Pros

Good people that work here and hours aren't bad. Office is flexible and you will get to see a lot of different office space scattered across the east coast.

Cons

upward movement seems slow and not very rewarding. Work comes in spurts, spend decent amount of time doing nothing. Company also seems too content

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the company has to think bigger. Technology is so important to the future and even though Align doesn't have the name of an IBM or DELL or other IT companies, it has the ability to take advantage of Boutique markets

    Pros

    Compared to similar IT business solution companies, decent benefit (not good enough benefit compared to other companies). Employees are encouraged to get professional or industry-standard certifications. Small company with close relationship and open communication between employees. Good middle management. Company owner cares of employee's well-being.

    Cons

    Senior management does not have intimate relationship with clients or with potential clients, which leads to missed opportunities. Senior management gets anxious with less projects and more bills. No team or group member lead to coordinate internal communication. Little to no communication between employees handling multiple projects simultaneously. Less-intensive hiring process which leads only to attract little-to-no-potential employees. Every employee is "forced" to generate more sales or is shown the door. Expects employees to work at least 10 hour a day including weekends. Decides to take clients in certain industries or areas hoping to save on taxes, only resulting to have additional costs with little to no benefit. Decides to lose or "force" to lose senior technical employees hoping to save costs only to lead confusions and frictions between less-technical employees with overload of work and projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to focus on potential industry sectors. Hire senior management that have intimate relationship with clients or potential clients and have abilities to generate more sales. Review existing senior management ability and leadership. Improve hiring process to attract highly-potential sale forces. Improve employee skill development based on tangible metrics.
