    I have been working at Aeris Communications full-time

    Pros

    I would say the people and the constant growth are what's great about this company. They are looking to continuously be innovative in a space that is booming - keeping us all on our toes for what's to come next! It makes me look forward to coming to work. If you're a person who is looking to be a part of a fast-paced, high-growth company where you can really make an impact - Aeris Communications is the place.

    Cons

    I don't have any negatives about the company right now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum and excitement - it trickles down to all of the employees.

    When a company has 50% 1-star reviews, don't trust the remaining 50% 5-star reviews.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Aeris Communications (More than a year)

    Pros

    The VP & director of operations, have zero knowledge on DB and they don't trust the DBA's. They don't do their responsibilities and they expect DBA to work 24/7 without accounting the overtime hours. The director uses foul language ,is a Sadist, racist (he can not hire other than Asian Indian). No professionalism in Operations team.

    Cons

    I filed the case with Labor commissioner, Sanjose superior court too for my overtime pay. Since I filed complaint on the director with his manager (VP operations), he became a sadist.

    Pros

    Really nice and smart people are working together to develop cool technology. The company is on the road to success in the interesting, young market for cellular machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT).

    Cons

    Not so many, as they are in a startup mentality trying to do the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    The more pay the better is the mantra for all employees in the tech field.

    Pros

    Really the best experience I've had as an intern. The company looks to make your experience amazing. The program is really well designed, and the people who work there are all awesome. You get to be on a team of other interns, who are all your own age. The pay is good, and the company facilities are amazing (kitchen with coffee and some snacks, gym access for free) and it is so small that you even can get to know the CEO personally. It is a great place to intern.

    Cons

    Sometimes I did not have a lot of work to do, which did make the days slower, but it really is what you make of it - I should have asked for more!

    Advice to Management

    Really nothing. Great program.

    I have been working at Aeris Communications full-time

    Pros

    Aeris is a small company so all doors are always open for you to take advantage and getting on bigger projects as well as working directly with senior leadership that you would not find elsewhere.

    Cons

    Everyone seemed to agree that there is a lack of "culture" here at Aeris but that is a working progress at any other companies. Management does recognize that and hopefully a fix will come soon.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time getting to know your employees and have a career path development for them. No one like to be a junior employee forever (you have been there yourself in the younger days, correct?)


  10. Aeris is a real learning organization. Experimentation is encouraged and failure (with learning) is acceptable.

    Pros

    Very smart, very nice people. Cultural fit is important here. The politics are kept to a minimum. Hierarchy is not as important as ideas.

    Cons

    We're growing fast and feeling those pains. Not everyone knows each other anymore. We don't have a formal HR person or group.

    Advice to Management

    Working environment needs to be more flexible, permitting, for example, working from home.

    Pros

    Established intern program and mentors that truly put effort into developing your professional skills. On top of this, I had a great intern class and became very good friends with my co-workers. I not only learned a lot but also really enjoyed my time at Aeris.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to be proactive about getting tasks, and if you aren't you can end up sitting around with not much to do. If you are bored, talk to your mentor, they are likely unaware that you do not have work and will give you something to do. It took me a while to learn this.

    Advice to Management

    Intern pay is a little below market, probably should think about raising salary if you want to attract top interns. Give interns more responsibility, we can be trusted with important tasks.
