    Pros

    I've worked at ARI for more than 5 years, and have really enjoyed my time here. People are generally very friendly and hardworking, and the company is supportive of its employees. They don't lay workers off, they invest in us, and the benefits (100% tuition reimbursement, healthcare) are excellent. Family atmosphere is wonderful and you genuinely feel cared for.

    Cons

    Some may feel unsettled with lots of change happening, but it's just part of the growth and diversification process that means we will be around for many years to come.

    Advice to Management

    Keep asking for, and listening to feedback.

    Pros

    The people are super down to earth and approachable and I really feel like I can grow here as a professional. The benefits are pretty good, they offer 100% tuition reimbursement, and the perks are nice - gym, bistro, wear jeans everyday, fun events etc. The PIE bonus is really nice to have too because I never got bonuses where I used to work. They're also extremely stable, they don't do layoffs. As someone that's been laid off twice, I can say I probably won't leave this place.

    Cons

    Sometimes the traffic on 38 is a downer but overall location is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    pay and benefits (good but not really any better than anywhere else), location, community care, training center

    Cons

    Old boys golf club environment. Family members in made up jobs or jobs they have no qualifications to do. Have the right last name - it's all you need to succeed. Learn them before you interview or join.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk. Behave like senior leaders should. Hold people accountable.

  6. A family company that needs to shake a bad apples out of the tree.

    Pros

    Really good tuition reimbursement and an honest-to-goodness pension plan.

    Cons

    Very little accountability for certain people. HR needs some housecleaning.

    Advice to Management

    The company keeps winning these Best Of awards, but I'm wondering who is voting. You have some Gatekeepers there who have way too much power, way too little accountability.

    Pros

    ARI is a great place to work as evidenced by them making the Fortune 100 list for 2 years in a row. They offer fantastic benefits like 100% tuition reimbursement, a great employee engagement program, good deals on cars through the Holman dealerships, etc. The people and the family culture is also a huge benefit. People really care about you as a person and not just another cog in the machine.

    Cons

    I'm not sure if this is true for all the jobs across the board but offering more competitive pay would help to keep the high performers motivated and satisfied and not constantly looking for other potential opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing and don't forget how important it is to stay connected to the employees and how they feel especially during stressful times because of all the recent growth. Remember work hard, play hard!

    Pros

    Good work environment. Team building activities. Positive company momentum. Casual work culture.

    Cons

    Hours can be on the long side and having directions from different locations is a challenge. Some months can be great and others-not so much

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the path with open communication, it has lead to a very positive work environment.

    I worked at ARI as an intern

    Pros

    benefits of a small company with worldwide business growth. everyone at the company cares about your well being and genuinely appreciates your work and what you can do to help the company grow. employees are motivated to help ARI do well because they have fun at work and have things like, employee events during work, a all day long cafeteria and lounge area, and gym access.

    Cons

    the industry is not as intuitive for most since it's not an industry many people have experience with. ARI offers many learning opportunities and growth within the company to quickly adjust.

  11. Great organization to work.
