Awesome technology, Volatile management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Emeryville, CA

ProsAmazing technology, talented people, flexible schedules, free food and drinks. Aspera's technology is top-notch and there are many talented people that contribute to making it a success. The founders are brilliant. Schedules are flexible and the refrigerators are stocked.

ConsAlthough schedules are flexible, the people praised for doing the best work are the ones that stay the longest hours. Senior Management works until 2 or 3 am every day and everything is "urgent." There are many blow-ups in the office. Lots of talking behind-the-back.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about what you are going to say before you say it and keep it professional. Plan better so everything isn't so frantic.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
