I worked at Aniden Interactive full-time (More than a year)
The owners do their best to ensure every employee is treated equally. I was full time, but I sat on site at HP, Inc. I know I had better benefits than the HP employees and a better PTO package. They even offered a better 401K package than HP! Everyone is accommodating and upfront about what to expect.
The only thing I found frustrating was, because the company is still relatively young there isn't a lot of experience dealing with "outside the norm" situations. I had to take an extended leave that required short term disability, and there wasn't any guidance on filing or steps to complete. Fortunately, the owner was persistent enough to get everything worked out. You have to love a place that has your back!
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aniden Interactive (Mountain View, CA) in September 2011.
I was interviewed for a Flash Developer position.
Their Mountain View location was more like a satellite office with only 3 staff members. I'd love to take their offer if there were more people in the office to work with. Most of their previous projects are for HP. Check out their web site. Great stuff.
