Pros

Clearly the market leader in a growing space. Some of the most technically proficient people I have ever worked with. The technology just works. Expanding into some super-high potential areas with the mobile products. Culture is great… anyone who is saying otherwise probably was a hiring mistake. If you care about being excellent, it’s hard to fail. Lazy people will get weeded out quick.

Cons

The company has struggled to keep up with the increased demand for the products at time. Mostly it seems to be typical growing pains when the product starts to get serious momentum. The company has high standards for hiring so finding the right people takes time and sometimes leaves people with a suddenly increased workload.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay ahead of the growth curve with hiring and be strategic in market focus. The potential for our company is nearly unlimited with the right leadership in place.

    Pros

    Great technology and possible future for the technology.

    Cons

    Great people work there, well... use to work there. AppSense has very high turnover due to the CEO and his executive lackeys. It's a good thing they got rid of him. They treated the sales team as sweatshop with a "Take it or leave it" attitude believing one can always find more slaves. HUGE micro management style by the executives, to the point they are aware and believe in all the false internal rumors. They would use rumors to intimidate and demean workers in front of others.

    The motto "The AppSense Way" is used to motivate people. "The AppSense Way" is a joke that was a lie! No matter how hard one works, only the Chairmen and his Viastorm lackey's see success with promotions and compensation. Stay away from this place!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start a new culture that appreciates it's workforce instead of intimidates.

    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!
