    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ALISON full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Company - talented, hard-working and dedicated people from top to bottom - (not that there is much of a hierarchy here) - a nicer bunch of professionals would be hard to find. Company is growing with a strong vision and product pipeline for the future. Opportunity to grow - lots going on - new technologies being used all the time and good people to learn from.

    Cons

    Being single and from abroad, I'd like the company to be grow beyond the 40 or so staff it currently simply to improve my social life! Otherwise, this is somewhere I hope to stay long term.

    Advice to Management

    We have a great team - please keep that standard high and only hire the best!

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I interviewed at ALISON (Galway) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This 'company' advertises jobs which do not exist. They will interview you for a position they have no intention of filling. They will waste your time.

    I spent over an hour with the CEO of Alison, interviewing for one of two jobs in my field of expertise which THEY had suggested might be of interest to me. At the end of the interview I was told that these positions did not exist, but that he enjoyed interviewing and meeting people with interesting backgrounds. Thanks a lot.

    To be clear, they currently have 48 positions advertised on their website. They are a small company with no more than 50 employees in total. You do the maths. These positions do not exist.

    To the CEO of Alison-

    Is this practice legal?
    Is it morally defensible?
    If it became public knowledge would it enhance your reputation?

    By the CEO's own admission, they are not well known in Ireland. One can only hope it stays that way.
