    I have been working at App Annie full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - An executive team that values its employees
    - On the bleeding edge of a (Daas & SaaS) product that provides actionable insights for the mobile app economy that is or will eventually drive decisions that will dictate the success of all companies, big or small, in all vertical industries
    - Passionate & intelligent teammates that are collaborative and helpful
    - Great perks and a convenient downtown SF location
    - A genuine effort and concern for identifying and maintaining our culture and values
    - Overall just a fun place to work where I enjoy coming into the office each and every day

    Cons

    Entering a critical new chapter in the company's existence that requires effective change management for existing employees that struggle to adapt to the evolving characteristics of this fast-growing company that is set to accomplish even greater things, if done correctly.

    Advice to Management

    There is a solid vision for what direction the company needs to head in and App Annie management should continue to evaluate what parts of the workforce can adapt and help take us there and which folks can't see this vision, who resist and should probably move on.

    Pros

    Using cool technologies; co-workers are easy to get along with; free breakfast and lunch and snacks; rarely forced to do over-time work.

    Cons

    The managers usually are people who stay longer at the company so it's not so easy to get into managerial role if you are just an engineer.

    None to speak of at this time.

    I worked at App Annie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot of smart folks who are fun to work with, a good place to build camaraderie, pretty amazing perks (convenient location, free food, commuter benefits, decent health insurance, many company-hosted happy hours and parties), prominent global footprint, and aggressive sales team.

    Cons

    Upper management was short-sighted, not willing to invest in employees which resulted in high turn-over rate. Product itself is very robust but PMs lacked innovation and vision, very stuck in their old ways.
