    I have been working at Alder full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at Alder is not for people who need to be told what to do at all times. Working here has taught me entrepreneurial spirit and given me the opportunity to perfect my skills and craft in a way I doubt I could find anywhere else.

    Cons

    Don't expect a lot of help. No benefits.

    I worked at Alder full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No pros to the job

    Cons

    their leadership team has an elitist perspective, they believe they are better than you, they will send you into dangerous areas that are not safe, my good friend got stalked and I had a gun put you my face twice and they didn’t care for our safety. They will not teach you anything and be hands on, be prepared that your first day will not be in the office and expect to be thrown into the field and left alone for hours in a bad high crime part of town, if you have a service dog they will deny you employment, do not trust anyone
