Current Employee - Engineering Manager in New York, NY
Current Employee - Engineering Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at AppNexus full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Very challenging problems (scale, rapid development, complex problem domain)
Some of the best engineers and execs I every encountered
Rapid growth
Lots of opportunities for growth
Complete transparency about strategy
More emphasis on software engineering practices is very timely.
Recent strategic planning process was grueling but amazingly inclusive. I have never witness exec team involve so many line people in strategic planning.

Cons

Tight deadline
Sometimes project definitions are not sufficiently precise

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to have fewer meetings
Company is growing very rapidly and responding to changing markets. Execs try very hard to keep everyone in the loop but rank-and-file would benefit from more details and more QA.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO
