Pros

The company is the clear leader in the user virtualization space. Opportunities to work with cutting edge technologies and challenging tasks abound.

Cons

With Wall Street wanting this company to be the next big IPO, the company has lost its focus technically. To make the company appealing to potential buyers of the stock once it goes public, the NY banks are forcing the company to go in all kinds of different directions so that the company has multiple streams of revenue on the balance sheet. For the employees this is creating chaos as people try as hard as they can to adapt to quick and massive change that seems to occur weekly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus!

    Pros

    The company has hired some really great employees in the field and technical positions and they are really hard workers. Great People to know as career contacts!

    Cons

    Pressure is put on employees located in the corporate office, as they are being watch constantly by upper management. In the field selling you are put on probation in order to excel - even when you land a large deal! Also, it is the judgement of upper management on how (if) you will get paid commission (stated in contract). Not a good company to partner, upper management feels it is an honor for a company (large or small) to be accepted as a partner or alliance member of AppSense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more, instead of discounting them - really honor what they tell you. Please make employees feel more than that they are "just lucky to have a job"

    Pros

    There are so many super talented people here, who are passionate about what they do, whether it's developing software, selling or working in the support functions. AppSense is a hard working company! There have been some changes over the last 18 months and things are certainly headed in the right direction to be even more successful. The benefits are excellent -(which we need to remind ourselves of more often) and management are supportive and open to new ways to keep staff motivated and focused. The Exec team are approachable and know most people by name. I've worked in a mix of organisations where this wasn't the case, so this is a refreshing change. All in all, this is a great place to work :)

    Cons

    Whilst exciting, the pace of change is sometimes a challenge. We work hard, but do reap the rewards.
