    I have been working at Alliance Laundry full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, USA manufacturing, small town location

    Cons

    Executives seem to be shifting gears almost constantly, and trying to grow faster than production can manage. This makes for conflict and uncertainty for many employees

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more, and don’t move executive positions away from the main manufacturing. Many mid and high level managers have left in the past two years. Why is this, and who is qualified to fill those positions?

    I have been working at Alliance Laundry full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are generally intelligent and friendly. Company growing rapidly. Nice small town location. Salary is pretty good for the area.

    Cons

    They keep letting people go who have been here anywhere from a few months to 30+ years. We had a few bad launches of new products and they're out for blood now. Everyone is on edge in the officers and we can't even hire enough production workers to replace the people who are leaving, let alone grow at all. It seems there getting ready to move production elsewhere, or at least a good chunk of it.

    Advice to Management

    Redesign the sub par machines and try coaching people instead of just "restructuring." Pointing out what people are doing wrong doesn't count as coaching.

    Pros

    Great team, helps build up your experience, and they have a lot of upper management as great resources.

    Cons

    Moving up in the company is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Alliance Laundry full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with.

    Cons

    Horrible culture. Executive team could care less about you. Would rather “retire” a good tenured employee and bring someone in from outside to pay them less. There’s not one “true” leader left on the executive team or upper management. They all “retired”.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to lead. Leaders admire the fact that they don’t know everything and respect the team they build around them enough to debate and disagree. Don’t be so scared of being wrong. Your team should challenge decisions. It means they care.

    I have been working at Alliance Laundry full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Always growing and seeing chances for advancement. Get to interact with a lot of different people in other departments that are like me. Have a great boss and challenges me to give my best. Pay is fair and aligns with the local industry.

    Cons

    Being able to keep up and finish what I planned for the day doesn't always happen because we are short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more leadership people to do the behind the scenes work. It appears that there aren't enough support people to hit the goals. Get more parts management people so parts are available quicker.

    I worked at Alliance Laundry full-time

    Pros

    The only thing decent is the pay and benefits, but Alliance has to offer such a good package to get any decent professionals to come to Ripon, WI.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what they're doing, and the executive team is just as clueless. There is zero effort to train employees, and the culture is a joke. There's zero business sense, and everything is always about how to make a quick buck and cut corners versus caring about people.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house starting with yourself. Learn to train your employees because if you don't train, you'll never retain them.

    Pros

    Great pay. Great benefits. Lots of opportunities to move up in the company. Reimbursement for college from day 1. The company is willing to work with you, if you put in the effort.

    Cons

    Overtime due to high turnover, but management is working on it. Communication could be better in some cases, but it has come a long way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to improve communication. This is an important piece for us to grow as company.
