      Pros

      Culture is incredible. You won’t find one person at AD that isn’t a respectful and kind individual.

      Cons

      The product is truly ahead of its time. experience in tech won’t help you here - you learn something new everyday. This can be overwhelming for some, but everyone at the company is extremely intelligent.

      Why I chose AppDirect over Venture Capital

      Jul 30, 2019 - SDR Team Lead in San Francisco, CA

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      // Mentorship - I went from minimal sales experience to setting up deals with some of the largest enterprise companies in the world. AppDirect has also given me a deep understanding of industries like ISV, Manufacturing, MSP/VAR, FinServ, Telco, etc. // View - 360 unobstructed view of San Francisco from the 25th floor (I’m writing this while looking at the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz) // Friends - I couldn’t wish for a more supportive and friendly work environment, even senior leadership has taken the time to get to know me personally // Flexibility - I’m given the freedom to take daily gym breaks and work from home when needed // Career Development - I get ~$,1500/yr to go to events, take classes, buy books, etc. as well as unlimited free access to Udemy courses // Salary - they pay is above market average (with an uncapped quota + accelerators) with significant career growth opportunities, 401K, fully covered health/dental // Enablement - I’d like to think we are the most enabled SDR team out there...AppDirect has invested in giving us world-class sales tools and marketing collateral, and hands-on training (making my job easier) // Andddd yes there’s free lunch every day and all the snacks/drinks you could want

      Cons

      We've had some turnover, but that's the nature of the industry. The reality is that we're getting invaluable experience.

      Overall, a great and stable company to work for. Great people.

      Pros

      Good view Salad lunch every day Hot lunch on Friday The teams are still trying their hardest and are generally great Plenty of work to do Healthcare is decent only if you have no dependents.

      Cons

      Compensation is not competitive for any role in SF. The only promotions are for sycophants or those that threaten to leave after working themselves to death.There is no meritocracy at AppDirect. The leadership team does not provide any leadership. Management does not know how to coach their teams or make improvements for their teams. Leadership could not tell you what success for the company is. All the extra work from the lay offs last year is still with the remaining employees but with no increase in pay. HR does not take action on yearly feedback survey.

      Recently laid off about 50 employees in which most of them are based in SF office.

      Pros

      Work life balance is good. Product teams rarely have to work over time or ok weekends. Amazing view of the city. Convenient location to restaurants. Catered lunch once a week on Fridays. Plenty of snacks. 20 days PTO a year.

      Cons

      20 days PTO a year, but you have take 3 mandatory PTO for Christmas and new year. Recently laid off about 50 employees. Pretty much all Tech supports, Account managers, and QAs are laid off in SF location. Sunnyvale Plug and Play location is shut down due to down sizing. No performance bonus. No 401k marching. Healthcare is expensive if you have dependents. Lots of partners have terminated partnerships with the company due to low profit/sales.
