Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think overall the company is doing pretty well. I wouldn't complain about anything or say that we're doing anything wrong.

However, I think that if we want to become a great company, things are going to have to change to take things to the next level. That's often going to involve revising products, improving practices, and a lot of assessment of what's good and bad for the company.

    I have been working at Aspera full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Aspera is a profitable company with niche market products. The basic technology has potential to be very successful. Some employees are excellent. Good lunch menu. Free drinks. Matched 401K.

    Cons

    Employees are bullied constantly. No annual reviews. A lot of nepotism and CrossFit aficionados on the job without qualifications. Unprofessional conduct by the top management. Unfair compensation structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with minimum respect. They are people, with families, not slaves.
