I worked at Aspera full-time

Pros

Amazing technology, talented people, flexible schedules, free food and drinks. Aspera's technology is top-notch and there are many talented people that contribute to making it a success. The founders are brilliant. Schedules are flexible and the refrigerators are stocked.

Cons

Although schedules are flexible, the people praised for doing the best work are the ones that stay the longest hours. Senior Management works until 2 or 3 am every day and everything is "urgent." There are many blow-ups in the office. Lots of talking behind-the-back.

Advice to Management

Think about what you are going to say before you say it and keep it professional. Plan better so everything isn't so frantic.

    I have been working at Aspera full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch
    Flexible hours
    Great location
    Growing company
    Good benefits, park nearby
    Financially stable
    Good product, meaningful work to do

    Cons

    Office atmosphere feels a little drab at times, with not much decor (but you could always deck out your desk with fun stuff though)
    People here are kind of old

    Advice to Management

    I think overall the company is doing pretty well. I wouldn't complain about anything or say that we're doing anything wrong.

    However, I think that if we want to become a great company, things are going to have to change to take things to the next level. That's often going to involve revising products, improving practices, and a lot of assessment of what's good and bad for the company.
