    I have been working at Aternity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, high tenure, product serves a market need.

    Cons

    Focusing too much on getting small improvements shipped rather than fixing big problems or adding big features.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect enterprises to absorb software at the same pace as consumers.

    I worked at Aternity (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Aternity has a nice product although the market is becoming more and more commoditized. Management is solid, and salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    The company's roots are in Israel, so much of the management is (or was) Israeli. Aternity had a habit of preferring to hire Israeli employees in the US rather than US employees. It seemed to me that Israeli employees got more opportunities than others because they spoke hebrew, etc. When I was there half of the US office was Israeli and every Israeli that worked in the US office was promoted at some point while I only witnessed one promotion of a US Employee. I grew tired of Aternity's habit of "selling the future" and selling products that were just ideas and not in development. I did not find it very ethical, and I felt that I was being asked to mislead customers. They would sell product as if it was really for production, and once the customer purchased the product they would rush to develop it, essentially using the customer as a test case without them signing up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop preferring and promoting only Israelis. This will eventually get you into trouble. Don't lie to customers. Be ethical.


  3. Aternity was a good place to work: good people; small company growing pains.

    I have been working at Aternity as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Aternity gives businesses insights into what the world is like for the end user. That is something you just can't get when monitoring at a high level (e.g. servers, networks, databases, etc.). This empowers leaders and senior managers to make informed decisions about resource allocations.

    Cons

    The product is complex and difficult to fully understand and grasp. This applies both to the users of the product (not realizing what it can do for them, how to best implement) as well as those supporting it (it takes upwards of a year to start to feel comfortable with the product).

    Advice to Management

    Better on-boarding and more training.
