    Honest Review at Allure

    Pros

    Flexible hours, carefree environment,

    Cons

    If you are looking for a company where you can grow, learn, explore your creativity while building and being a part of a great work environment then this company is not for you. Be prepared to be over-worked, micro managed, constantly second guessed with poor pay. It has a "Country Club" environment so if you're in upper management then everything is great, however, the people that are typically responsible for getting the work done is often left working 10 - 12 hour days with not even a sincere thank you. Great Job if you need to fill in time for your resume, but don't plan on having ANY kind of career here.

    Great Potential, but ultimately very disappointing to work here.

    Pros

    Fair benefits package and great Christmas party. Many great people to work with.

    Cons

    Poor leadership from the top down. They tend to surround themselves with "Yes Men". Leadership flip-flops on most major decisions leaving the rest of the staff guessing. They ask for input , but when given you do give it they not use it or use it against you at a later date. Question something about the leadership here and your gone. No free thinking here. My advise is to do your job, bite your tongue and keep your head down.

    No room for advancement, Management will stifle your growth.

    Pros

    Free Popcorn (unless you hate popcorn, like me). The culture, outside of Management, is a fun, friendly environment.

    Cons

    Management doesn't communicate. No communication coaching for your career. If you do something wrong, they'll hold it against you for the remainder of your career. They're also NOT inclusive. Very conservative atmosphere.

    Don't expect much unless you're in sales

    Pros

    Snacks and drinks are available (sometimes). Killer sales team.

    Cons

    The best managers are often marginalized and overruled by upper management, the worst managers are nothing but yes-men. Upper management tends to micro-manage too much and isn't interested in investing in infrastructure. Working from home is highly discouraged for no good reason, despite the fact that the office network has problems on the regular. Recruiting efforts seem to rely too much on personal relationships with upper management. Not much upward mobility.

    A Terminal Haven For The Mediocre. New Hires Beware - Your Time Is Limited

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you are charming enough to talk yourself into a sales position, you can milk a paycheck out of this place for the next year or two (as long as you don't do something to incur the arbitrary wrath of the CEO) that the company has remaining.

    Cons

    When the company was still making an effort to prosper, leadership's micromanagement incessantly impeded the ability of the technical staff to get anything done. For example, even $50-$100 purchases required the approval of 2 to 3 separate managers going up the chain, even sometimes including the CEO, who was never around to tend to the very things on which he insisted on having the final say. As you can imagine, not a lot gets done. Management took forever to respond to any concerns/criticism/internal company fires: While I was working there, I witnessed a product leader (who was prone to slamming doors, throwing/breaking equipment) relentlessly frustrate and anger the technical staff - programmers and QA/testing. The staff complained about this guy for months. By the time anyone from management sat down to talk with him, several developers had already handed in their 2-week notice. The development manager and head of QA left shortly thereafter, followed by yet a few more developers shortly after that. By the time the problematic employee was fired, there were only about 3 technical employees left in the company. Rather than addressing this incident with introspection, ("Perhaps we should address hostile, glorified JIRA administrators before they chase away the team members that matter?") management's tone was one of indignation. The company has no plans to hire more technical/development staff, and currently has no technical staff working on their flagship product, (a digital sign system, which is running on 10+ year old Microsoft WPF technology), and thus has no one addressing the technical problems plaguing this product. Because of the consistent problems with the product, clients are dropping AGS left and right. Rather than bringing on more developers to fix the broken product (or better yet, resuming development on the new one that the toxic product leader brought down in flames), leadership has opted to bring on more salesmen, with the intent of selling a defective product in the hopes of keeping the company alive a little longer. How much longer do they need the company to stay afloat? Long enough so that the upper management meets the time requirements specified in the Christie buyout contract, and so that they don't have to give back the six-to-eight figure sums of money they made on the backs of all of the hard work of the people who made the company what it once was.
