I worked at Akraya full-time for more than a year

Pros

$20 for house cleaning service twice a month...

Cons

everything you can imagine... Many pockets of poor leadership and lack of accountability exist. Change in culture not embraced or understood by any employees. The CEO is very condesending towards bottom level especially woman...

    Pros

    Housecleaning, nice people, fun parties.

    Cons

    Seems like it's all a rouse. They tell you things in the interview, and make promises they have no intention of keeping. When reminded of what was promised, you get a lot of push back. CEO has stepped down and a new CEO in place who doesn't share the same vision and a lot of the people, including me, who've been here many years feel that all that made it a great company, is now gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the core that made the company great in the first place. Get rid of new CEO and reinstate the old one.

    Hi,

    I worked at Akraya as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    You were contacted about a great job opportunity.

    Cons

    Your career becomes stagnated, they do not give raises after you are hired into a position. There is absolutely no support from from management and staff, the internal turnover rate is at about 75%, I have worked for them for 2 years and have had 4 account managers. The position is currently open and being filled by someone who was the receptionist last year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to care more for your employees than the clients that you support. Support your contractors and help them achieve career goals. Whoever thought of the tag line wasn't a contract working for you.
