    I have been working at Allegro Development full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Below are the pros that I have experienced in the 8 years I have been here. During this time I have worked in several departments.
    -Level of industry knowledge within the organization. Whether on a project or working from the office, you have access to people that know the product and the industry inside and out.
    -Benefits and treatment of employees is OUTSTANDING. We are treated very, very well.
    -Education opportunities on the industry and our software product is available from day one in multiple mediums.
    -We are always growing.
    -Ability to transfer within the organization to other departments
    -We have a great product that is always evolving to fit our customers needs
    -Feeling of job security and stability
    -Management can recognize people that work hard and are customer focused. "Bad seeds" won't grow here or last long.
    -Transitions at the executive level are very smooth compared to what I have seen at other organizations. We are always informed on what is going on, and what to expect.
    -My managers make me feel like my work is valuable, that my work benefits our customers, and that I matter to our department.

    If you are an interview candidate, I strongly recommend Allegro. The opportunity for growth, the comfort and stability of being employed here, as well as the overall treatment of employees is something I haven't seen at other corporations. In my time, I haven't once considered leaving.

    Cons

    Its not really a con, but we work very hard. Certain crunch times such as a new version release, new component development, etc can be draining. But that will occur at any company. The upside at Allegro is that we work hard, but we also play hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the open communication, town halls and dedication to keeping employees happy (and healthy) is much appreciated.

    Not Very Accurate Screening Process Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Allegro Development in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The HR person emailed me after I applied through Dice.com, and we exchanged a few emails back and forth to determine how accurate the screening process should be. He asked to find time to do a pre-screen via telephone. The HR person is the the person who pre-screens candidates, but he is non-technical (he has zero experience as a software developer)
