I have been working at AppDynamics for less than a year

Awesome working environment, brilliant people to work with, and the best leadership I can ever imagine. Even during this difficult time, the team managed to provide an inviting, uplifting, growing... environment and helps me learn so much! I would totally recommend this intern experience!
