    I worked at ALM full-time

    Pros

    People are genuinely nice, good work life balance, brands are solid and have a lot of respect in the marketplace.

    Cons

    No one knows the parent company so one is always explaining what ALM is, lots of new senior management, including a new CEO. Company is clearly getting ready for a sale so cutting costs whenever and wherever possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect and you will get much more out of them.

    Stay away--if you care one iota about your career.

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

    Pros

    9-5 work day, decent location in NYC (financial district), it's likely some of your coworkers will be cool

    Cons

    Upper management is shady--a total boy's club and a lot of sexism going on.
    They don't care at all about employee satisfaction.
    HR is not trustworthy--on management team's side and nobody else.
    Company is spiraling downhill and aren't going to catch up in the digital age.
    No room to grow in your career, or even express thoughtful ideas that will be heard.
    Terrible benefits.
    Extremely high turnover rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to employees who aren't on the management team. You have been lucky to have some talent come through there--it's likely you lost them due to horrible culture and leadership.
