    "An industry follower and not a leader"

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

    Pros

    There is no need to be an industry leader as the company will only improve their bad product after competitors have introduced new products that are much better. There is no documentation on the original code that was written 15 years ago; so there is a minimal amount of work required by employees to improve the product since it does not work. That is why all clients need custom built solutions and the consultants must come up with these solutions. This allows the consultants to earn more money and get offered full time oppportunities from clients at better rates.

    Cons

    Continually do not make sales due to the fact that the product does not work as it should. In addition since the sales demos are used with fake data it is tough to answer questions related directly to the present market activities. Due to the fact that every year the sales quota is missed there are no bonuses offered.

    Advice to Management

    There is a need to hire a new executive team that fully understands the market place. In addition there is a need to update the product so that it meets the need of the market place for today and not for the market place 10 to 15 years ago as the market place has dramatically changed in the last 5 years.

    Pros

    Dynamic team, a lot of smart people. Great Middle management.

    Sales, services and RnD have been able to drive a great product.

    Recently a couple of middle managers seems to have been promoted to the right places (finally), lets hope this takes effect soon.

    Marketing, positioning and industry footprint has improved a lot lately

    Cons

    Top management have been chaotic and very bad for a long time, and it have not been improved with the latest round of chaos. Top management have constantly been saved by some individual great middle managers.

    For services team work life balance does not exist with the amount of travelling expected.

    Horrible communication and involvement downwards.

    Advice to Management

    Don't send emails that gives the appearance of being written by a drunk person

    Pros

    Co-workers are a really good people.

    Cons

    A small company whose growth is stunted by a continuous poor management and broken code. The company is run by a dictator and the CEO is his head puppeteer and the rest of the dysfunctional executives are his marionettes puppets! Employees are often subjected to vulgar language, sexual comments and unprofessional work environment. This company discriminates against women and minorities. No career path or growth opportunities. Raises have been cut and no bonus payouts for the general population…all investors and executives care about is their BIG payout!

    Advice to Management

    Need to replace majority of the executives including the dictator - which will happen when the investors sell.
