    Pros

    Way to get your foot in the door in the engineering world, and get experience with Microsoft technologies. Surprisingly good healthcare.

    Cons

    They will super lowball you, even if you are competent. You can demand raises when you realize you're being taken advantage of, but by then the damage is done. Poor benefits other than healthcare.

    Pros

    Engaging work environment, good work life balance, free soda/coffee/tea, decent office space, and a gym subsidy

    Cons

    Masquerades as a place that will treat you like a full-time employee, when really you're just a contractor. Lay-offs happen swiftly and unexpectedly, and the HR dept. ignores calls from the state unemployment office, so be sure to keep records of your offer letter.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forthcoming about the obvious changes happening to Allyis's work culture. This review is hardly an outlier, so you can expect things to continue declining unless either honesty or integrity improve.

    I have been working at Allyis (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee's are treated as employees and not just as a plug-n-play vendors.

    With company growth, there are lots of different types of roles/opportunities to work in. Allyis prides itself on giving folks a chance in their career so it is a great place for folks to start their careers and get experience, however, there are also many seasoned professionals that work here. I know some folks that have been with the company 15+ years because of the work/life balance they have with the company.

    Lots of employee events to stay connected. Recognition for outstanding effort and wins. Really good HR and helpdesk resources.

    Offices are nice and constantly improving. Nice break room with pool and ping pong tables.

    All day breakfast!

    Cons

    Because it is a consulting company, there is little opportunity for vertical growth. Horizontal growth or opportunity is pretty good though. Pay rate is just OK. Benefits are competitive, but nothing outstanding.

    Advice to Management

    Continue expanding outside of Microsoft. Provide feedback and opportunies for growth within the company or a recommended path for employees to go once they've reached their ceiling at the company.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Still some good people that work there.

    Cons

    They only look out for their own bottom line. If you want a raise or other work opportunities you have to work with your client yourself to get those.

    Pros

    Decent benefits for a consulting company but they make up for it in lower pay.

    Cons

    You are on your own with your contract. They do very little for your career or helping you get a raise. You are also expected to do your own biz dev work for which you are not compensated.

    Be nice to your employees. Pay them well and trust them.

    Pros

    Worked for Allyis for 6-7 years. Allyis was acquired by Green InfoSystems a few years back. I like the executives, and they're certainly more aggressive about pursuing new contracts and customers than the original owners. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Most of the contract work is with Microsoft. No recognition for individuals not working on large teams - if you're working on a solo gig, you aren't eligible for awards, recognition, or even a pay raise. The tuition reimbursement program - if you're pursuing a technical certification - is less robust than it was. Once your contract ends, you're on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the client base.

    Pros

    great people; great facility; never cared for the benefits

    Cons

    since they are a vendor to Microsoft,Microsoft pretty much rules every decision regarding the staff No management from the company directly. strictly Micorsoft managers who make arbitrary decisions to fire/hire contractors. No feedback on performance->No opportunity to learn from setbacks.

    Advice to Management

    Work with Microsoft to improve relations with your employees. Unless Microsoft actually owns you and you freely let it usurp all power in exchange for the bill.
