    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Allegro Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + reasonable modern technology stack
    + most people are open minded
    + a lot of opportunity to grow - even if you're experienced

    Cons

    - a bit overcrowded, hence a lot time spent on communication

    Advice to Management

    Some structural changes seems to be a bit chaotic in first stages. It'd be good to put more focus on passing clear vision about mission.

    I have been working at Allegro Group full-time

    Pros

    Really nice people, benefits and office.

    Cons

    Some part of the software are really old, and managers put more attention to create new features that gave money instead of software quality.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on software quality. When users will be using application without any problems and errors, they will spend money there, and everyone will win. :)

    Pros

    I've been working there sice 04.2010 and still have fun doing things there. A lot of work opportunities.

    Cons

    Don't apply there if you aren't flexible and easy adopt to changes.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more careful about consequences of their changes. A lot of people loose their morale if they don't see sense of change or it takes too long.

    Pros

    There is always something different that comes to you to work on and holds your focus and can be anther stepping stone when you finish your product.

    When you have a question you need to open minded about the options that are available because common sense usually will see you through.

    Advice to Management

    Working together is always based on mutual respect that comes from having the experience as a reference. You won't learn what not to do if you never make a mistake.
