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

Pros

A handful of people. Culture is friendly but everyone knows it sucks.

Cons

Salary and management. Oh, and salary.

Advice to Management

Show some compassion and pay your employees what they deserve. Stop taking money from their pockets with your big bonuses.

    "A downward spiral of petulance, retribution, false (anonymous) complaints, secrecy, pitiful lack of management skills"

    I have been working at ALM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good vacation pay; efficient payroll staff; fairly responsive tech department

    Cons

    Poor work spaces, noisy working conditions, lack of management direction or guidance, secrecy, dreadful yearly online self-evaluation process, management ignorance of content/quality of work produced, favoritism toward employees who openly bolster management esteem, sexism at all levels of employment with women's salaries and positions stuck at low levels to justify the job titles and inflated salaries of the new hires of overpaid men, massive layoffs with no advance notice to a huge percentage of employees, resulting enormous increases in workloads for remaining employees but without any overtime payment

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees one on one; learn their strengths and weaknesses; give them a chance to be creative; share company plans with them; stop retaliating against employees who question the antiquated methods and grossly unfair treatment of most employees

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

    Pros

    There are some good people working here that hold things together, middle management is where you'll find the best people at ALM.

    Cons

    Unfortunately middle management never makes it to senior staff. They rarely promote from within, most opportunities are given to newcomers from outside the company. Office politics and strong personalities on the senior statff sour a lot of the benefits and over time usually drive out good talent.

    Advice to Management

    Strongly evaluate staff in senior positions.
