I have been working at Allen Communication full-time
The people at Allen are amazing. I love working with a great group of talented and hard working individuals. The work is also challenging and rewarding.
Allen presents itself as a forward thinking tech company, and there is some expectation that the culture would match that persona.

Advice to Management
Listen to employees and make small changes to show that everyone's opinion is of value.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Allen Communication (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2017.
Was contacted by company's recruiter, set up phone interview with the VP, which went ok. I was then was contacted within the next week or so for an in person interview. Interview was done by dev lead and the VP was listening since we already spoke on the phone. The dev seemed slightly uncomfortable and asked standard questions. When it was my turn for my ? and A's only two maybe got answered before I was swept off to 3 different mini rooms to take a writing test; it's really a grammar test. With running out of time, for in-person, recruiter having technical difficulties setting me up for the multiple answer gramma, online test, I had to find the VP and she immediately escorted me out but did apologize I couldn't get my questions asked/answered in time. The next day I emailed the recruiter a thank you with my questions (and requested to be passed along to VP) I did not hear a peep back. Approximately 3-4 weeks later I received a rejection email.
