    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to vet out folks who can't handle the demands and risks of a startup. Judging by some of the reviews on this site, there are a few people who don't understand how a startup works. Jeff and e-staff report to a board who speak on behalf of investors.(who have been very, very generous to AppC) These investors are expecting handsome returns on their investment, as they should because we are in a very hot space with a very valuable, attractive offering.

    When AppC doesn't meet these very high expectations, Jeff and e-staff must make pivots. If you are not comfortable with change and risk, you probably don't belong at AppC, or any startup for that matter!

    Pros

    Smart and friendly co-workers, opportunity to work for a high visibility company in the mobile space. Impressive technology vision draws in big players.

    Cons

    Appcelerator is a meat grinder - there is constant hiring & firing. This takes a substantial toll on internal resources to train new employees and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent. When someone quits or is fired, acknowledge it to your group directly. If you don't, people will suspect the worst.

    Doesn't Recommend
