    I worked at AppDynamics full-time

    Pros

    There are great perks such as food, chair massage and a lot of happy hours. It's also an exciting atmosphere to be part of a company doing so well.

    Cons

    Rude, entitled people, unprofessional management/HR & upward movement is a joke. Very wasteful use of money. I honestly don't know how they are doing so well.

    Pros

    Based on where you fall, life at AppDynamics can range from 'ok' to 'pretty bad'. However, pending the outcome of the lawsuit with CA Wily, the IPO does seem to be a very real possibility. There are some very good engineers here for the product. As someone already noted, the overwhelmingly positive reviews were a propaganda campaign run by the marketing department in early 2013.

    Cons

    Extremely political, competitive and chaotic environment, in most cases without any direction. An ugly culture of self-congratulation and one-upmanship. There are many inexperienced and unqualified employees who are emboldened out of sheer ignorance, hired out of desperation to fill the ranks. Outside of the product itself, there seems to be no coherent strategy whatsoever. The sales and marketing team are a caricature of what you would expect to find.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maturity will help you in the long-run. Stop rewarding bad behavior. Focus on long-term strategy and genuine employee well-being.
