    Pros

    Interesting technology, but can be easily replaced or beaten by competitors with more funding, because the core service of the company is just a reseller of internet bandwidth.. They buy the BW from top tier ISP, then resell to subscribers to make a little profit.

    Cons

    - business model may not last long
    - confusion from inexperienced managements. They hire people blindly, then fire them when they realized it's over hire. So be really careful when you join the company. Make sure your position is secure.

    Advice to Management

    make sure you add unique techniques in your service, so you are not easily replaced.

    Pros

    None. Simply awful. Don't believe the positive reviews, they are bogus. management compels the employees to submit them.

    Cons

    Poor results. Arrogant and Inept leadership that talks down to its employees and discourages feedback. They basically manage through harassment and as a result have very turn over. This place is a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror. Maybe it time to bring in a professional management team?

    Pros

    The product is good and the Engineering Head is cool.

    Cons

    Very bad culture with a lot of micromanagement. There is no professional environment. The HR sucks.
    No trust and respect and they want to investigate everything even your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Please start building some values in the company rather than just making money.

    Pros

    I'm trying really hard, but can't seem to come up with any. I did make a few good friends there.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive upper management style. Leadership is horrible and more focused on micromanaging every employee than business execution and vision. Just a horrible place to be at.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should turn the business over to professionals.

    Hire capable and seasons people to run the company, as well as sales and marketing teams.

    Pros

    One of the things I've most enjoyed during my tenure at Aryaka has been the growth opportunities and helpfulness of everyone around you. I found the work culture to be very supportive and helpful, allowing me to focus more on producing great results and not on playing office politics.

    The company is going to go places, and it's good to see everyone working together to help get there rather than trying to stab others in the back in hopes of earning a bigger piece of the pie.

    Cons

    As for every startup, the company has its ups and downs. The market is not always predictable, so there are slow months, but thankfully management is always looking for ways to improve so morale stays positive.

    Advice to Management

    Implementing a good feedback system could help generate great ideas for morale boosters.
