I have been working at Arete Associates

Pros

The company performs research and development in many fascinating areas. Employees are encouraged to be creative and win new business through SBIR proposals. Management looks for and rewards technical excellence.

Cons

Much of the work is highly classified, making it impossible to share the exciting technical developments with friends and family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As the company grows, we need to take advantage of the increased ability to work collaboratively, while being careful to maintain the entrepreneurial spirit.

    I worked at Arete Associates

    Pros

    Company is healthy and growing

    Cons

    Company growth has occurred so rapidly that some poor choices were made in hiring especially in support staff. Company did not correct the problems soon enough, impacting the rest of the group. Too much new management means too much change and decisions that are not consistent with existing Arete culture. Some groups work very well together, and other groups have major communication lapses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down the growth. Try to promote within when possible instead of bringing in so many outside faces that don't truly understand the Arete culture. Restructuring was a mistake. Improve communication downward to employees.
