    I worked at ALM full-time

    Pros

    People are genuinely nice, good work life balance, brands are solid and have a lot of respect in the marketplace.

    Cons

    No one knows the parent company so one is always explaining what ALM is, lots of new senior management, including a new CEO. Company is clearly getting ready for a sale so cutting costs whenever and wherever possible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and you will get much more out of them.

    I worked at ALM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some really smart, hard-working people

    Cons

    Those same people that would succeed in almost any environment are doomed to failure in a company that simply does not fit into a changing industry. The stress created from trying to solve an unsolvable problem is exacerbated by senior management infighting and a general sense of doom.

    Advice to Management

    Admit the inevitable and focus on the areas of the company that are sustainable in at least the short term. Stop pitting middle management against each other to create new revenue streams that will never exist. Cuts should be made strategically in one fell swoop, the constant small downsizing moves wear on the remaining employees.
