Flexibility and good people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Aristotle International full-time for more than 3 years

Proslocation, upper management, upward mobility, flexibility

I think the brothers are amazing to work for. They are personable, caring and brilliant. There is a reason people stay at Aristotle for many years, or even leave and come back. If you prove yourself, they will do whatever it takes to keep you and keep you happy. I started at a lower position and have gotten promotions and raises that in line with where I should be.

They are also very flexible with schedules. I am luckily able to work from home as much as I want, which is a nice option. I often do not, because I find it harder to work that way.

Consno match on 401k, healthcare plan is not great, office needs remodeling (this is the plan for this year, so that is changing)

Advice to Senior ManagementMatch on 401k

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

great for working moms

Programmer (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Aristotle International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexible work schedule including working from home; opportunity to move ahead; family atmosphere (for those who align with the management); treating old employees really nice and granting them a lot previllages; relaxing working enviroment (no ranking); measure performance by seniority (not sure this is a pro but list it anyway)

Conshigh turn over rate; no 401k match; promoting bull-shit culture in the tech and IT group; senior developers constantly asked to transfer work and knowledge to India; daily meeting; outsource failure result in duplicate work and redundancy; curry smell in the hallway from 12pm to 3pm

Advice to Senior Managementtake a closer look at the outsource strategy; re evaulaute the outsource program

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
