I have been working at AppFolio full-time (more than a year)Pros
I like the people I work with. Good work/life balance. People are mostly nice. They've been able to hire smart and good natured people. They want to continue hiring smart and good natured people. Snacks. Occasional breakfast and lunch. Occasional team outings. Occasional fun events. PTO is alright. Just started 401k matching.
Good development processes. High quality employees, making great impact to the company.
If you're just starting your career, it's a great place.
If you're just leaving a completely crappy employer, this is a great place.Cons
Environment is for extroverts, introverts beware.
They are hiring fast and cramming people in. Zero personal space. Lot's of noise. Office temperature is Cold then Hot. Not very conducive for creative people or focused time.
Long waits for the disgusting bathroom are common.
They hire a lot of people fresh out of college, so if you have any experience be prepared to be pushed to mentor. They should provide some incentive for it.
Couple times a year, employees are pressured into delivering a work related project in 24 hrs, in exchange for food, beer and shirts/sweaters.
The pay and benefits are mediocre, compared to the quality, quantity, responsibility and impact of work.
Raises are on the weak side. No profit sharing at this time. Number of Options granted at a time is now low and doesn't off set the low end of pay.
Seems like the company is deliberately leveraging work relationships and atmosphere in order to pay on the lower end.Doesn't RecommendNeutral Outlook
