    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Ayasdi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work and friendly people. HR and management tries their best to make people happy. Excellent relationship between teams and plenty of opportunities to contribute (not restricted to current role).

    Cons

    Lack of communication from higher-ups regarding direction of the company. Sometimes, lack of deep technical expertise in engineering and technical leadership leads to decisions that slowly kill the product.

    Advice to Management

    Tie up loose ends in communication and processes. Hold people accountable. Hire top talent.

    "The Board should be accountable too"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Software Engineer 
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ayasdi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Vision is great, stellar math under Professor Gunnar Carlsson, and a huge initial launch that put the company on the map, which was a factor that attracted me to the company.

    Cons

    Very competitive space to hire and retain talent, especially data scientists and engineers, and when people leave, it leaves a big knowledge gap and slows down all engineering efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Despite other posts, Gurjeet has done a decent job as a first-time CEO. The external Board should be more accountable, but given everything going on, they seem to be non-existent.

    Thank you for your feedback. You are absolutely correct; this is a challenging talent market & great departing talent always leaves a gap. While this challenge is being felt everywhere in the tech industry, we recently rolled out a number of programs to increase employee engagement, empowerment & retention. We’ve also ramped-up the publicity around our open door policy & really encourage all employees to come forward with any challenges they face; We’re committed to retaining & developing the worlds best talent!
