    Business is booming for Allison Transmission. They have a good hold on the market and an outstanding product.

    I worked at Allison Transmission full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Product lines are extremely competitive worldwide so the business outlook is generally positive even when the economy has a downturn. The salaried workforce is intelligent and energetic.

    Cons

    Some members of management can be petty and advancement isn't always on how one performs but how well one knows the powers that be.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have less politics and more objective reviews of your employee's performance to base promotions and salary increases.

    Pros

    Great bonuses! If you are willing to contributing to the success of the company, the rewards are amazing. iComp this year was record breaking!

    Cons

    Still too many GM lifers who want to complain about change. It is time for Allison to be free of the past.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on improving the culture. You are moving in the right direction, just not fast enough.

    Pros

    Company has a lot of stability. Shouldn't have to worry about outsourcing jobs for years to come. If at all.

    Cons

    Pay increases are non-existent. Work load has doubled, pay has remained the same. Union talks a good game, but no results. Unless you're a problem employee then they're great. Bonuses for hourly are a joke. Always done unexplained reason it always goes down. Employee happiness, all time low. But who cares, Allison is making plenty of money.
