    I worked at Allied Vaughn full-time

    Pros

    Management considered customers and employees part of the solution to complex business opportunities. Competitive compensation and benefit offerings. Great top down transparent communications.

    Cons

    Little or no opportunities for upward or lateral career advancement. Same people hold same titles for years. Some due to industry stagnation, but . . .

    I have been working at Allied Vaughn as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility. Able to work part- or full-time. Excellent opportunities for interns in the archival and library and information science fields.

    Cons

    The person who hired me said I had the possibility to be hired after my first 90 days. As my 90 days ended, I asked about my status with the company. I was put off for another month, then told business conditions had changed and there wasn't a chance of my being hired permanently at this time. I feel this was somewhat dishonest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest when hiring employees about what kinds of opportunities you're able to offer.

    I have been working at Allied Vaughn full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good internal opportunities for growth, fair compensation
    mgmt and workforce sharing of reduction in compensation during in hard times
    diverse workforce

    Cons

    some of the time: all the responsibility for success - but not all the control necessary to achieve it.
    lean mixture of quantity of employees versus quantity of work necessary for OTP success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep the strong mix of head smart - watching the current marketplace opportunities and anticipating tomorrow's.
    and heart strong - creating and recreating the culture that encourages independent risk taking - even if / when it fails

    I worked at Allied Vaughn

    Pros

    Good people, work life balance.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. Companies hay day was the last decade, having a hard time adapting to the changing market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More agressive approach for the future.
