    Pros

    flex schedule, work-life balance, good pay

    Cons

    the benefits were lacking, and management was sometime unwilling to help or respond to time sensitive emails

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering hiring people with more prior management experience as well as subject matter knowledge for what the project is they are managing

    I have been working at Allonhill

    Pros

    Great place to work due to the "grown up" treatment. This is a lot different then the call center environment that I was used to.

    Cons

    Great uncertainty with the mortgage industry. This is a project based company that may or may not have work at any given time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to get projects.

    Pros

    Good pay not much else.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor supervision, poor / unprofessional business philosophy and business working model. In other words, poor management. young inexperienced managers with inadequate people skills. Some co workers were abusive and unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to school and learn how to manage a business. Take a psychology class and try to better understand people.

    I worked at Allonhill full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was great, co workers were friendly, and I felt like I was part of a team. I really liked the company wide meetings that were held once a week, which made it feel like we were a whole group working towards one goal.

    Cons

    The CEO was friendly and seemed to really value her employees for the most part. Some of the other individuals working beneath her in upper management didn't even know who we were or what project we were working on. I sat idle for 2 weeks or so, with nothing to do, and our team felt a layoff was coming. We were assured that we would hear back from the client regarding more work, but we all felt uneasy. Sure enough, come pay day, we were all laid off. Management was always saying how transparent they were, but I could tell they were hiding something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you feel as though a lay off is coming, please give your employees a fighting chance to find work ahead of time. The cost of living is high, and there's always a lag in receiving unemployment benefits. Please be transparent with your employees, as you are always saying you are. When I got laid off, the individual doing the process, gave off the vibe that he didn't really care and was hesitant to answer any questions regarding re hire, should the company see fit.

    I worked at Allonhill full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I loved the people I met and certain management members have me a chance to grow.

    Cons

    This company is full if you know what. None of the employees that were let go we're given copies of the agreements we signed. I actually applied for a job there after the OCC lay off and was laid off again. I played a vital part of the the OCC review and I am actually quite happy they are going through the trouble now. They should have treated employees better and some of us would have explained what was done. They turned there back on employees and I hope employees receive some type of compensation from the law suit. I am waiting for an attorney to call me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screw them

    Pros

    This was an exciting place to work at the time I started there in 2011 on the OCC consent order project for Aurora Bank.

    Cons

    We never seemed to actually complete any of the reviews that were required. We would complete them, and then when we ran out of data we would find out that they were all being re-loaded due to some script changes or something that needed to be totally re-completed. Worst thing was that the owner was a little shady with her representations to the OCC regarding impartiality, and they ended up yanking the project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play fast and loose with the federal government or they'll shut you down.

    Pros

    It was a very creative place to work. Employees were treated like adults, and expected to behave accordingly

    Cons

    The owner sold certain assets, my teams contract included, to Stewart Title. Can you say kindergarten? I feel just like I'm back there.
