    I have been working at Aasonn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Seriously, the best people in the business work here. I feel fortunate every day to work with this level of talent. I also appreciate the work life balance. Our model of largely remote work allows me to have a life. I was a road warrior in the past and was so over it. Our parternship with SAP is award winning. It makes a difference in the amount and quality of projects we get.

    Cons

    A ton of change over the last 2 years. It's been painful at times, too much work not enough people resulted in burnout, then overcompensating by overhiring and ultimately having to let people go. The pendulum is settling down now and i think we're on the right track. Our benefits have been improving, I hope to see that continue with even more programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the people. Our talent is our sweet spot - take care of them!

    I have been working at Aasonn full-time

    Pros

    Work at home, flexible hours and no micro-management. Some great talent and employees make an effort to collaborate and help each other. Travel is reasonable, and a lot less than other consulting companies. Lots of projects. Can be great if you love this type of work.

    Cons

    Company is mainly interested in sales and saving money.

    There are a handful of customer facing consultants with multiple projects. Consultants are expected to “train” the India team to do the actual work because they are cheaper. Training and validating India’s work is time consuming, and consultants are not given the hours or timeline to do it effectively. It is difficult to provide quality work with this model.

    Senior management makes a big show of employee engagement, but there is a lot of mistrust with the new team - especially when they are constantly changing.

    High turnover, both voluntary and involuntary. Because everyone is remote, we never know who has left the company. There have been organization changes every few months for the past 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Clients come to companies like boutique companies like Aasonn expecting quality work. Let the certified consultants do the work they were hired and trained to do. Let India do the setup work, and let the consultant's do the rest.

    I don't see any major pro working for this company.

    Cons

    worst leaders in the top management. They don't care about the personal development and they are very rude. very tight time lines on every requirement. Not a good company to work with. I gave the advice when i left but no body responded.

    I worked at Aasonn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The exposure to so many products so fast has really helped me in my career. Had I worked in a larger company, it would have taken a lot longer to get that much experience under my belt. Allan was great to work for and had really great stories.

    Cons

    Carrying that large a number of projects and clients at once when I was a brand new consultant made for a lot of really long days and those two years seemed like a lot longer. This is probably just because that many hours.

    Advice to Management

    Consultants are people and while I understand that in a services organization, it is competitive and profit is paramount, 15 hour days should not be so normal. I have never met the new CEO. Randy had just come on as I was leaving so I don't really identify with them as CEO.

    I worked at Aasonn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company was given an ultimatum to turn a profit this year and might be able to cook the books enough to make it

    Cons

    The company keeps hiring middle management to solve its problems. The middle management tries to pawn all of its projects off on production level employees.

    Leadership sends replies with instructions which demonstrate an intrinsic lack of understand in the business.

    Leadership take weeks off, lower level employees continually get denied for "unlimited" PTO.

    In general feels like an environment where work is constantly pawned down to the least paid employee.

    Leadership has done organizational restructures 4+ times in 2 years without seeing how they play out. Marketing branding has been redone about the same. Employees still need to enter timesheets in multiple systems.

    Employees often laid off in large numbers without warning and without their roles or processes documented, leaving the remaining employees to trial and error it together.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    I have been working at Aasonn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am not one who will stick around at a Company where I don't feel respected. At Aasonn, I feel respected. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else. There was a rough patch in 2015/early 2016 but that has been turned around with the new management team. Management listens to us and values our opinions. There is change in the air and I feel it is for the better. I am excited to continue to work here for years to come.

    A lot of the work is also remote. Aasonn values our time with our families and doesn't expect us to be on the road every week. They want us to enjoy not only our work life but our personal life as well.

    Cons

    Like any other consulting firm, sometimes it gets a little hectic with a work/life balance. But it is not a constant thing. It flows with the project schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the employees. The rebuilding of the brand is working.
