I worked at Aristotle Web Design

Pros

Steady paychecks, collaborative atmosphere, depending on your team you will have great management support.

Cons

Lots of meetings, no training, not consistent on how things are done and I have found the terminology used is not consistent with the industry norm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide better training, give regular reviews, get a research and development team to stay on top of the industry instead of being so busy you fall behind.

    Pros

    The projects are challenging and client roster includes some top-tier names. There is a lot of camaraderie among the line-level employees and most everyone is willing to take time out of their day to assist or train you on new concepts. Work/life balance is good with not a lot of nights or weekends unless your projects are behind. They are lenient on your work schedule, depending on your role.

    Cons

    There is a serious lack of process that creates a long list of cons. It seems like every project becomes a fire drill because another team dropped the ball or someone missed something in the requirements gathering.

    For being a web development company, they always seem to be behind the curve in terms of the latest techniques or trends. There always seemed to be lots of talk and no action on improving that process.

    Salaries seemed to on the low end for production/account people and very low for developers/designers. The bonuses for good performances used to be fair to good then they slowly dried up.

    The management structure is very loose and it's unclear on who is accountable when things go wrong. Expect to be thrown under the bus if a project is taking a lot of heat for being late or over budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a consultant to establish a process to ensure that everyone is working towards the same goal. Focus on team building and company culture. Encourage and invest in cutting edge technologies even if they don't pan out. Create incentives to put carrots out there for the talented people so they don't jump ship for bigger salaries.

    I worked at Aristotle Web Design full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual work environment, many kind and helpful employees. Some employees will step up and take a new hire under their wing and try to help them get the hang of things. Monthly meeting/get together that highlights what cool things have been done or made live recently.

    Cons

    Stifling atmosphere. No R&D team, in fact several of the old timers with the company often view new technology and ways of doing things as a fad and are distrustful, and wary to try them out. No organized plan for getting new hires up to speed or trained in things they'll need to know. Most employees do things their own way, with no standards followed across the board, I will note they were trying to work on that but with so-so results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do reviews! I would have appreciated getting a review at some point while I worked there. Promote and provide an atmosphere that allows for feedback from employees on how things are going, what has them worried or excited, etc.

    No opinion of CEO
