    Best company I have ever worked for

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    _ Free snacks and drinks, employee birthday celebration, catered lunch every Friday and cool company events. Friday's night gathering to play Starcraft
    _ Everyone I have worked with in Arrayent is very humble, intelligent and competent. They know what they are doing but they don't brag about it. Very nice teamwork environment. If you have good ideas about how to do thing, it's very easy to propagate to the top since the company is small and most managers are very friendly and good listeners.

    Cons

    _ Lack of training (since people here are pretty busy) but I consider this more of a pro than a con. This company is more for curious individuals who are willing to explore and learn on their own. Prepare to dive into the complexity of system here (which is very intertwined and complex), but the end will be very rewarding. You can master a versatile base of knowledge and skills which could be very fulfilling.

    If you are a passive learner or like to learn from flashy presentation or training materials wrapped in a nice package, this company is not for you. No one will be able to spoon feed you information like other companies. However, people are very friendly and they are more than willing to help you out when you run into problem. So this pro definitely offsets other cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    _ Just keep doing what you are doing, which is to embrace employees and allow them to reach full potentials !!

    Pros

    Interesting technology. Brand name customers. Rapid growth. Salaries offered are low for the current market. Office location in downtown Redwood City is nice.

    Cons

    Management style is very "on the fly". Lack of strategic planning leads to a very chaotic work environment. Information is not shared across departments and employees are not tapped for their full potential and experience. Office space is in a basement with no windows except an atrium in the lobby. There's also no parking close by. No privacy. Paper thin walls. Engineering is in a bullpen. Salaries offered are low for the current market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a real office space. Utilize the knowledge base you've employed. Tear down the silo management approach. A start up that needs to grow up into a real business now. Get a CEO who can lead a larger company.

    Pros

    The company is working on exciting problems,and seems to be growing quite quickly; people are generally friendly and really know their stuff, technically.

    Cons

    people are very busy, so getting support or feedback can be challenging at times. Not much else besides that.

    A Cool Place to Work

    Current Employee - Technical Support  in  Redwood City, CA
    Current Employee - Technical Support in Redwood City, CA

    Pros

    Exciting technology with a group of smart dedicated employees headed by the coolest CEO in the Silicon Valley

    Cons

    Cool location leads to some issues with parking. However, Caltrain is in Arrayent's backyard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the team tightly coupled with your vision of where you need Arrayent to go. Don't grow too fast or too slowly.
