    Pros

    + Clear strategy to grow the business and strengthen R&D
    + Excellent focus on customers. Especially for an enterprise company.

    Cons

    + It can get fairly political at times as the company continues to grow.

    Advice to Management

    + Hiring should focus more on organic growth from employees.
    + As the company is growing it needs to adapt to growing internal politics.

    Pros

    I've found AppDynamics to be filled with smart, outgoing people who are passionate about the company and what they do. Everyone is excited about the space we serve and the value that we bring to our customers on a daily basis.

    Cons

    None that I've experienced so far. Each of the areas that I would use to rate a company as an employee have been great (leadership, value provided, outlook, people...).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    The recruiting team was wonderful from Day 1. I had an informative and thorough interview process and great experience meeting people and learning about the company. If you are looking for the Best Company in town, with perks and people who will make you never want to leave.... then you have arrived!

    Cons

    Expanding rapidly - Only a Con because it's hard to meet all the great new co-workers around you.

    Pros

    I've been at this company for a sort time and sure there has been some changes that did not agree with people. That is expected. I came in after some of the typical start-up to grown up company change I believe. In my short time here, I have worked with many different teams to get the company ready for the big league. I have yet to find anyone that is not there to help one another out and get things done. Support from the top down seems very strong - I know I can count on my manager to provide the proper guidance as well as let me do my job that I was hired to do. I've been at a few startups and this one by far is the most unified in their objectives and from the top down supportive of that. C-level management down support means so much and it shows.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change going on, new systems, people, and shift in culture. All the natural part of change - this change is on the correct path. As expected, not everyone is able to cope with rapid change or the disorder before any company can bring order. Thus, this con is really not a con but could be for people that need well defined structure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, make sure you continue to reach out to everyone and let us know the plans of the company. Open and truthful communication will go a very long way. Don't lose sight of that. Thank you for your support.

    Pros

    Fast paced, high growth organization that has, and is, attracting high caliber talent. Extreme focus on customer success and being easy to do business with!

    Cons

    Not a lot of negative to share. Most items would be a result of growing fast while adjusting processes along the way. Plenty of room to influence direction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on innovation and making the solutions Rock Solid...which is expected by the enterprise customer

    Pros

    -Pretty good products.
    -Bugs get fixed quickly.
    -People are pretty smart, nice and motivated to build great products.

    Cons

    -Lots of recent hiring makes it start to feel like a big, impersonal company.
    -Hire more engineers and fewer sales reps.
    -Rapid product expansion without the required attention paid to ease of use or holistic cohesion. I fear that we're going to have a bunch of mediocre products that cover a broad space.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the company's quick growth lead us down a path toward those other big companies.

    Pros

    Great company growth. Product and sales driven company. There are politics, but expected with the current size and growth. Senior management is excellent and insightful.

    Cons

    Company can be somewhat reactive versus proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Retain the culture, make necessary changes
