    I have been working at Allen Communication full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing compares to the people you will work with at Allen. They are smart, innovative, and fun. I’ve never been surrounded by a better group of people. I enjoy my job at Allen, but I love my coworkers.

    We get to work on cutting edge projects with some of the coolest companies. You get a wide variety of experiences because of the different businesses we work with.

    For a small company that doesn’t fit into the startup realm, they try to do things to create a fun culture by celebrating random holidays (National Play Dough Day, anyone?).

    The management is reasonable when it comes to flexibility for life events (sick time, childcare issues, etc). I do feel like my managers care about me and my wellbeing and understand that sometimes life gets in the way of work.

    They have cool clubs like Donut Club and Salad Club (it’s called balance), which are run by employees. Employees can create new clubs, if they are interested.

    Cons

    Due to it being a billing environment, the productivity expectations can be very high. Although this is needed for any profitable business, it can lead people to feel like the work/life balance is not as manageable. It’s a specific type of stress that some people don’t do well with (while other’s thrive on it).

    Benefits are on the average to minimal side, which may hinder attracting younger applicants.

    There is a lack of structured review periods, which is a hard adjustment when coming from a very structured corporate American job.

    Not a lot of flexibility to work from home, even though there are some tasks that don’t require being in the office. Providing all employees with laptops would allow for more flexibility and may help meet some of the productivity expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover has been a problem, but it feels like management is trying to make changes to address that. Continue to try to build a culture of staying. Consider creating opportunities for all employees to be part of new innovations, perhaps as a way to balance the productivity expectations with an opportunity to be creative (without client restrictions).

    Create a formal program for reviews, raises, and promotions so people know what they are working towards.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Allen Communication (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    Starts with a writing test, then interview with a VP, then panel interview with Sr. Leaders. I had to give a presentation and the goal was probably to test my relationship skills, more than presentation skills.
