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.

Not for the faint-hearted.. Gets better with time..

Sales (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

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

ProsWorking with industry leading technology
Super future potential - good opportunity as a leading disruptive technology in a large market
Motivated, qualified, fun sales team
Easy access to top management - VP and CEO are a phone call away
Proven top management - great bios

ConsWorking in the night shift
Can seem overly demanding/trying at times
Not enough brand awareness vs. top players in a competitive market

Advice to Senior ManagementSet up a team goal / target / vision to take morale to a higher level.
Conduct a quarterly town hall or send a monthly newsletter to all employees.
More regular technology training for the sales team will help.

A startup with an idea & the will to change the world!

Lead Research Executive (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Aryaka Networks

ProsGood, capable & passionate people all around. Environment is highly competitive but everything is out there in the open.

The product is awesome. I think this will break the glass ceiling and become the next big thing very soon.

I feel good coming in to work every day.

ConsLow or no performance means: You could be out real soon. What to expect? This is a high-tech startup after all.

However salaries are paid on time and sometimes, how they go about doing things makes me feel that I am in a larger established organization. In any case, this is definitely no Kingfisher Airlines.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more patient with employees. Not all of us can win a 100-meter race, but many of us can finish a marathon.

A startup with highly competitive technology

Senior Associate - Staffing (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

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

ProsOrganization
Aryaka has a clear vision, mission, and goals on where they are headed as an organization. In accomplishing the mission and goals, Aryaka emphasizes a team approach to solving problems and growing as an organization.
Aryaka has leadership, and this develops relationships with employees, managers, clients and others to help the vision to be fulfilled. Because of this relational approach, working at Aryaka is stimulating intellectually, helps build strong friendships and encourages long-term objectives for the organization.

Career Growth
I like the freedom for growth and Aryaka lets me use my own creativity.The opportunities are limitless within Aryaka and it is easy to see that the leaders are in your corner and willing to provide all of the support and assistance necessary to reach your professional goals and objectives.

Atmosphere
The people are amazing. The environment is high energy and fun. Aryaka takes care of its employees first by recognizing hard work and by rewarding its employees for it.
While we work hard to strive for perfection, no one goes unnoticed for the hard work that they do and this is why Aryaka is the Best Place to Work

ConsI feel we should be more visible in Indian market too and I am sure we will :)

Advice to Senior ManagementNone

Upper management is easy to talk to. They have an open-door policy and they treat everyone the same as if we are all one family. They are always willing to listen to ideas and to see how we are doing and what we may need. Aryaka goes above and beyond to take care of their employees. This makes a world of difference to us.
