    I worked at Aristotle International as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Aristotle for about a year. The members of my team were generally great and there was great camaraderie. Also, because I was a contractor, I was able to claim overtime to the tune of 60% or more of my pay.

    Cons

    During the time I was there, an extremely incompetent person who would sleep at their desk, drink at work, and who kept a workspace full of liquor bottles and chip crumbs was promoted to be my manager. When I started and when this person became my manager both, I was promised to be converted from contract or at least given a raise after one year of work. When that time arose, I was denied. I subsequently left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a moreprofessional environment in the office. Interact with employees at all levels more.

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

    Pros

    location, upper management, upward mobility, flexibility

    I think the brothers are amazing to work for. They are personable, caring and brilliant. There is a reason people stay at Aristotle for many years, or even leave and come back. If you prove yourself, they will do whatever it takes to keep you and keep you happy. I started at a lower position and have gotten promotions and raises that in line with where I should be.

    They are also very flexible with schedules. I am luckily able to work from home as much as I want, which is a nice option. I often do not, because I find it harder to work that way.

    Cons

    no match on 401k, healthcare plan is not great, office needs remodeling (this is the plan for this year, so that is changing)

    Advice to Management

    Match on 401k

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule including working from home; opportunity to move ahead; family atmosphere (for those who align with the management); treating old employees really nice and granting them a lot previllages; relaxing working enviroment (no ranking); measure performance by seniority (not sure this is a pro but list it anyway)

    Cons

    high turn over rate; no 401k match; promoting bull-shit culture in the tech and IT group; senior developers constantly asked to transfer work and knowledge to India; daily meeting; outsource failure result in duplicate work and redundancy; curry smell in the hallway from 12pm to 3pm

    Advice to Management

    take a closer look at the outsource strategy; re evaulaute the outsource program
