    Lunch hour is flexible too. Take your lunch when you feel hungry, not certain time
    Nice office, nice view, nice working space
    I learn a lot here from different people

    I worked at Allegro Development full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is competitive. People are generally friendly.

    Cons

    No ability to set or keep priorities. Obsessed with making long term plans, but incapable of following through on them.

    Advice to Management

    If you ever want to improve your process, you're going to have to let someone actually change it. And you need to commit real resources to maintaining change. It would help if you stop driving away all the new people.

    Pros

    Veteran senior leaders, strong middle management who genuinely care about employees and customers, Great benefits, dozens of tenured employees, energetic and family like culture, large investment in recruiting and training college hires.

    Cons

    Work / life balance can be a challenge, but management is pushing for a better balance. Conflicting priorities sometimes cause confusion. Raises over the last few years have been offensively low.

    Advice to Management

    Employees at all levels are feeling undervalued. Invest more in them at all levels. Your employees are trusted and valuable. They need to feel it, not just hear it. Reward an extremely hard working group of employees yearly with raises that are higher than inflation and a traditional holiday party that’s not in the office. Have a department besides HR plan social events.
