    Organized chaos, with a a growing company

    Sales (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsThe opportunity to learn in a fast pace environment and the ability to have your voice heard and ideas implemented is always an important aspect for those starting off in their careers.

    ConsAll growing companies suffer through growing pains, Arista is no exception. Streamlining the workforce is an ongoing struggle as Arista.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Run for the hills - don't waste your time here. I wouldn't wish employment here on any of my enemies.

    Sales Assistant (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    Pros- Because it is a small company, you are able to "wear a lot of hats" and do more than the standard requirements.

    Cons- Employees are undervalued.
    - Managers micromanage their employees (employees have to write what they do every hour, cannot talk to other people in other departments, get in trouble if you go over your break time by one minute, etc).
    - Salaries are way below market value - think minimum wage. They never give raises either, so don't bother asking.
    - No "real" programs are used for work. Programs used here aren't used by other companies, so when you are looking for other jobs, the experience you learn here are useless.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf management can't pay employees decent wages, they should at least do other things to make their employees happy and want to work there so the turnover rate isn't so high.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you have no experience and are in need of a job this place is for you.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWill hire and train you if you have no experience. If you are Chinese that is a HUGE bonus to them.

    ConsLow pay. Starting is $10 even with experience maybe $11.
    Upper management doesn't have a clue what's going on.
    Was shunned for taking a breaks.
    Hr and management are the same people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want your employees to stay you should treat them better and pay them more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Dont waste your time unless you absolutely desperate.

    Computer Technician/Assembler (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsIf you have absolutely no experience, they will hire and train you to assemble PCs.

    ConsRidiculously low pay. You can make more at some fast food chains. They dont care about you and in my short time there the morale of employees was very low. Everyone complained about their wages and I cant fault them on that.

    Also, it felt like I was working in a third world country. Everyone spoke in Chinese and some workers will talk crap behind your back in Chinese. Management? What management? HR people are the bosses.
