      Pros

      Great people throughout the organisation, good benefits package.

      Cons

      Management lead through dictation with some believing they are untouchable. Do not attempt to think outside of the box, you will be shut down. Do not join if you are expecting career growth. If you wish to feel valued, do not join.

      Technical Team has promising future, sales is not.

      Pros

      I don't wish to reveal if I am still with the company or not. I am forced to put something down. HYSYS, Plus and the rest of the AspenTech suite is the best in the business. The software is very intensive (we have books and articles over hundreds of pages), but you will learn a great deal to boost your career. The whole technical team is quick to support and help. We have a close network who will always help out. Recently people have been recognised for promotion and progression. Previously we were able to fly and travel, since Corona this has changed, but when things cooldown you will get to travel to some very nice places if you have a second language. The new management for the CST who came in is very capable in their role has built strong communication in the team.

      Cons

      Promotion and progression is something overlooked for the technical team. We've had many talented people leave all because they are overlooked a promotion to a senior position. It's a very tiring role. Expect to work long hours and work outside of work hours. Some have left because of this and others are looking. We were without a manager for several months and expected to take up the workload. and manage each other. Having spoken with others the common feeling you'll get is underappreciated. AspenTech don't care. The sales teams you work with can be difficult. Either giving short notice or missing information. Communication between the teams has improved, but you will feel overworked. I do not work in sales, but I have worked closely with both the smb team and can share what I have been told from demos, technical calls and from people who had lunch with us. There is a high expectation without any support or guidance, often you will be told to do something without reasoning or be told to do something completely different. The team shared they have issues with management around dishonesty, favoritism, working on personal projects and aggressive and negative environment. There was also an instance of someone who was let go on the day and was made to leave without saying goodbye or warning. Most of the team are frustrated and feel directionless from the lack of support. Fearing for their jobs.
