    I worked at Aspire Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Management team...you can walk into anybody's room at any time and convey your thoughts...
    Very friendly and decent culture....
    You can learn a lot and get the freedom to implement new things...
    You can get friends quickly than a project

    Cons

    Lack of aggressiveness in sales....Not achieving sales targets and carry forwarding it to the next year....
    Except few PMs, others are long timers working for 5-15 years...so they rule their territory....
    HR function is a joke and HR head is not matured enough to take the company to the next level....
    Lack of bigger deals hurt the growth....
    Top managers don't feel the importance of adopting the latest technologies...so you might struck in a routine or monotonous projects...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a VP level HR person from outside....Focus more on current technologies else you will be an analog watch in the digital era....Strengthen the succession planning at every level....Get a proper Appraisal system and provide a better hike....Provide better onsite compensation.....
