    Pros

    The company relocated to Dallas area and hired a lot great individuals to work at new headquarters. A year later, it had turned into a very efficient team. We were all good at our jobs, and getting better every day. And being relatively small company, I felt like my work actually mattered. I learned skills that have helped me in future positions. I miss this place. The people, the building, the stores we we supported...it all rocked.

    Cons

    I will always wonder what would have happened a few years down the road...if we could have only had more time to keep building the future Alco.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the memories and the chance to advance our careers
