I have been working at Allegro Development full-time (Less than a year)
great culture and people, good work life balance and PTO, approachable management
Lack of documentation, but they're improving that.
I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Allegro Development (Dallas, TX) in December 2016.
We talked a number of times over a number of months, i just didn't feel like they had a good handle on a vision. They had a decent current revenue stream and Different VP's and different C level's offered different visions and alignment.
The path to growth was blocked by their own lack of vision and inability to see past a few little hurdles to cross. Real Strategy wasn't apparent and even the short term hurdles were being poorly managed.
This is good insight as to how the politics will play out once fully invested in the hire..but also was apparent that their own current leadership (at least what i could see). was lacking at strategy on how to truly become a breakout company (billion in revenue is a good start that will never happen here). no breakout growth in IT eventually equals death for a software company. - and for me complete boredom until acquisition or client spiral comes.
There are lots of Software companies like this, they find a niche. work it.. get a couple of good clients..
have a path to a small profit stream. then get trapped on what to scale and how to scale, how to penetrate other markets and verticals. Again investors will want a bigger exit. Mgmt inability to see that path will be their churn...
Advice: Change/Evolve/Innovate/ - else die.
