  1.  

    A great place to learn and gain experience, but not to grow.

    I have been working at ariela-alpha

    Pros

    All coworkers are very friendly and helpful.
    You gain much experience in a relatively short amount of time from the many varied tasks.

    Cons

    Too much is expected of employees when there is no hope of a raise or promotion. The owners do not care much about the employees or retaining them, but only about the bottom line.
    Horrible family health insurance plan.

    I worked at ariela-alpha full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Staff is nice
    Lots of Jewish Holidays off

    Cons

    Horrible training
    Very little transparency from senior management (I rode the elevator with the owner once and she didn't utter one word to me)
    Lack of diversity
    Designs used were very unoriginal and boring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more guidance to employees, rather than barking out orders!

    Pros

    In the beginning I loved working here. I learned a lot and they have a great team. They really cared about their employees and get to know you on a personal level.

    Cons

    Starting to downsize and make changes. Jobs are not very stable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the values you started the company.

    You get Jewish holidays off.

    Train your employees and allow them to grow with more responsibility.
