    Pros

    ALU gave me a chance right out of college and has provided me with many oportunities to learn new skills. I have had great managers that have been mentors and provided me with great tools for my career.

    Cons

    Unfortunatly ALU has a lot of politics and often a lot of red tape to sort through. They try their best but don't always provide the sense of community that I want in a job.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management really needs to look at their people and find ways to motivate them even in tough times.
