    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Gained critical skills required to succeed when working in an often hostile environment. The products manufactured at Allied are outstanding.

    Cons

    There are too many to mention. There is a very good reason the turnover rate is so very high. The greed of the owner is evident in every aspect of employment at Allied.

    I have been working at Allied Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Multi-faceted responsibilities keep me on top of my skills and knowledge. I love the fact that we are given many opportunities to be involved in company growth and success. My manager looks out for my best interest and always presents me with the option to expand my skill set and knowledge. Advanced training is provided for career growth. It is also very important to me to work at a company that is philanthropic and cares about the community in which we live. Nice unconventional perks too!

    Cons

    As we are very busy and a small company, there may be times that you have to pitch in outside of your primary job skill. Also, we work on several projects/tasks at a time, so you need to be able to “switch gears” quickly. If you do not thrive on activity and innovation, this might not be a good career fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the growth pace we are at and strive to make us bigger and better.
