  1. "Review of the ALS Group"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at The ALS Group full-time

      Pros

      People are nice and they invest enough time to train.

      Cons

      The business is somehow more focused on insurance compliance.

      I worked at The ALS Group full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      None, don’t waste your time.

      Cons

      I believe the owner and “his entourage” enjoy the revolving door . It makes them feel better belittling and firing people. They can’t manage and run a business like normal professional people. If they didn’t disparage and fire people they will not feel ok. They like action in this office, lol. They should make a movie about this office, a horror one will do the job. I believe Sigmund Freud himself can’t solve their...

      I worked at The ALS Group full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      There are no pros to working for this family owned business. Nepotism at its best and no one is trained properly. One or two insurance experts within the organization (of 15 people) and the rest are sweat shop workers.

      Cons

      Minimum required hours per week is and has always been 55/60. They will not mention this in your interview. Also, do your research. Check with former employees by using Linkedin. Longest tenure is 10 months (for a 25 yr old company), that's alarming. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU ACCEPT A POSITION HERE.

      Advice to Management

      Stop micro managing. Let people work normal working days. Provide actual training. Hire a professional management staff.

      Pros

      Very nice people, but be carful who you trust.

      Cons

      Poor management. Hiring manager doesn't give complete details on job description. They bate and switch. One thing is explained, but when your hired it's all a different story.

      I worked at The ALS Group full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      None. The place is a shoot by the hip company. No planning, no growth no opportunities. This is a poorly run group - I don’t dare say company.

      Cons

      Place is a modern day sweatshop. Long hours and for no reason at all. Not enough business to support that kind of commitment.

      Advice to Management

      Get rid of the entire management.

      The base salary was competitive.

      Cons

      Small minded leadership. Owner and Administrative Partner demean and humiliate many of their employees. There is no mentoring or training. Employee turnover rate extremely high, they treat people as if they are disposable.

      Pros

      Pros are very limited. Good salary Health insurance after 1 month 401k

      Cons

      Working here is a joke...constant and massive turnover, no work-life balance (the unwritten expectation is that you work 60 hours at a bare minimum), and management really needs to learn how to work with people, not just talk down to everyone. Oh, and just because someone has been with the company for a long time and started as an assistant doesn't mean they should manage people...ever. This person in particular was...

      Advice to Management

      A certain partner really should read some management books...might I suggest one minute manager? Because she certainly doesn't know how to talk to ANYONE like a human ever.
