Does AspenTech offer dental insurance?

Pros

Niche market, and market leaders Benefits - Health and Dental

Cons

-If they can find a way of screwing your compensation, they will do it. It is a not how can we encourage and promote, it is how can we reduce and discourage. Claw backs abundant, many small T's &C's in your contract. -Promotions can be given alongside more responsibility but HR can use terms such as it is a lateral move, so you don't get anything. -CEO is a control freak, will remove anyone who challenges or offers a different view point. Many approvals have to go through him, I remember the expense of a small freestanding whiteboard had to be approved by him. -Career opportunities are limited, prefer to hire externally than move tenured proven associates 5+ years experience in role up the chain. -Any confidential meetings with HR will go back to the person you have an issue without resolution, you are then treated differently. HR are not neutral they work directly for the leadership and not for employees. -Very old school US based Corporate culture, coupled with old engineers that have taken business reigns. US do not allow other regions to operate differently.

Advice to Management

I doubt much will change with the current CEO in control alongside the many 'Yes Man' VP's that seem to only care for self preservation. My advice would be to look at digital transformation and adopt a culture change in line with modern companies. Care about your workers, especially those working hard and loyal.
