    Pros

    - Great vision of transformation - Great engineering team - New team members seem to have refreshed the company

    Cons

    - It seems the company is positioning itself for growth in Asia and India rather than USA and Europe - Unrealistic sales goals, although they have been revised for the better with new leadership (for now)

    I have been working at Aryaka Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - My boss, the VP of SEs, is a great guy to work for... very professional, proactive and supportive, but not a micro-manager. - My technical sales career spans decades and technologies, and Aryaka has been, *BY FAR*, the easiest product to sell! Great opportunity to make commissions! - Rock solid technology. None of that "sell around the bugs, I mean, undocumented features". - As a pre-sales SE, it is awesome to be able to hand off to a proficient post sales group. Great customer support! - Timing is right. I am a Sr. Solutions Architect in So. Cal and have been with the company for 5 1/2 yrs. In that time I have seen the internal processes evolve to where they are efficient, and external processes like lead gen evolve to the point they are effective. Past the start-up growing pains. - Did I mention that my boss, the VP of SEs, is a great guy to work for... very professional, proactive and supportive, but not a micro-manager.

    Cons

    Marketing message not yet crisp, but getting better. Many prospects come in expecting a different technology. - Channel still needs a lot of education and development. Lead production only - Aryaka sales teams still drive the entire sales process. - Finance can be difficult to work with. Commission payout rules are kludgy. - Lack of maturity by some of the sales leaders is a bit embarrassing; requires managing
