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

    Pros

    Ascentis is a perfect mix of established business and startup worlds. There is new energy and total commitment to the Agile way of life. We are building on the foundations laid over the last 20+ years but building for the future.

    Not afraid to push the boundaries of technology and breaking the mould of traditional enterprise applications.

    Collaborative environment where everyone's contributions are encouraged and appreciated. Complete transparency of business decisions and company affairs

    Cons

    commute in the SF Bay Area could be an issue if you live in the East or South Bay but a flexible work environment helps mitigate that.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the focus on Innovation in product and services.

    I worked at Ascentis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Open environment to ask questions among your peers in any department, great group of people from all walks of life, nice work/life balance, be able to talk and work with even executive-level staff is also a plus

    Cons

    Pretty informal training so you will have to explore sometimes to find answers, going through stable growth and wants to promote from within, just seems a bit difficult to do from the budget side.

    Advice to Management

    Develop plans to keep people motivated so once those opportunities to promote come up, you can quickly do so.Avoid promising potential change down the road as it may not happen in that timeframe

    The team environment is great! Our ideas are taken seriously and acted upon. The leadership team does everything they can to help us succeed. Our development team creates great stuff. I feel like I am working at a start up that has the reputation of a 30 year old company. This company is going places fast!

    Cons

    Our resources for sales activities are strained. It can be difficult to get immediate help when we need it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. We all feel like we are a part of something special. You have created a great work environment and are hiring great people.
