    I worked at Arista full-time

    Pros

    interesting and stimulating work, working with people and helping them to build a travel for their needs. The company grown during those days.

    Cons

    Bad atmosphere with colleagues and lots of pressure. Salary was low, and we had to do so many works.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a good manager in order to motivate the team. Encourage your people is a good thing if you want them to work efficiently.

    Pros

    sick and PTO days to not work here for another minute.

    Cons

    This is the type of job where " you need a paycheck for any wage, put up with 3rd world language barriers and think they are talking crap behind your back but they really are, take on bull crap and get blamed for something you didn't do, contradiction decisions and very poor management, lack of encouragement and no recognition of achievements, pointing fingers before an explanation, double standard CEO" kind of place. And quote from an earlier review, "I would not want this on my worst enemy..." Not even on Justin Beiber....well maybe. I'd use curse words but glassdoor wont let me. That is how despicable this place is.

    Advice to Management

    there is no hope
