I have been working at AppFolio full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great starting pay and benefits
The people and coworkers are amazing. I made quite a few friends working there and the culture is energetic and fun.

Cons

Limited/no advancement/mobility within the company. Pay is limiting and is not comprabable to skill and responsibility increase the longer you stay there.
There is little to no incentives/rewards even if you go above and beyond job requirements/description. As a result, there is an undercurrent of discontent.
Large disconnect between upper management and clients that use the product.
Very fine line between offering concerns/feedback about processes/company and being viewed as negative or "not on board" with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create actual advancement and career opportunities. Employees start working there with excitement and optimistic about establishing a career and building something special. By year 1-2 those emotions are withered if not gone.

    Pros

    Fun company events and trips out to Santa Barbara, CA along with an entertaining and lively sales team.

    Cons

    Upper management is largely out of touch with what occurs "in practice" regarding how the product is actually bought and sold by property management companies. Since the departure of the two main sales leaders/managers, it's become nothing but a boiler room and morale has decreased to the point that its hard to come to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that appfolio property manager is NOT gotomeeting and that proper care and concern need to be taken with each prospect and buyer. The increasing influence of the past Citrix leadership and strategy is slowing growth and decreasing employee morale & job satisfaction.
