Not Bad Experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsDecent company with an acceptable amount of pay check.
Nice benefits with health, dental and vision.
Nice working environment for the employees.

ConsPoor employee guidance.
Depends only on clients evaluations without performing their own employee evaluation.
Do not support and do not allow considerable time to newly hired employees to build their potential.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to the employees in each office. Make frequent evaluations accurately without only depend on clients' evaluations. consider their concerns.

    ARA does their best to promote work-life balance. Overall, it's a great company to work for.

    I have been working at Applied Research Associates


    Pros: - Great work-life balance: support working remotely, taking time off, etc. - Competitive pay for tech writers and support staff - Variety: you never know… Cons: - Very little upward mobility for tech writers/support staff (see job security). Management positions are filled by the same person for decades. If you want… Advice to Senior Management: This is a solid company. It would be great if you could work on reducing the length of time potential hires… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
