I worked at Appcelerator

Pros

These are some of the best engineers I've ever worked with in mobile development. If I was starting my own company these are the people I'd contact first because they are the the top-notch best-of-breed engineers. I'm not going to mention any names but you know who I am talking about here.

Cons

It's hard because a lot of the key employees are located remotely. But this is what you have to do to hire good people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more of your friends because these are the only people you can trust

    I have been working at Appcelerator full-time

    Pros

    The mobile space is growing exponentially, and Appcelerator boasts one of the top products to service this market. Exciting times ahead!

    Cons

    Can be hectic, with fire drills when your group becomes a focal point, but that tends to be the result of aggressive goal setting, which is an admirable trait.

    I worked at Appcelerator full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Driven to do our best work
    Some of the kindest folks you'll meet
    Well-intentioned management
    Cutting-edge technology
    Convenient location
    Kitchen is awesome
    Support staff always tries to brighten your day :)

    Cons

    Employees have tended to feel undervalued--either by lack of recognition or lack of coaching.
    It really is run top-down by CEO, which can lead to a sense of lack of autonomy for certain departments.
    There exists a sense of rule by fear due to lack of communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for being so passionate; I learned a great deal.
    Please learn to delegate and respect those folks' decisions-it's why you hired them, right?
    Don't forget your developer community; they are your evangelists and future!
    Celebrate for wins and encourage collaboration between departments.
    Stay passionate! I'm rooting for you all!!
