    I have been working at Appriss full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's fun to work at Appriss - the people here are fantastic! This company has a purpose and we're creating better communities every day we go to work! I never have to muster up the energy to come to work and I'm working with really smart people! The benefits package is unbeatable these days; Appriss really cares about their employees and their health and financial well-being!

    Cons

    We are working on formalized processes, communication across departments, hitting target launch dates and a few other things but nothing you wouldn't see at any other company - - smaller or larger than Appriss.

    I have been working at Appriss full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance, flexibility in work hours, supported by manager, great camaraderie with co-workers, meaningful work with freedom to get the job done, impressive benefits package, company continues to grow amidst the recent/current economy.

    Cons

    If not in a technical position, limited availability for movement into higher positions. Company continues to grow so also comes lots of change. This in itself is NOT a con; however, those employees within the company that do not like change or are resistent to it tend to be an obstacle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be open to interacting with the all levels of employees. This makes the feel of the company "small" while continuing to grow.

    I have been working at Appriss full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    work-life balance is a great aspect of the company that is accomplished through ROWE. On the side of innovation with keeping communities safe and informed through our notification software.

    Cons

    As in every growing business the challenge of breaking out of "the way we used to do it" and adjusting to the new ways of conducting business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employees in the know about what is is going on company wide, instead of hearing it from the rumor mill.

    I have been working at Appriss full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, competent coworkers
    Driven, inspiring leadership and company message
    Flexible work environment, time off, etc
    Plenty of incentives for performance and even health (bonuses based on health maintenance)
    Everyone matters. I was in meetings with VP's and even the CEO the first week surrounded by people that immediately respected and listened to my voice

    Cons

    Almost a little too flexible of a work environment if you aren't careful
    Nothing else, really

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. I love working here.

    I have been working at Appriss full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Culture
    -Benefits (free Healthcare and flexibility to work from home!)
    -Transparency within all levels of the org.
    -Challenging work
    -Meaningful contribution to society
    -Good Compensation

    Cons

    The onboarding process has been a bit intimidating. The sheer number of internal systems that you have to be able to navigate is overwhelming- let alone the intricacies of each client. It takes a long time (from what I have heard) to overcome the learning curve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reward your employees and invest more in our resources. The workload across the organization seems to be at capacity.

    We are currently reviewing the opportunity to add a gym to the Linn Station location in 2014. We have an on-site clinic that employees and their dependents can access free of charge..

    I have been working at Appriss

    Pros

    Appriss truly cares about its employees and is proud of the work we do to assist victims and law enforcement. The culture is relaxed and comfortable, and there is an open-door policy with senior management. The work, given its nature, can be stressful, but there is a predominant feeling of being supported by the team around you, and that helps a lot. I don't think I will ever work anywhere else.

    Cons

    The company is growing quite fast, which is a challenge as far as getting adequate training for new folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus a bit more on in-depth training.
