    I worked at Allied Pickfords full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay your salary on time and have leave encashment aswell, which is pretty rare in India ( however ,how they derive your leave balance is anyone's guess because no one has a track)

    Cons

    To begin with, they hire most people using a smoke screen of SIRVA, which is the parent brand and has a much larger Global presence and well managed social media presence. The fact is if you are being hired in India to do anything not to do with the delivery center in Bangalore, you are an Allied Pickfords employee. Now some facts! As you join the company, till probably 6 months you would be figuring out the correlation between Allied Lemuir, Allied Pickfords and AL Movers Pvt. Ltd. ! They have a long history and I guess they believe in keeping the history alive or simply the management doesn't care! Well, as a sales person its a mess because you need to make your prospective client aswell understand the correlation. The company size on rolls is around 30 people put together in India. There is no HR in India and for anything and everything from your leaves to your reimbursement, you are dependent on the MD! ☺️ There is no training infrastructure or support system. They would arrange for some web based training coming out of which you would be more perplexed than you were before you went for the training! ( Feedback received from my reporting colleagues who would come to me itself even after being trained) . Oh yes, forgot! These guys won't give you an appointment letter or relieving letter. Don't complain, you don't get that either when you work for a baniya ka dukaan! I was a pioneer of sorts who had to fight and get it through the intervention of the global HR. The company on an average churns the whole of its sales force in 2 years. When I took over sales , the average tenure of the sales team was around 6 months and when I left , it was the same. The number of sales people who left the sales team in last four years is more than 10 ,when at its peak strength, the team strength is 5. Many stations remain unmanned post the last one leaving as management does "due dilligence". The sales team is the most demotivated and disenchanted amongst all departments because of the poor support system and constant flip flop of the management strategy and also management inaction is too muh to bear. If you are from the industry or even a sales person with goodwill in the market, be prepared to start from scratch when you leave the company. They position themselves as a premium provider and provide services worse than local service providers. Your goodwill with the client goes for a toss. In such a situation every dept. would wash their handsoff and all would suggest to go to the MD. When you approach the MD, you can expect 3 things, first , no response for 5 days as he is "busy". Second, he would create his own statistics on industry and explain to you that its normal to have damages to shipments and would expect you to inform your client the same. Third, if you are lucky, he will appear to sound very disturbed after knowing this and ask you to write an email to him about the same and then he would write an email to another dept. And then forget about it. I could go on and on about my experience about this company, however, in short, its a career suicide, unless you are able to breach the inner cotorie of MD which consists of 2 people, who seem to be involved in every dept. notwithstanding their job titles. Favoritism is a given and be prepared to be backstabbed by one sweet speaking oldie (who by the way is one of the 2 people from the closed circle of the MD) if you have the misfortune of dealing with him.
