    I worked at Allegra Network part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small company, only worked with a couple other people. One of our bigger customers was an amusement park in the town, so we got tickets to go there for a work meeting with other b2b companies. Work day was pretty steady, busier during the beginning of the week and quiter near the end. Dead on holidays.

    Cons

    i was treated kind of unfairly, didn't learn how to use the cutting machine or do a lot of production work. I was mainly there for designing, answering calls and ringing up customers. I was asked to quote people and had no idea what to quote. I was working hourly, so during dead times and holidays, I would be able to get in a full week of work.

    Advice to Management

    My manager in the town I worked at was so awful. I still talk to the coworker to this day and nothing has changed. The manager reads the newspaper and comes in late. He doesn't know graphic design and can barely operate the printers correctly. He leaves everything to the 1 person that works there.

    Pros

    Slightly flexible schedule, employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    Don't let the pretty office fool you. You won't be invested in or listened to no matter how right you are or how great your idea is. Far too many "managers" and people in leadership roles who frankly don't deserve to be. Technology is way behind the curve and it's not invested in properly. You'll barely get any praise for doing a great job, but you can bet you'll get blamed when something goes poorly.
