I have been working at AspenTech full-time (More than 8 years)
I tell my friends, and family that I work for a 34-year old startup company called Aspen Technology. The reason I refer to the company as a startup is because we never rest on laurels, or complacent as the market leader in the industry. We have been through extremely hard times, and that is way behind us, but it is in part what drives EVERYONE to keep executing and building exciting products. The company is filled to the brim with brilliant minds who deliver time-and-time again. It’s no wonder that many of the staff in Aspen’s divisions have been here 20+ years - people really seem to like what they do. If you're a software, or chemical engineer, you're among the kings of the hill at here. It's an engineer-driven company without a doubt. Great benefits, 3 weeks starter vacation per year, top of the line medical coverage and company contribution to 401K up to 6% among others.
Long work hours that can be quite taxing for many people and it times - relentless. Growth pains with bureaucracy coupled with red tape can be a “hindrance in getting it done”. Can be slow to respond, less agile, bloated teams and coupled with a distributed work-force on different time zones can be challenging. It’s 2015, and most global companies have remote working in place, having this can be truly beneficial to all parties given commute times/weather and speed to execute.
Advice to Management
The company structure can be pretty siloed with very little cross-over between divisions. Many people have been working in their environments or cocoon for a long time and have done extremely well in those areas. It would be great to cross-pollinate the organization, and expose these functional areas to others. Having fresh new eyes in an environment can always be helpful to the company as a whole. This “short-term volunteering” should also have a direct umbilical cord to the executives communicating the state-of-the-state from different viewpoints. As Aspen has proven, strength is embodied in her diversity. You need to focus on how you are going to maintain the existing culture and protocol(s) as you grow. Keep kickin' butt!
