    I worked at AppFolio full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free food, happy hour nights, tee shirts, costumes.

    Cons

    Staff is robotic, processes come before quality, management is below average at best. Company culture is targeted at the very young looking for a first job. Cronyism among top management is rampant. Not for anyone who wants to put quality work before production line quantity. Take a look at their Appfolio "Happy" video on YouTube. It's insane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't know where to begin.

    Pros

    It tries to keep every one happy by snacks and t-shirts.

    Cons

    Old technologies, not good for personal development. Slow growth. It took 7 years to be barly profitable. Poor health insurance, no 401k, no bonus. Workplace politics. Talented engineers are not really promoted to important postions. The managers are not good at techniques and do not really pay attention to the growth of the teams. But they are really good at keep their postions in the company.

    Pros

    Fun company events and trips out to Santa Barbara, CA along with an entertaining and lively sales team.

    Cons

    Upper management is largely out of touch with what occurs "in practice" regarding how the product is actually bought and sold by property management companies. Since the departure of the two main sales leaders/managers, it's become nothing but a boiler room and morale has decreased to the point that its hard to come to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that appfolio property manager is NOT gotomeeting and that proper care and concern need to be taken with each prospect and buyer. The increasing influence of the past Citrix leadership and strategy is slowing growth and decreasing employee morale & job satisfaction.

    Pros

    lots of autonomy and awesome co workers

    Cons

    they claim transparency but communicate very little to those looking for growth opportunities within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't lose focus of challenging employees at all levels of the company and ensuring they feel rewarded for their dedication and hard work
