    Pros

    Great starting pay and benefits
    The people and coworkers are amazing. I made quite a few friends working there and the culture is energetic and fun.

    Cons

    Limited/no advancement/mobility within the company. Pay is limiting and is not comprabable to skill and responsibility increase the longer you stay there.
    There is little to no incentives/rewards even if you go above and beyond job requirements/description. As a result, there is an undercurrent of discontent.
    Large disconnect between upper management and clients that use the product.
    Very fine line between offering concerns/feedback about processes/company and being viewed as negative or "not on board" with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create actual advancement and career opportunities. Employees start working there with excitement and optimistic about establishing a career and building something special. By year 1-2 those emotions are withered if not gone.

    I worked at AppFolio full-time

    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

    The employees are a great bunch, and the culture is an active one. There are lots of sports teams to play on, and monthly company meetings are a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is extremely limited, favoritism runs rampant. The pay... It's bad.

    People and culture are great, but pay is on the short end.

    I have been working at AppFolio full-time

    Pros

    Company, products, management, culture, and people are great. The people are some of the best I have worked with. The productivity and brain power of their employees is amazing. What the company lacks in pay, it tries to make up for in other ways with fun events, free shirts, feeding you at times and similar such things, which is great but those are the things you need to do if you want to attract and retain great talent.

    Cons

    Much like a lot of tech companies in the Santa Barbara area, they like to under pay employees. Right now, no bonus program. Raises are anemic. Company holidays are slim. Paid Time Off is average to start, increases to it are non-existant until many years later. The number of stock options they grant are okay. Upward mobility is slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are top-notch. To keep top-notch, high performing employees you need to not only do all the things you are doing well but you also need to pay them a fair wage representative of, performance, the cost of living in the area and the industry. AppFolio is great but there is an under-swell of discontent with pay.
