I worked at Allied Building Products full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Huge company, opportunity for advancement. Outside Sales offers a lot of freedom.

Cons

The freedom comes with lack of direction and no real sales training from upper management. it's easy to feel "lost" on the outside. Upper management (in the Chicagoland region) only cares about the top dollar and makes empty promises.

Advice to Management

At least act like you really care about the success of your sales people...treat them with respect.

    The system is too bueaucratic and too much paperwork is needed to get even simple processes done.

    Advice to Management

    The process needs to be streamlined and ownership given to the people below.

    I have been working at Allied Building Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ABP cares a lot about it's employees, vendors and customers. They treat them fairly and honestly. Not all of my fellow employees understand how difficult the economy is. Allied is a solid company now, and will be a strong company when the economy turns around. Do what you can to get on board at Allied.

    Cons

    Pay has not risen as quickly as we all would like. I don't know many people (outside of ABP) who have been making more money these days....

    Advice to Management

    Keep us on the right track. we'll stick with you.
