Positive Outlook

I worked at AESC full-time

Pros

Great Exposure, Great learning experience, exceptional work atmosphere. I think there should be a special mention to the culture in the organization, you end up feeling like you are working in a family environment rather than an office.

Cons

Very Challenging nature of work, constant pressure. The nature of the work keeps evolving/changing and that can be unsettling at time. Also since the company is very young, i feel its trying to do too much, too soon and hence there is a constant work pressure on the employees.

Advice to Management

Have more people in the middle management role for smoother distribution of work and organizational functioning.

    I worked at AESC full-time

    Pros

    The organization bets on young inexperienced people by investing time in training and grooming... You are given responsibility based on your aptitude caliber and ambition rather than years of experience... Which is very unique and something which is not common in other places (now I know) 😀

    Cons

    Not many policies in place, a lot of decisions are still discretionary to the founder's view on things... Also it's a one man show as all of the business generation and even execution is managed by the founder

    Advice to Management

    Hire more senior people in business development roles and build more systems and processes

    I worked at AESC (More than a year)

    Pros

    * - Great great great culture, no one who has worked here could fault anything with the kind of culture which exists there, i still miss that dearly
    * - Freedom to learn and encouragement to pick different skills ... Now experiencing working some other organizations, i can say that this is a rare opportunity
    * - People centric, always accommodating personal situations of their employees. Makes you believe that the relationship with the firm is non-transactional

    Cons

    * - Disparity, need to benchmark compensation, roles & responsibilities across all levels. People with same experience could be playing drastically different role in the firm, not productive in a long run
    * - Multiple channels of feedback, need to streamline the feedback giving process as the current one could leave you confused
    * - Compensation level, if you want to compete with the best, you have to benchmark the compensation against the best in the market

    Advice to Management

    You are a visionary, and the problem with that is that some people will get you and some people will not :-)
    Don't worry about the clutter and continue driving the organization with you vision and you passion, no doubts in my mind that Athena will be a name to reckon with in near future.
