    Pros

    Easily the smartest and most creative colleagues I have ever had. Get to work with some of the best companies in the world. Top of the line facilities and work amenities. Free lunch every Thursday!

    Cons

    Some workers are a bit sensitive, can see how CEO may rub people the wrong way but he really means well and demands the best from you.

    Advice to Management

    Reward workers in public forums.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Allen Communication.

    Interview

    Front desk lady called and we eventually worked out a time for me to come. It starts out with basically a grammar test on a computer in a little room with a glass wall. I think I aced it but they say you never get to find out your results :)

    So then I get put in a little conference room and an HR guy comes in. He starts out with, "so what questions do you have?" That really irked me. I don't know if that's some silly new tactic or if he was just lazy, but it was annoying. He asked what I already knew about Allen, and I can't really remember what else. He was reading and responding to texts during the interview and even took a phone call once. He kept talking about how busy he was. Overall that guy bugged.

    Then I was sent to who would be my manager. The lady was leaning back and seemed like she hated doing this interview. Then suddenly she perked up and was really interested.

    A few days later I came back for the last part. They sent me a scenario and I was role playing my position, with a panel of interviewers as my 'clients.' It went alright, and those people were nice and professional and knowledgeable. Afterward the lady asked me how I thought it went and offered me the job. I got this funny vibe from her, maybe because previously she was so standoffish, that her friendliness was forced.

    Reasons for Declining

    They told me that most people work 50-60 hours per week and that would basically be expected of me. Benefits weren't great either. Just alright.
