    I have been working at ArrowStream full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Dynamic work environment with potential to learn and grow internally. Exposure to various facets of business. Very strong technology product that is unique in the market and driving great savings for clients. Always question the status quo.

    Cons

    Can be a revolving door at times- mostly because dynamic work environment isn't for everyone. Sometimes cross functional collaboration isn't as efficient as it should be- that can also be attributed towards constantly fluctuating business requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage employees and start working towards structuring recurring business processes and market the products to non-food clients too. The scope is vast if channeled properly.

    Pros

    No matter what department you're in, you'll have great coworkers.
    The company is making a concerted effort to develop and promote from within.
    The company's proprietary technology is top notch.

    Cons

    Working for a small company isn't for everybody. It can be a difficult transition for people who are accustomed to the structure and formality of a larger organization.

    It often feels like senior management's assessment of the business and the employees falls into simple narratives. If you or your ideas don't fit the current story, it can be a challenging place to work.

  3.  

    Opportunistic.

    Pros

    ArrowStream is extremely collaborative, very supportive and open-minded regarding innovative practices. This is a team that is inclusive, allowing decision making to be shared across subject-matter experts regardless of seniority or title. Overall, the opportunities ArrowStream supports are endless, which really shows their value and trust of talented employees.

    Cons

    Because ArrowStream is so entrepreneurial, the challenge of this culture is that if you're someone looking for consistency and structure this may not be a likely fit for you. Flexibility and willingness to try new things are the norm at ArrowStream, so be ready to step up to the plate and explore the unknown to identify new best practices. Change is the only constant, but for ArrowStream this works well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue giving feedback-positive and constructive-to your teams. The levels of transparency have really grown over the last few years at ArrowStream, and in turn the trust of employees has also increased. Keep this up.

    Pros

    some fun co-workers and good customers

    Cons

    - Too many cheifs not enough indians
    - Only open to one exit strategy
    - Very poor track record of good executive hires
    - Business model fundamentally broke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AS may not make it as a going concern. Way too many people counting the money versus people out there making it. Logistics doesn't make money and market for the technology application is very small. Not sure how firing the entire board solves anything.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Collaborative team environment; strong, competent leadership; promotes social corporate responsibility; entrepreneurial environment; fun co-workers; opportunity for career advancement; I am encouraged to "own" my job; located in the loop

    Cons

    Company is continually exploring new ideas and new avenues. Although this creates an environment that changes frequently, it is the environment that any great small business should have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that management should consider revising its dress code policy to allow flip flops during the summer :)
