One of my biggest peeves with companies is managers being very communicative prior to the interview, then absolute silence after. For example, one place never called me back and refused to return my phone calls. I finally caught the guy by using someone else's phone; he sounded very surprised and said they had filled it already. Another example, I interviewed for a position 11 days ago. I followed up one week after and left a message; no return call. Another call two days later to the manager's mobile, and no return call. I got an *email* today saying they had chosen someone else.
It really bugs me that managers communicate so poorly with potential staff; to a prospective employee, I see them treating me so poorly and it makes me wonder how they treat their current staff.

I couldn't agree more. It surprises me companies emphasize the importance of communication and professionalism, but yet they fail to send at least an automatic message informing few who were interviewed.
Some argue companies don't have time, and that's selfish as if they value their own time, why don't they value the time a candidate spent to prepare and attend the interview and then left in uncertainty?
Not all companies are like that. Few days ago I got an email from a bank where I had applied informing me the position had been filled and that I should regularly visit their career site.
