    I have been working at AppSense part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office is relatively small, so everyone gets to know each other. The company encourages group bonding by paying for catered weekly lunches, and occasional trips out to grab food/drinks together. It's a nice change of pace to be working with people you care about. The environment is generally lighthearted, with people taking breaks to play friendly games of ping pong or pool in the break room.

    Cons

    There is often miscommunication between the branches, and the work flow can be frustratingly inefficient. For example, you may be "put in charge" of some task, but really you still need to get permission from your superiors in the UK branch at every step of your project. This can lead to others being frustrated by your slow completion of a task, since it is technically your task to complete -- though in reality, most of the major choices in getting it done in a timely manner are out of your hands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to streamline workflow, if you give people responsibility over a task you must also give them the necessary authority to complete it. Likewise, only add to an employee's responsibility in tandem with adding to their compensation. Having your job duties grow week after week without any change in pay or perks can result in a high turnover rate in employees down the road.

    Great people, great supplies of frozen food, drinks, yogurts, snacks, cereals, coffee, tea, etc. Access to gym, easy commute, company is making money, good potential for the company overall.

    Open environment so sometimes it might get distracted easily. You can hear conversations in the next room. it's a small company so when someone leaves, every one knows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with industrial pay scale yearly and provide survey for how other companies do.

    Pros

    Attitude, Excitement, Team. Those are the 3 words I would use to describe AppSense at this point. The culture has a "can do" attitude that is infectious. There is a tremendous amount of excitement and pride for those who work here because it's known they're a part of something great. Finally - it's a big team and everyone is working together for a common goal, from marketing to sales to engineering to HR.

    Cons

    Too much to do and not enough time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to report at this time.

    Pros

    I absolutely LOVE working here. I started in April of 2013 and I am so happy that I did. The management treats you like family, the benefits are amazing, and the technology and core products are innovative and smart. I am passionate about our solutions and feel very secure in the future of the company. The entire organization has moved in the right direction and more opportunities for growth have opened. The culture is energizing and motivating, which makes me happy to be at work all day. I would recommend that AppSense be voted top companies in 2014.

    I do not have anything negative to say about this company.
