while many of us are living check to check. If someone asked if I would recommend this company to others, I'd say yes. I'd recommend it to all of my enemies (in the most sarcastic tone possible).

    I have been working at Allied Digital Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay you I guess,,,just not well

    Cons

    Wow where to start....They have customers but they try to do the absolute minimum with out being prepared always looking to scam to get more business or employees to cover multiple accounts so they can say the have "x" amount of techs on account but barely care at all if job is done right. The all mighty tickets is king "good we can bill for more " is a common phrase..deceptive representation to customers and employees..One manager said to get raise you can get new certs and then another manger comes on ( high turn over rate at place) and denies that's the policy. etc etc. No concern to actually serv the customer but faking it to bill more
    Only IT company I ever saw that doesn't use any form of technology to even help itself. Old slow pc's no imaging in whole office , systems go down many times in a year and every time they act as if the first time it ever happened no plan for failure or back up all just a shadily and cheaply done deal...amazing...and they are supposed to be tech company..LOL
    I have more backup failure and redundancy with my home pc's...ha ha ha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have tried to help with new ideas for better performance for us and better service for the company a repeatedly shot down with any logical reasoning...just be quiet and unlock accounts..

    Former Employee - Administrative Level in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

    I worked at Allied Digital Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There was always something to do.

    Cons

    There was always too much to do: to the point that I found the job soul crushing and became very sad when the weekend would end and I'd have to stare another work week in the face. I found how the company operated to be pretty shady and was always expecting some customer to blow away the smoke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
