I have been working at AvePoint full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Since I've started working at AvePoint, I've had the opportunity to meet amazing people, have my work recognized, and collaborate with almost every department within the company. As an Account Executive, you get the chance to work with a variety of entities, from Fortune 500 companies to local start-ups. The days are rarely tedious, and the culture here is young and welcoming. We're given an entire fridge of free beverages, free coffee (which is essential), big screens TVs galore, a solid benefits package, and an awesome ping pong room. Company events are often (bowling, paintball, happy hours), and you're also given the chance to attend marketing events all around the country (and eventually around the world). Not to mention that the location itself is beautiful as the building is right on the waterside and a clear view of Manhattan is just outside the windows. Great places to eat here in Jersey City too (ask around the office about the Halal truck - you wont be disappointed). The products here, though a bit difficult to understand in the beginning (especially if you dont have a IT/computer background), are pretty easy to sell and are actually fun to present once you start getting a better grasp on the tools. And because almost all kinds of organizations have immediate technological needs at this point, AvePoint is literally at the tip of skyrocketing in terms of business and revenue. In short, opportunity is abundant here, and I'm glad to be a part of it, especially considering that this was my first (real) job out of college.

Cons

Starting salary is a bit lower than expected to be honest, but there is LOTS of room for growth. If you work hard and have an great personality, you can get promoted fairly quickly. The 9-hour shift is also sometimes a bit of a drag (8:30-5:30), but the days often move quickly. Also - commuting can be a pain, especially if you're coming from more than 45 min away. traffic is variable and parking can get a bit expensive ($225/month). Public transportation is your best bet.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work. Team Leads are young and motivated, which really adds to the work environment. Upper management is also very much approachable - please keep it up! The AvePoint culture carries a lot of value for the company

    I have been working at AvePoint full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have been with AvePoint 6+ months, and I must say that I am extremely happy with the support I receive from my management team. I have had great mentors, always there with great feedback.

    I have seen many colleagues give it their all and then some more and move forward and upward within the company. There is great comradery among team members. There is always an accessible source of knowledge through out the company. They make sure to enable open lines of communication among their employees, supporting team effort.

    I have been able to grow a lot within this position, expand on my knowledge and look forward to continuing on this path.

    Cons

    I live on the shore, so it is a bit of a commute but well worth it.
