    I have been working at App Annie full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I get to work on cool stuff. Pretty awesome to be in the app space. Having been in tech for some time, mobile is the future. This company is doing quite well. In the business sense, we are doing phenomenal. Bringing well-qualified people on board.

    Good size company. Amazingly nimble for what we are trying to achieve

    Cons

    Accessibility of management team

    More training when we first start off!

    There are some members of the team who exude negativity...FIX THIS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    401k..be more comprehensive with benefits. They are pretty average. Be aware that we are being recruited by other companies!

    Be more transparent and approachable. There is a clique-like environment and this can be attributed directly to how the management team can be... It starts from the top.

    Pros

    Initially exciting based on market potential and the fact that they're backed by Sequoia Capital. Good, smart employees make it livable.

    Cons

    People in various departments getting fired after just 6 months of employment. Publicly not concerned with a revolving door of employees. A lot of senior leadership has no management experience, it shows. If you polled the employees of this company, over 80% would say it sucks. Not because of long hours or hard work required. More because of the lack of basic understanding of how human beings get inspired, learn, engage and perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cat's out of the bag, good luck.

    Pros

    Great team, strong management, good salary, and good benefits.

    Cons

    The roles/responsibilities are not always clearly laid out
    401k would be nice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into implementing a more formal team structure, but other than that you're doing great.

    Pros

    Everyone here is excited about the undeniable growth of the company--it pushes everyone to work harder and smarter. There are a lot of exciting projects to work on, and the teams are small enough that you can really see your own work's effect. It is at a great stage where you still know everyone in the office, but you get the perks of being with a company that has the capital to invest in its employees. The overall atmosphere of this office is focused, hard-working, yet still fun. The management team makes an active effort to be transparent. That culture of transparency is evident throughout the entire company, and there are no politics.

    Cons

    As it is a company that is growing very rapidly, there is a lot of work to be done, and some of the processes on how to achieve them are still being ironed out. Luckily, the company is aware of this and seems to be working to develop standardized processes to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the transparency--it's much appreciated.

    Pros

    I've always been passionate about the work I do and it's rare to find individuals in my work environment who share that same passion and work ethic. At App Annie there are an amazing group of professionals who not only share that same passion in their respective roles but also value contributions and opinions of myself and my team.

    Cons

    We're growing up. There are times you look back at any youthful stage with a sense of nostalgia and miss the whims of startup life. The benefit is that we're moving forward, evolving and succeeding.

    Pros

    Great brunch of people who are passionate about the mobile space. This is a company with a lot of growth potential, people here are very knowledgable about the space, and there's a great culture in place.

    Cons

    There needs to be more mentorship, training, and feedback in place for employees at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication needed from C-level to help align company's goal and objective, since there's a large global team. Also 360 feedback for everyone in the company to ensure we're all at our best.

    Pros

    Flat hierarchy, collaborative environment, fast pace, rate of learning, great team environment. Benefits, culture, access to top management. Hard working and smart people push you to achieve more.

    Cons

    teams are spread so thin and tasked with so much that sometimes communication breaks down and scrambles occur.
    Not so much in the way of training, but all startups throw you into the frying pan. Definitely not for the people looking for a cushy 9-5.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maintain the culture
    define organizational responsibilities
    hire adequate resources for the challenging roadmap

    Pros

    They really know what they are doing when hiring. They took the time to really get to know me and make sure that it would be a good match and not just hire because they need people.
    The people there are al so much fun and love what they do which only makes it easier to take the offer to work for App Annie.

    Cons

    I dont think this is a con but the case study give is difficult, which is actually a pro from them to make sure that the people they are looking to hire are actually qualified for the job.
