Pros

Early stage, hyper-growth company that will reward you for your hard work. We all believe this company is a springboard for our careers.

Cons

Still a maturing company that might "shoot from the hip."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing. We'll get there together.

    The next great software company, no. Probably the next BMC:

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

    Pros

    -On par with typical SaaS earnings
    -Great place to learn how to cold call

    Cons

    -Poor/Non-Existent people management
    -Exlusively KPI driven (KPIs developed by mature businesses from a different era)
    -Not at all a Silicon Valley culture. Basically like working for BMC (a very old, very un-silicon valley software company)
    -Culture of intimidation from the Veep downwards
    -Severe cronyism as everyone followed Veep from BMC
    -Long work hours
    -No social balance. You are there to make calls, bring in deals and they pay you. Any kind of enjoyment/banter is looked as taking your eye off the ball
    -Culture is viewed as people who work excessively hard and put AppD above all else. Consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Won't be taken on board as they already know better than anyone else in the industry

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Fast paced growth, hungry and successful in their own way.
    Great technical team
    Typical start up

    Cons

    Fast becoming old boys club since 2013, you are either in or out
    Still learning to sell into enterprises
    Spoiled by initial success, make sure you do not burn out
    Have not mastered talent management, looking for stellar short term performances only

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The world is not flat, one strategy does not work all the time...
