    Pros

    I rave to my friends all the time about how much I love to work here. They all said it was just a honeymoon period, but it has been over a year now and I still love it! Appfolio stresses personal development and a healthy happy work environment. I would love to work here forever, but I know that if I do move on to another job I will have developed immensely from my time here.

    Cons

    Sometimes they run out of my favorite snacks... but who can really complain about free food?

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Ridiculously awesome culture. Family friendly. Intern friendly. Seasoned engineer friendly. Animal friendly. Reasonable benefit coverage and cost, and improving as company grows. Forward thinking engineers and technologists. Products that leave a positive impact on the world. Honest and open management and Product organization. Company is also open and honest about improvement needs. Epic multi-day hack days, camping retreats, good pay, good upward mobility, friendliest coworkers you'll meet anywhere. Aware of things like technical debt but engineers strategize well on this. No micromanagers. Ego-less teams. Collaborative teams. So much fun stuff to do around the office to help people have fun and blow off steam.

    Cons

    I am getting fat with all the free food n stuff. The bacon bourbon s'mores are just out of control.

    Advice to Management

    Take a break once in a while to reflect on and enjoy the awesome company you built and the lives (employees and customers) you've improved in the process. And please continue to grow us without compromising the awesomeness!

    Appfolio has one of the best Cultures. The Culture starts with the people and it is a family. Although we are no longer a start-up it is the biggest smallest company you have ever worked for. Every day people come in with a bright attitude to help our company succeed. I love working at Appfolio.

    Pros

    -Great company culture, people here are as friendly as can be. - Management is awesome, I feel as I am motivated to work hard to help the company succeed. - Even at the intern level, the company makes you feel very involved and invites you to sit in on the company meetings and other learning opportunities for full time employees. - Kitchen is fully stocked with all sorts of goodies, lunch is catered on a weekly basis.

    Cons

    -Have gained weight from all the food at work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Thanks for your feedback - glad that you feel involved and included. And I have to say, this is one of my very favorite cons....maybe we need to add even more lunch time workouts :)

    Pros

    The company is located in one of the best areas California has to offer. My coworkers are wonderful, intelligent people. Each day brings new challenges that keep the job interesting.

    Cons

    There is a housing shortage in the Santa Barbara area. Fortunately traffic isn't nearly as bad as it can be in other California tech cities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote people from within the company, and continue to listen to us employees. Keep up the good work.
