    I worked at Alltech full-time

    Pros

    The biggest pro was the people: Alltech hires great employees and it's a very international team with people from different backgrounds. The hours are decent and the pay is OK, depending on your manager. You get opportunities to travel a bit and participate in a few Alltech functions. Overall a good company to work for a few years, but you need to play the political game very well to advance. It is a fun workplace overall and they have very nice offices. They trust their people and relations between managers and employees are fairly casual.

    Cons

    The culture is cult-like and doesn't allow for any questioning. You either drink the Kool-Aid or leave. The company was great a couple of years ago but now it's too focused on its acquisitions and on its annual Symposium, to the detriment of its people. There is no HR department or any structure whatsoever, which is starting to impact the company internally at this level. There is a very high turnover rate and some people get fired for no reason. The company does not invest much on its people or care for the employees, which is why a lot of people leave for competitors. They lack flexibility in terms of hours (you cannot be late by one minute, yet they never pay you for hours of overtime work and expect you to be reachable all the time) or working from home.

    Advice to Management

    The management should focus more on its employees and invest in them instead of spending millions on a conference. They should get a real HR department and give more opportunities to junior and mid-level employees instead of always listening to the same 15-20 people. Senior management preaches a lot of rules/advice that they don't follow themselves. Alltech has the potential to be a great company but it needs to get a make-over inside to give it more structure and retain some of the amazing talent they have. They need to drop their very rigid time & dresscode policies to retain younger talent. Management also needs to be more respectful of people and work/life balance (they can ask you to move countries, work overtime , travel, etc. with little to no notice).
