    Cons

    Very unorganized training style. Throw you on new things without proper training. There is not a lot of structure with in this depart or growth. Management likes to sweet things under the rug so head management of the department doesn't find out.

    Continue R&D projects in order to maintain the company's competitive advantage in the process industries.

    Pros

    Great company to be a part of if you are the type of person who is diligent and ultimately cares about the company’s mission. I have been with AspenTech for several years, I have had no lack of opportunity to advance my career and am thankful for those experiences, as they would be tough to find elsewhere!

    AspenTech is a smart company and has been around 35+ years. We are the market leader in process/asset optimization and are financially savvy – sometimes that means expenses are tight, but we are a stable company, this means no layoffs.

    We are entering a new phase of our life cycle as we plan to grow our revenue from $500 million to $1 billion. It is an exciting time to be part of our journey! We recently hired a new CHRO and COO to help achieve this goal.

    Our CEO has acknowledged the importance of culture in influencing our growth which is reassuring. The company has come a long way, I am excited to see what’s in store in the next 5 years.

    Pay is good, benefits are great. This past year, our CEO granted stock to the general employee population due to tax savings - this is almost unheard of in the industry.

    Cons

    AspenTech is not for everyone – if you are excited by the chance to be part of something great and willing to work hard, you will be successful and rewarded.
