    I have been working at Alliance One full-time

    Pros

    Family friendly company. You get a chance to interact with top management. decent benefits especially 3 weeks paid-time-off from start.

    Cons

    Weak HR as far as career planning for employees! They do not promote from within. Even though, there are a couple of women in top management, they do not think highly of women and you can feel that attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your employees and have plan for their career advancement. promote from within.
