    Pros

    Really flexible work options, work-life balance, very passionate, bright, driven employees, opportunities for international travel and assignments. If you prove yourself as a strong contributor, the organization will do everything they can to support your development.

    Cons

    Working on global teams means at times you need to stretch outside of 9-5 for meetings. Colleagues are usually very respective of work hours, but it's common to once in awhile have a meeting at 7am or 7-10pm depending on your role. As with any small company, resources are sometimes an issue.

    Pros

    Nice people, very mellow slow pace, thoughtful colleagues

    Cons

    Need business professionals to run the company. Several layoffs already in 2013 and 2014. Circling the drain. Salaries lower than non-profits.

    Advice to Management

    Get a professional president and a real board, stat!

    Pros

    Aperian has changed the way I look at jobs. For most people, and I was one of them, a job is something to pay bills and is fundamentally draining. AG is a concrete example of a job as nourishment not only to its clients, but its employees. I can't speak for others, but I for one slept soundly these past two years.

    Cons

    I enjoy hating nasty coworkers, but have been let down by this crowd. There has been no one to avoid or dislike. This was most apparent at lunch hour, where I found myself having a delightful time with any who sat down to join me.

    Advice to Management

    Work less

    Pros

    1) Diverse, fun, dedicated, and extremely friendly PEOPLE. In a typical work environment, you might have one or two people who you can talk to or even a group who you typically grab lunch with. But at AG, you can walk up to anyone (senior leadership included) and ask if they would like to grab a cup of coffee. 2) The mission - I did not even think that a company like this existed! Our mission and our profit is based on helping institutions overcome cultural barriers for better business and happier employees. Not only is it a great conversation starter at networking events, but it's also just something to be proud of! 3) The Global Reach - we have 80 employees around the world but we have over 200 associates who work for/with us as well! 4) Our tools - GlobeSmart is the coolest, most interesting, accurate and user-friendly tool that you will find out there. It's like an online Bradt guide but with sample phrases, videos, and activities! Needless to say, we take pride in being global nerds. 5) Flexibility - Whether you have an emergency or just have small kids to attend to, AG listens and accommodates. Many employees work from home, have spontaneously taken a few days off, and are able to manage other duties. If you are interested in helping another department, they welcome that as well!

    Cons

    1) Lacks a clear career path 2) Not as competitive salary 3) It's that 8 to 5, on your desk/computer kind of job 4) Maximizing resources 5) Benefits are good, but could be better
