    Pros

    You get paid on time.
    Most of the people are nice and work very hard

    Cons

    Management has some how deceived the board of directors and investors that they have a clue. They don't. They make things up on the fly, and when it doesn't work they change direction, again, and again, and again. The brunt of these changes is felt by the worker bees.
    The sales team is a revolving door. Can't say I blame them since I've been told that their compensation plans get changed mid year. Quotas are un-achievable which is why they keep quitting.
    We were a WAN Optimization company but then management decided to jump on the SD-WAN bandwagon, so the company was rebranded.
    Don't come to work here unless you are desperate and have zero options. If you do have options, run away from this place as fast as you can.

    Advice to Management

    Advice? Management never takes any feedback or input from the worker bees because they seem to think they have ALL of the answers.
    Advice to the board of directors and investors is to come into the office, and talk to the worker bees to find out what is REALLY going on.

    Pros

    What a difference a year makes! Went from a "visionary" company to a viable competitor in such little time. Recently released really solid innovation which should help propel the company to the next level. Executive team is strong, focused with great execution. Work environment produces daily challenges, often touching new territory resulting in new solutions. Pay is good; market competitive. Solutions Architect Manager is one of the best; understands the business very well, is highly respected by our executives and supports/drives his team to get their best.

    Cons

    Needs stronger product management, more for management of release of new features/solutions, training and market research on feature requests. In some areas it still feels like the company is "winging it" but it's far more organized than a year ago. While base pay is good accelerators are weak and it's hard to really track performance against commission, though that's supposed to be fixed with Xactly (coming soon). Not impressed with the new medical plan but it's adequate.

    Advice to Management

    Don't relax. Keep moving forward. You're doing a great job and we're counting on you all to take the company to the next level.

    I have been working at Aryaka Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I joined Aryaka almost 6 years ago and it was in its infancy at that time. We had about 11 employees worldwide. It still feels like yesterday, thanks to amazing leadership and work culture that we have here at Aryaka, time just flew by. Everyday I feel that I have learned and achieved something new and grew myself as a technocrat as well as a thought leader. A very positive and rewarding experience.

    Cons

    There are always a few area of improvement in any company and Aryaka is no exception. Nothing major. if few minor items are corrected, it will make Aryaka THE place to work. With the new leadership in place, I feel very optimistic about positive changes in that direction.

    I have been working at Aryaka Networks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Aryaka for 1,5 months. I had two other offers, and I decided to join Aryaka, which turned out to be absolutely the right decision. From one side, it enjoys a rapid growth and high customer satisfaction rates. This results in a positive, results-oriented culture. The company is growing rapidly and is adding top new talent. From the other side, there is a lot of camaraderie among employees and executives. Aryaka offers a friendly and positive work environment and fantastic benefits! This is one of the best companies I have worked in.

    Cons

    There were some issues in the past with the management, resulting in some unhappy employees, who rightfully were frustrated with their experience. This has completely changed with the new executive team comprised from Silicon Valley industry veterans that have been successful with building positive and successful teams and companies. Innovation, growth, customer satisfaction, and employee satisfaction are 4 top priorities coming from the very top of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on this course, and keep on innovating!
