    Pros

    Fast Paced work with decent benefits. Strong employees assigned larger workloads and constantly compensating for higher paid/less qualified employees they work with.

    Cons

    Stronger employees are taken advantage of and assigned unmanageable work loads with no support. Management points fingers if blame to their staff members when they should be Held more accountable.

    I worked at Almac Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay, the co-workers were very helpful.

    Cons

    The position was overwhelming, very stressful and demanding. A lot of micromanagement, along with much negativity. Note that not all managers did this but the good ones were few and far between. To give them their due, they were also overworked and stressed. I worked long hours with no positive feedback. Also you can't have a sense of humor there.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more positive feedback, stage the training, so some of it occurs after the PM gets into the job. Also, start PMs as Associates for 6 months to a year, working with a full PM, so that they have a real chance to learn the job.

    The people in production will beat you down until you are nothing..alot of favoritism and management sucks

    Advice to Management

    If you make rules make them company wide..not just for a few selected people.Since you went corporate you don't care about your workers

    Pros

    Vacation and paid holidays package, somewhat decent health benefits, flexible hours if necessary

    Cons

    Communication in general has always been an issue, within a dept, or between depts. As a whole, company moral has dropped even as the company continues to expand. Management needs to value their efficient employees and hold other employees accountable instead of "Looking the other direction". There is consistent employee turn over, favoritism, disregard to employees input on processes or ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Train yourselves on better communication and learn how to deal with social issues.....it starts from the top. Care about the employees who actually make an effort everyday they walk through the door and build a team within. Deal with issues head on!
