    I have been working at AppNeta full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big picture? AppNeta is one of the few places I've worked where I've seen people promoted as fast as they're capable of, and in many cases, faster. In many cases, they rise to the challenge. This doesn't even happen in 5-person startups.

    The market is good, the products are good, the customer base is immense, there's real revenue, and management care about making it a good place to work. If you've followed AppNeta, the biggest change of late is that the leadership team is finally behaving as if they can be successful, instead of trying to fend off being unsuccessful. It's refreshing.

    Cons

    AppNeta is a 10-year old startup. It has pivoted several times, while remaining mostly in the same global market, which means there's a lot of baggage. Employee culture, tribal wisdom, best practices: these have been built under a bunch of different, frequently unsuccessful leaders and strategies.

    It's much better, but every small company has it's struggles. AppNeta doesn't have the new-company gloss, and it's still paying for the sins of its past (see: many other reviews here).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think that changing CEOs will fix everything. It's a huge start, but the AppNeta of 5 years ago is probably the biggest competitor and threat to the AppNeta of today. Especially culturally.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AppNeta.

    Interview Details

    I applied after finding out about the company through LinkedIn. Within the week I had a phone interview. Following that, I had an interview at AppNeta with five different members of AppNeta. Everyone was friendly, energetic, and humorous. I went from being slightly interested in the company (after trudging through so many previous applications, interviews, etc) to becoming excited to learn more about the business. Their office is slightly strange, with no front-desk or signage to direct an unwitting person to the interviewer. However, an employee was present to help me.
