    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time

    Pros

    Pay was decent at the company

    Cons

    Terrible management, hostile environment. They only employ Veterans for the tax credit they get. I would not recommend working at the Boeing El Segubdo site .

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of not getting sued by employees

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get hired if you meet minimum criteria.

    Cons

    It's a leg-up company, no more. Unless you're connected it's very difficult to rise up. Compensation is lacking, reviews don't occur, there is little chance for advancement or bettering yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, you're making plenty of money for Steve Jones and I'm sure he's happy. You can't change the way you do things so advice would be senseless.

    Pros

    Not much pros besides flexible work schedule for students.

    Cons

    Too many to even list on here.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to look out for its employees with better compensation and benefits.

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time

    Pros

    I met 1 manager with a great heart and attitude. He encouraged my efforts and did what he could to help me whenever and wherever possible.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected, extremely dishonest and often place employees without basic computer skills in positions where they become a major drain on the account and the supervisor's time Poor salary (no raises in more than 8 years), and no room for advancement. It takes a full year to earn a few minutes toward a vacation day. No personal days, no sick time and extremely poor benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The poor culture starts at the top and gets worse each time Allied Barton merges with a new company. Management is satisfied with warm bodies and bonus money for keeping overtime down. The culture has consistently gotten worse and as long as management receives decent pay, there is no incentive to change and improve.

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, decent colleagues to work with. Only problem was the upper management that all got fired at the Boeing facility in STL by the airport

    Cons

    12 hour shifts (sometimes 16 hour shifts without notification), poor training structure, high turnover right, NO vacation time and you get wrote up if your sick. Leadership from program manager all the way to shift leaders where fired by corporate.

    Advice to Management

    I wish corporate would have discovered the issue a long time ago otherwise I'd still work here.

    Pros

    Not all staff are Cutthroats or hypocrites

    Cons

    Make you work 24 hour shifts just about. If you complain they give you minimal hours. Or change your schedule and don't let you know so you get written up.

    Advice to Management

    I can't believe you changed my hours then didn't tell me. Then accusingI me of a no-show no call. I have pictures of my schedule.
