    I have been working at Aryaka Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Aryaka Networks full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should turn the business over to professionals.

    Pros

    The offering has a lot of potential. There are not many offerings like this in the market right now. Need to redefine the company direction.

    Cons

    There are three main cons,
    1. Leadership team
    2. Leadership team
    3. Leadership team
    To top it, the management practices are very shady, they are very inexperienced and do not trust any body in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont kill the company. Please step aside and let the board bring in an experienced team.

    Pros

    There is nothing positive to share about this company other than a few employees who are working hard without any appreciation

    Top Management is slowing down company growth and must be removed by the board. The management practices autocracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Aryaka Networks full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Aryaka Networks as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees were energenic and have a great depth of knowledge. Excellent product and future of the product.

    Cons

    Company with held paychecks for two months. Company lacks infrastructure and knowledge
    other than engineering. Major Misrepresentations in the interview process. The strategy to have everything run from India will destroy the US base sales and support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit running the start up of having the only goal to sell the company for millions instead of a profitable company for long term in the USA. Understand the functions that are needed in a company beyond engineering.

    Pros

    Truly next generation and disruptive! It takes a lot of knowledge, capabilities, experience and conviction to envision something of this sort and takes all the more courage to execute on the vision of making it a reality and delivering.

    If you want to put your job on the fast-track, this is the place. This is place to get the right set of training, mentoring, mastering and excelling all of it. There are no managers in this company - just leaders. The leaders lead by examples, are extremely hands-on, technically driven, hard-working and has so much business acumen allowing you to get it right the first time and every time. Now imagine all of this with absolutely no-nonsense, no political crap, no favoritism and so forth - the perfect recipe for success. For performers, this is the place to be. If you are someone who are looking for a place to doze off.. go find some other place.

    Cons

    nothing I can think off..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are the best and cannot ask for more.
