    I worked at Allied Tube and Conduit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allied had a good run for a long time. They were nice to the employees. GM calm, open, a good manager. The last HR he was very supportive, keep us informed about the work force reduction. Help us to find other employment. Got a severance package.

    Cons

    Unfortunately good things do not last. Many of us working for years were let go. I miss my work friends.

    Advice to Management

    Keep jobs in the USA. The worker and families are the ones hurt at the end.

    Mamagement lacked true understanding of plant performance. Local plant management was shuffled around when they failed to perform. Local management was hired outside accomplishing nothing.

    I worked at Allied Tube and Conduit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with that are committed to the company and have significant experience. A few good business leaders are left since the change of ownership.

    Cons

    With a private equity owner, the focus is on the bottom line at all cost. Lost is the focus on the customer and delivering a quality product on time, the first time. A lot of new people have been brought in that don't understand the industry nor do they want to dig in to get the job done, they simply want to delegate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the seasoned employees and focus on the customer.
