    I have been working at AlertEnterprise full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    1. Technology Driven AlertEnterprise is a technology driven company, we use the most advanced technology in our product. Front end we are using AngularJS 2 and we are on the way to migrate to Angular 4.0. Gulp/Webpack/NPM/Node technologies are also there. Backend we are using so many different technologies for different projects, i.e. Microservice architecture + docker + cloud + JavaEE + python + scala + machine learning....

    Cons

    Fast work pace & Personal capability challenge The work pace is fast here. Because we are a fast growing startup, our team is quite dynamic. We usually finish a project in 3-6 months. You need to keep it up. If you are about to use a new technology that you never used before, then you need study after the work, because we expect you to use it and work on it ASAP. Challenges are there, but it's also a huge gain for us...

    Advice to Management

    1. Hire more and more talents. Because we have so many high profile customers, so many projects, we need to expand our engineering team. 2. Start launching deep learning project. Deep learning is a changing force which is gonna overturn each field/industry. Our business will be changed by Deep Learning sooner or later. We need to catch up with it and stay on top of it to lead the entire business. Though we have a lot...

    I worked at AlertEnterprise full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There are no pros unfortunately.

    Cons

    The level of nepotism and arrogance is astounding and unlike anything I have ever experienced. Hire people who have no reason being in the roles they are because they are family and alienate anyone who thinks critically. The lack of any formal processes and the constant bait and switch from management has led to a level of employee turnover never seen in my entire career. AlertEnterprise is really a consulting company...

    Advice to Management

    Realize that past success is no guarantee of future success and that your people are your largest asset. Public humiliation is not what leaders do, it's what bosses who lack confidence and people skills do. Being a visionary does not mean you know how to run a company.

    I worked at AlertEnterprise full-time

    Pros

    There really aren't any positive comments I can make.

    Cons

    The list is long but here are some highlights. Arrogance. Company leadership is arrogant but that arrogance is based on outstanding performance that happened over a decade ago. (they had a very successful acquisition of a prior company) There have been a near total lack of meaningful accomplishment at AlertEnterprise. Turmoil. There has been a rapidly rotating cast of external management talent that has come,...

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about what is working, what is not working and why. The answer might be in the mirror.

    Pros

    Salary package is decent. The CEO is a very ambitious guy who has ingenuity and vision for the future. HR is helpful if needed.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is poor and sometimes you'll have to work 16-20 hours a day. The product is put together is a slapdash manner and has tons of bugs which are not addressed. Cafeteria has only a coffee machine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in making profits but please think about providing a better work-life balance for employees.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at AlertEnterprise full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Job provides income to pay bills and support family. Also gain good technical experience, plus skills in lying to customers and misrepresenting product capabilities.

    Cons

    100+ hour work weeks wear you down after while, no balance of work and personal life. After 6 yrs, product is still barely more than beta quality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting greed influence every decision. Stop pretending that Fremont CA is India. Consider giving the values of honesty and integrity a chance!

    Pros

    Clear vision by the company, software which significantly increases safety, reduces the risks of terrorism, internal IT attacks and damage. Really intelligent and dedicated employees who believe in the product, do amazingly creative solutions for a wide variety of customer needs. Management is still a little bit in start up mode, but very caring about the staff. Recent partnership with SAP is opening doors in every...

    Cons

    Work/life balance is still not even, the company is still scaling to the larger commitments, but the opportunities for individual growth is huge. The work loads are probably what you get anywhere in Silicone Valley with a high growth software company.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency and clarity around the objectives, revenue and future would be helpful.

    Pros

    Convergence of Physical and Logical security is a great concept and goal for certain industries, hard working developers and technical teams.

    Cons

    Most customers don't have a demand for what is being offered. Very high turnover within entire organization. Technical team is brought into ever sales cycle and constantly being asked to build demo systems of what they could develop, which interferes with the ability to actually develop.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a strong CEO to run the business.
