    I have been working at Allegro Development full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Friendly and easy going work environment.
    Good industry experience knowledge available to you.

    Cons

    Constantly playing catch up because of bad practices and quick fixes.
    Constantly changing priorities that have nothing to do with enhancing the product or your career and more to do with uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees instead of treating them like man hours.

    I worked at Allegro Development full-time

    Pros

    Free parking, soda/tea/coffee, lunch on Wednesdays, gym membership to the YMCA, company-provided laptop and backpack. Nice location with an attached Starbucks downstairs and decent lunch options around. Casual dress and slightly flexible hours.

    Cons

    Extremely crowded office without cubicles (the desks are in kind of half-wall cubicles so everyone can see everyone), making it hard to concentrate or focus. It's a struggling company with high turnover in higher-level positions, which in turn causes issues for lower-level employees. Working there is just a bit negative and dreary. The work you produce is mediocre and done on extreme timelines, no matter the department you're in. It's very corporate.

    Advice to Management

    The Dallas office clearly hasn't been updated since you moved in in 1998 and it shows. New carpets (hardwoods...) and a fresh coat of paint would do the place a world of good.
