Senior management is the most arrogant vindictive management I have ever seen.

Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Century City, CA

ProsFree lunch, beautiful office, and access to tons of technology.

ConsManagement is horrible and micro-managers (either you have managers that can't plan anything or you have managers that want 50k steps to change a hard disks). Incredibly long hours followed up by zero thanks for working hard. Overall the place is run with management by fear. Consequently moral is horrible, people are scared, and thus the stress is extreme.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a step back and stop purely worrying about the bottom line. Spend some money on employee moral and making the team stronger. During my time at Ares, the only training was a half baked APM training (Ares Project Management). The top people at Ares make more than 8 digits a year, make the people on the bottom actually feel proud to come to work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
