    Current Employee - Tech in Louisville, KY

    I have been working at Appriss full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Pay and benefits are great
    -Lots of freedom and collaboration with boss when planning long term projects
    -Higher ups value input
    -Show appreciation for employees by sometimes bringing in catered food, gift cards, even a money blowing machine at the Christmas party
    -Lots of internal promotion, bosses don't seem to have any problem with interdepartmental moves either, no sour grapes or anything like that they just seem to want to help you succeed
    -A meritocratic feel

    Cons

    The IT structure is convoluted. Even just the naming structure of the many custom services and servers up and running are opaque, confusing, and nonstandardized. On at least a few occasions I recall getting admonished by superiors (not my boss though, Bob P. was a superb boss.) for confusions that only arose because of the byzantine naming conventions getting confused with the colloquial terms used internally to describe services and servers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's the long term future of the company? I see the growth in the many different services that you're branching out to but what's Appriss's exclusive value when compared to other data aggregate companies? My concern is that Google and Amazon could move into many if not all of the spaces currently occupied by Appriss in the coming decade or sooner.

    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.

    Current Employee - Client Relationship Manager in Louisville, KY

    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 (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 (less than an 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.
