Not Productive or fun
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Blanchester, OHApril 16, 2019
I only worked at the Allen Company for a short time. During my time here I discovered that the work dynamics between the office and the factory was not very good. The communication between the two were poor and the work effort bad. This created many problems in the work environment ranging from orders not being completed, orders not being shipped out on time, loss in customer satisfaction and refunds for products. The company offered a fee option where a customer could pay extra to get their order expedited, this would have been fine if the company could actually guarantee that the order would arrive on time or at all. If it did arrive there was always something wrong with it, broken product, bad product was received or received after the clients events. I do not mind a fast passed environment but communication is key and this company did not have it.
Pros
full time, health benifits
Cons

This place is crazy
Manager (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COFebruary 21, 2019
The managment of this company works in a silo and just directs "subordinates" actual words used in a meeting. They dont have any original products just copy other companies. My dept was changed with in the first 90 days. Didnt tell me I had to find out when I was getting direction from someone else. Lots of conversation behind closed doors after meetings and very little to NO alignment of departments.
Pros
no real oversight from management
Cons
Everything

Very laid back family environment . Family owned and operated. Just not much room for advancement and is no longer the place for me. Management is very down to earth and caring.

Used to be a great company, but not anymore
Manager (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COSeptember 29, 2018
Company used to be a family friendly and stable place to work,but for past several years the turnover has been tremendous and morale low. Multiple management teams have been brought in of varying talent and the owner turned his back on tenured staff which was sad. Salaries were average, but then healthcare benefits were reduced and the 401K program that did not even have a company match were dropped, so compensation was reduced. There were not any performance reviews, nor chance for raises as a result. The upshot was that the work day started early and you could get out early.
Pros
Good work/life balance
Cons
Children of owner are engaged in a war and staff are the casualties

Mismanaged - too much politics
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COMarch 14, 2018
There is constant in-fighting among senior management. If you are not part of the click you will be out of luck. The overall vibe from the company is great but the is far too much in-fighting among Senior Executives.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Shady business practices - no room for advancement

Depts do not communicate with each other and there's no structure
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) –  ColoradoJuly 2, 2017
The hardest part of my job is working with someone that doesn't know what their doing and pushes 90% of the work load onto other people. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I have met and can call friends.
Pros
Owner puts on 3 company picnics in the summer months
Cons
Doesn't provide Vision Insurance, 401K and no raises

Sweat shop
Production Worker/Assembler (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COAugust 4, 2016
No one speaks english. It is like sweat shop. Big fans going that don't help. They have bells and chimes to be go back and forth to break. Being back early from break is "encouraged". I wouldn't recommend this company.
