    Good perks and working the events pay good money. If the publicists like you then you will have more to do.

    I worked at Allied Integrated Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Movies are fun, clients are sometimes nice.

    Cons

    Where to begin...Corporate is shady as heck. You were always wondering if you were going to be cut. They claimed to care about "work life balance" when the federal regulations first came out, and when those regulations didn't pass, they abandoned that and told you to just work your 60 hour week and just shut up. The director of my branch was a real tool and under qualified. You will literally have no life and the "lifers" get treated like gold and can do whatever, but you are under constant scrutiny. You can even lose your job if management doesn't like you, even if your clients are happy. Also be ready to be on call 24/7 to do whatever dumb stuff your client wants at all hours.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being shady. Actually care about your people. And stop appointing directors who are rude, have double standards, and have no integrity.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, fun and exciting film clients, casual dress and ability to earn more money by working screenings, promos and events (but this increases the hours worked as well)

    Cons

    Very low base salary, no training program or manual at all for new employees, clients can be very demanding leading to bad work/life balance, minimal benefits, high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Work to maintain quality employees by increasing compensation and benefits and allow long term employees more influence in the hires in their team

    Pros

    Clients! Working with some of the entertainment clients and brands can be rather exciting.

    Cons

    Allied is not a creative agency! Walk into any of the 24 offices and you'll find a very corporate environment with folks who could be working in a number of different industries.

    I worked at Allied Integrated Marketing full-time

    Pros

    The office had a fun environment and a lot of great experiences. You really get to own your campaigns and make a lot of connections.

    Cons

    No training, very few opportunities for advancement, poor pay, no work-life balance, favoritism, management was non existent and unaware of employees contributions to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize hard working employees with the budget you'd save by letting go non-contributing employees. They are the ones picking up the slack of those who are not actually working on the company's time.

    I worked at Allied Integrated Marketing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved the work, clients and co-workers.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees. After 7 years with the company I was told it would look bad for me to request a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Do reviews with clients to find out what markets are succeeding and those who aren't. Reward employees accordingly. At a field meeting a co worker told our client we needed cash incentives to do a better job. Allied should be the ones encouraging employees to grow... and should pay them accordingly. A new Co worker of mine was talking about how ricidilous it was that her first job in 2001 she only made 26k. At allied people were still starting at that salary in 2012! Wake up and start treating your employees better. Don't think you can get away with not doing anything and paying terribly because it's a "cool" job. There are a lot of really lazy people at the company cashing in bigger pay checks who do NOTHING and rely on their coordinators to carry 99% of the workload.
