House of Cards

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Milpitas, CA

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

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

ConsPassive 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 Senior ManagementUpper management should turn the business over to professionals.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's time for some grownups to run this company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementDont kill the company. Please step aside and let the board bring in an experienced team.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

One of the worst run companies in the valley

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Aryaka Networks full-time for more than 3 years

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementHire capable and seasons people to run the company, as well as sales and marketing teams.

Fast paced startup with major potential

Product Marketing (Current Employee)
Milpitas, CA

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

ProsOne 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.

ConsAs 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 Senior ManagementImplementing a good feedback system could help generate great ideas for morale boosters.

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

A Very Challenging Company

Consultant (Former Employee)
Milpitas, CA

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

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

ConsCompany 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 Senior ManagementQuit 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
