For the most part the company seems equal between men and women. However, there are a few department managers who would very much like to keep it a man's world and seems only to promote men and not women. This is NOT across the board - only in a certain department.
Nothing in place to further your career. The don't really encourage any extra training, workshops, continued education, etc.
Overall compensation for your work
I will say the pay is mediocre but the benefits aren't bad as a salaried employee
Allied really tries to have a work-life balance - they seem to have this one figured out.
The company is very stable and actually growing. As long as you do your job, you will keep your job.
Suggestions for improvement
- Pay your people what they are worth, offer tuition assistance and also offer everyone seminars, training and continued education. You hire smart people - use and expand their knowledge and their skills.
What I like about the company
Allied is a good stable company with good people. The benefits are good, the pay is okay but overall it is a desirable place to work. As with everywhere you work, there is good management and bad management - good departments to work in and bad departments to work in. They do have good benefits.
What I dislike about the company
No upward mobility, no opportunity for training or education. Also, there is no tuition assistance.
