I worked at Altegrity full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The people were actually really great given the boredom and pace of some of the work. The lines of responsibility blurred often, giving you the chance to take on more projects and gain experience, some more enticing than others. For someone young, trying to understand corporate structure, business and what it really means to be in the trenches, this is a great company to work for...if they're even hiring now.

Cons

The Private Equity firm, Providence Equity Partners, that owned us couldn't make up their mind and forced our leadership, all more than competent business people, to flip flop back and forth on the direction of the portfolio. All of the low and mid level employees understood this and if the leadership had been allowed to lead, then the company could have reached its potential. Health plan's were okay and 401K matching (while there was one) was actually pretty good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The structure of the company became very unclear, and though it seems that altegrity is fading away, it would probably help people to better understand who is in charge and how this relates to the portfolio as a whole. Within the companies, please let the business leaders lead, not the practitioners, their time has passed.

    Pros

    Not living in a tent yet.

    Cons

    My Team Leader is a psychopath with sever mental health issues and this is who the company lets manage day to day operations. Doing the work of 3 people and still asked why you didn't do more???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give personality profile tests to the people you hire a Team Leaders because there are Bipolar people acting as Team Leaders. They have bluffed their way into management then we have gotten stuck with them and there's no way out. Like I said, it's like living in horror movie.

    Pros

    Some nice people to share in the misery and frustration.

    Cons

    Prevailing leadership views employees as cogs that are easily interchangeable. High-level managers and c-suite members are brought on because of their friendships with current management even though they have no relevant industry knowledge or experience. Despite this, some come up with good ideas, but no one commits to implementing them and they wouldn't have a clue how to do so if they could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire based on competence, experience & industry knowledge, and integrity like you used to in the past. Recognize and nurture talent. Commit to new idea and strategies and follow through on them -- it takes longer than one or two quarters to see results.
