    I have been working at AppDynamics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Constantly being challenged All the tools needed to do your job are given to you VERY STRONG product Loyal Customers

    Cons

    fiefdom mentality with extremely narrow pool of talent being brought in, namely McAfee, BMC and ex-CA Wily protectionist stance with leadership, not advancement from within... Big company/corporate leadership team out of tune with challenges of small hyper-growth startup...

    Advice to Management

    Recruit outside of BMC, CA, McAfee....there is a lot of talent out there and neither one of these three are making hay in the software space lately (cloud?)

    Pros

    - Challenge: once you're past the gruesomely challenging interview process, you're now considered a part of the family. This company will throw you into the deep end and expect you to sink or swim. You're given the opportunity to actually show your true strengths without bureaucratic red-tape holding you back. There never has been a day where I felt I wasn't being challenged to my fullest potential. - IQ: the collective intelligence and experience of this company is nothing to take lightly. There is a powerhouse of industry experience, knowledge and IQ. - Culture: this company does care about the employees. Just recently HR held a leaderboard of ideas for employees to suggest the benefits they would like to see. Of the top five, 4 of them were adopted and rolled out within a month. Employee benefits are not lip-service for recruiters to attract new prospects; they actually do take care of their work force. - Food: best breakfasts and catered lunches. Bottomless supply of drinks, coffee, snacks and even meals for those days you want to grab a quick lunch at the office for yourself. - Office: you can sit and work, stand and work, walk and work on the tread-desks, or throw your legs up and lounge in any of the "lounges" that are placed throughout the office. - Massages: this speaks for itself - Highly competitive salaries, stock options. No 401k matching, but you cannot expect that from a pre-IPO company at this stage.

    Cons

    - Working in downtown SF means paying lots of $$ for rent. Luckily the salary helps with that. - No bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
