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

Pros

Coworkers were great, CEO is great, customers were fun...never a dull moment with them! Decent benefits. Enjoyed my experience with ASI.

Cons

Pay could've been better, dealing with the reps in cebu(dreadful)!! Wish the upper management would've been more personable, with the exception of the CEO.

Advice to Management

Make sure your management team is leaders! Not all are, and people need someone that leads by example.

    Pros

    The tasks that you work on day to day will change frequently. The company is growing which is exciting. It lends itself well to those who are starting out trying to get their foot in the door. There are always new advancement opportunities as the company continues to boom.

    Cons

    Because of the rapid growth, sometimes there are unexpected changes in tasks which can be stressful. One day you have quite a bit more work to do than the last. This comes in phases, and is just to accommodate a transition for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees suggestions about areas of growth for the company.
