    Pros

    Ascentis is a perfect mix of established business and startup worlds. There is new energy and total commitment to the Agile way of life. We are building on the foundations laid over the last 20+ years but building for the future.

    Not afraid to push the boundaries of technology and breaking the mould of traditional enterprise applications.

    Collaborative environment where everyone's contributions are encouraged and appreciated. Complete transparency of business decisions and company affairs

    Cons

    commute in the SF Bay Area could be an issue if you live in the East or South Bay but a flexible work environment helps mitigate that.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the focus on Innovation in product and services.

    Pros

    I have been at Ascentis for two years and during that time the company has experienced fast paced growth. It is exciting to be at a company that is actively growing, and working hard to position for future success. It is an environment where we always look at what we are doing, and look for opportunities to improve.... and that is important to me. We are heading in the right direction.

    Cons

    The snacks sometimes run out, but I think of snacks as a perk so I can't complain too much about that!

    Pros

    Great people to work with, manager fights for representatives. People lean on each other for support

    Cons

    Not enough training, spread to thin, expected to be knowledgeable in programming terminology without proficient training

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training employees. Understand client to CSR ratio is vital to success. Especially when you are selling service

    Pros

    - Nice people
    - hard to get fired unless you really get on a difficult manager's nerves
    - leadership are really experienced and know what they're doing
    - stable growth (things won't change a lot in a year)

    Cons

    - slow moving
    - not a lot of funding, so company pinches pennies on things like snacks for employees, team outings, etc
    - not much of room for advancement since the company's growth is pretty stable

    Pros

    It is a great atmosphere. The company recognizes it's employees are people and does it's best to give you flexibility.

    Cons

    Some departments are more put together than others. If you get lucky and have a great manager you will most likely be very satisfied, but the opposite is true too. Many people are spread thin and that can become problematic at times.

    Pros

    Great culture. Strong commitment to customers and product innovation. High energy, results oriented team. Very little "politics" and more people working together to "get it done".

    Cons

    All that's to be expected in a growth-mode company. But fortunately the one thing that hasn't seem to slip during the growth is the focus on the customers.

    Pros

    Ascentis really values hard work, and at the same time allows for a great work life balance. Every team member is valued and all inputs are heard. Working at Ascentis allows you to make a difference and not just end up as a cog in a massive wheel.

    Cons

    Ascentis has made strides, but needs to continue to improve on its inter departmental communication.
