    I worked at Alltech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities abound to learn and develop new skills. The organization runs lean and you will get cross trained with multiple different positions in the company. There are opportunities to mow globablly if you develop marketable skills. The company invests lots of money in employees through their back to basics program. The company strives to innovate and find new markets and products. The corporate culture emphasizes hospitality and customer service. If you enjoy a fast paced and dynamic environment the work days will fly by.

    Cons

    The company organizational structure is flat and confusingly structured. It is generally run with an atmosphere of fear. Fear that you will be replaced if you don't satisfy the shifting whims of the Lyon's, or one of the various corporate officers with ambiguous duties and roles. Despite constant internal communications of how profitable the company is pay increases are not consististant with company progress. Lack of a clear organizational structure tends to lead to peer who outrank others dumping work onto subordinates. The culture is one of fear that you will be eliminated if someone else knows how to do the job that you do. Good people seem to be fired inexplicably.

    Advice to Management

    Clarify the organization structure quarterly, set limits on what demands can be manufactured from TPL or Deirdre that interfere with productivity and morale. Treat the production members with more respect and dignity. Eliminate the 'class system that exists between operations, and sales/marketing

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alltech.

    Interview

    One interview with three staff members after I submitted work samples. We never established rapport and it was awkward at times. Good communication from hiring manager. One of the interviewers abruptly left the room after asking questions, and although there may have been a good reason, that felt disrespectful to me as a candidate. Otherwise very professional. I got the impression it could be a stressful place to work. I appreciated how responsive the hiring manager was throughout the process. It seems like they have a lot of exciting projects.
