Even "the best company" is an understatement

Athena is definitely the best company I've been with and I honestly don't see myself being with any other companies apart from Athena. Even without the great compensation and benefits that Athena offers, as long as the culture of being "people-centered" remains, I would definitely still choose to grow old with Athena. This is because I always believe in the saying that "The more you appreciate your employees, the more they can achieve from what's initially expected from them." It's great to have a company like Athena because going to work simply feels like having fun at the same time continuously learning to upskill myself. Most of all, I get to do a meaningful job in fulfilling other people' s dreams to be part of Athena.

Pros

People-centered with great culture.

Cons

None

Grateful to be part of this organization!

I am grateful for an organization that really knows how to take care of its people. It is a fairly new organization but it is very aggressive in terms of benefits, compensation etc.

I believe that Athena is a great company.

I have always wanted to work at home. Because of the pandemic and considering that I'm a part of the high-risk population. I'm thankful that I found Athena. We're going to have our training soon. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

Pros

salary, Hmo, pet assistance, and work from home set up.

No Job security

There are no regularization since we are just contractors only. Meaning to say, they can terminate you anytime and DOLE can't help you since they don't have an entity in the Philippines.

Pros

Salary

Cons

No Job security

Amazing company culture!

Athena is one of the best companies that not just offers a competitive salary but also promotes a healthy work and life balance. The whole Athena community is composed of well-rounded and fun to work with individuals.

Fun, Supportive environment. Responsive management and very receptive to feedback.

Exam and interview were 10/10 difficult but worth it. Training was challenging but trainers were supportive. A culture where everyone is willing to help and brainstorm with you. Everyone is open to new learning regardless of tenure and position. The management takes your input into consideration and sends you updates on it what they're doing about it. Work is fulfilling and diverse.The company is not client-centered. They want you and the client to have work-life balance and advice you to delegate, postpone, or decline tasks beyond your bandwidth.

Pros

Great support and management, Weekly Salary is great and extra hours are paid.

Cons

Not for people who are not fans of MAC, or who are looking for a temporary gig, Tasks can be challenging

Athena sees raw potential

Great salary, supportive community, 100% remote EA work in the Philippines. I got hired even though I didn't have EA experience. They have paid high touch training as well! Government benefits are not yet covered but Athena is working around it.

Nurtures and invests in their employees.

One of the things that made me fall in love with Athena is you feel that you are cared for—from training, salary increase, equipments, benefits, learning resources, workshops and etc you are covered. They take care of you **extremely** good here. I remember I was praised by my client—the whole community celebrated with me because of that 'single' accomplishment. Every single one, boosts you up when you win and helps you when you are in need. Truly a community unlike any other.

Pros

community, resources, quality client

Pros

Compensation, Hmo, and schedule

Cons

No part-time

Work-Life Balance

One of the few companies that I know that give importance to their employees' well-being. They strictly implement no works during the weekends, and they also send care packages every now and then. Their benefits is superb!

The best company to be part of!

Athena is heaven-sent. During a time of crisis and pandemic, the gods blessed us with the people behind Athena. Here are the things I love most about Athena.1. CULTURE - this is what I have been dreaming of for years. I never knew such working environment exist. And when I say culture, this has been the most mature and respectful working environment I have ever worked with. The equality between each employee is everywhere. As an EA, I never felt lesser than anyone. I actually felt very empowered since day 1 of training.2. TRAINING - The training materials and pase is way much better than any training I attended as an employee. Everything is straight forward. Even if most of it is self-learning, all of the details I need is provided. After training, I felt like I am ready to conquer the virtual EA world.3. SUPPORT - Everyone single person in Athena is really more than willing to help! What amazes me is the fact that this is remote work but I never felt alone every single day. Even if we do not see each other in person, everyone feels like a friend already. I do not know how they do it, but I feel like I know everyone in Athena personally. If you are a first time EA, like me, the Athena community will never leave you hanging. Having the Athena community by your side makes you the best EA to your client, like you have been doing the work for years!4. PAY - This is what it means to be paid exactly what you are worth and so much more! Plus the yearly increase is one of the reasons you are motivated to work. When I was in another company, it felt like I am always working more - 

Pros

Equipment is provided. Salary and benefits are competitive. Work culture. Management.
