    Pros

    -Amazing people
    -All the tools for success are given to you
    -Family-like atmosphere
    -Fully stocked kitchens
    -Catered lunches
    -Monthly happy hours
    -Extensive training program
    -Great pay & benefits

    Honestly, I could go on and on about how amazing Apttus is. When I first went in for my interview, I was a bit skeptical. Start-up? Don't they tend to fail?? I already have great job security, should I really be here? All of these doubts flashed through my head and I am SO HAPPY I ignored them and that I hopped aboard the Apttus Rocket ship.

    Apttus has been profitable, since DAY ONE, so no concerns about failing. They are built on and operate entirely within the Salesfroce1 platform; not to mention, Salesforce is a partner, investor AND customer of Apttus'! You can't get better job security than that!

    This company is 100% about their employees and customers. Everyone wants to see you succeed here and everyone is willing to help you out. Even Kirk, our CEO, who is the busiest man in the world, in all-day meetings, who is in and out of the country, will make the time for you. He encourages you to pop in, if you ever have a question or need anything. If you ever talk to him, you can tell how genuine he is and how much he really cares for you and your contribution to the company.

    There has been a decent amount of growth and the atmosphere has changed a bit and it's for the better. There is so much comradery and a buzz of positive energy throughout the office. It's amazing to be a part of this transition. If you have the opportunity, I would get in the door NOW!

    If you like to work and like to feel appreciated and if you like a company that promotes within.. then Apttus is for you.

    Cons

    I have seen some grumpy posts on here about Apttus or specific aspects of it. No company is perfect and if you are a disgruntled employee, you will find a reason to hate where you work. There is a lot of growth so there is some disconnect at times but if you just roll with the punches and have a positive attitude, you should have zero complaints.

    Honestly there's nothing to complain about. We are growing rapidly, so desk space can be cramped, but nothing of concrete value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the amazing work. Those on the Rocketship are here to make it through the QTC Galaxy.

    Great Benefits, Competitive Salary, Stock Options, Fully Stocked Kitchens, Company Culture. This company is doing great so far and has treated me well.

    Pros

    Apttus is a fun place to work. They provide thorough, comprehensive training to their employees. The office culture is also very cool.

    Long hours can be considered a con by some, but if you're serious about working than it isn't an issue at all.

    Continue to focus on training and development, and don't get away from the current culture of fun and happiness. It breeds happy employees, and generally, happy employees are productive employees.

    Pros

    The time and training that Apttus puts into new employees is incredible. Everyone in the office is willing to help out and the opportunities to expand skill sets and learn are numerous and varied. The product is sound and provides incredible solutions to the customers. Apttus has commuter benefits as well as office perks like lunches and snacks. There's nowhere to go but up at Apttus.

    Cons

    There isn't always a solid plan for day to day challenges like space. Due to growth, not everyone knows where they will be placed after training for entry-level roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the extensive training program is very good, a more robust training staff to handle higher volume of new employees could help. Handling so many people can be challenging.
