Pros

Well worth the commute to Union City - Great people, product and exciting business plan. Casual work environment. Ariat is growing so lots of opportunity for everyone - Unlike bigger companies, it is easy to get things done, new ideas are welcome and its not political. They are working on increasing formal development for all employees and committed to being a great place to work.

Cons

Ariat is growing fast so some things that you might be used to in a larger, older company are in development. Restaurants are mainly limited to chains but if you do a little homework, you can find awesome Vietnamese, Indian and Mexican food.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Company is founded on concrete ideals
    - Industry pioneer -- Ariat has a history of breaking new ground in the equestrian market
    - Clean, safe office location
    - General sense of integrity

    Cons

    - Not all managers know how to manage humans
    - Commute is generally across the bridge
    - Middle management can be incompetent at times

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Review sites like these are generally self-selective in nature -- one only writes a review if they are either extremely satisfied or dissatisfied (and usually it's the latter). Keep the workplace "human" -- there's a valuable sense of compassion at Ariat that can be taken for granted.
