    Pros

    Incredible development, both professionally and personally, that will open up infinite opportunities for anyone who takes part.

    Cisco acquisition has had very little impact on culture, it's only helping drive our success - more access to accounts, more funding for promotions and headcount, more engineers for innovation.

    No limit on growth within company. Development is based on merit with plenty of support around to smash it out the park.

    Cons

    Not your usual 9-5, but AppD doesn't recruit for people with that mindset. This is place where special people come to do special things.

  3. "New Joiner - Very positive experience to date."

    Pros

    Only here a short time but the place has such a positive feel (compared to my previous employments). Everyone I have met has come across driven and very enthusiastic which to me says a lot. Support in abundance. Very much looking forward to establishing a career here.

    Cons

    Too early for me to comment, there will be some - as with all places, but I am sure the Pros will outweigh the Cons.

    Advice to Management

    To early for me to comment.

    Pros

    Crazily fast career growth due to a combination of massive company growth and a preference for promoting from within, especially into management roles.

    Learn massively from being surrounded by people at the top of their game.

    Everybody pulls (a LOT more than) their weight.

    Cons

    Updates to systems and admin processes don't always keep up with our growth.

    It's great to work with really really smart people all working hard. The product is genuinely the best on the market and the Cisco acquisition has only made it easier to hit your sales target.

    Cons

    Offices are mediocre, some processes painful

    Advice to Management

    Keep going and keep hiring a-players

    Pros

    Working with super smart and inspiring people every day has really helped me to learn quickly plus develop my career.
    I love the fast pace, the constant challenges and that no two days are the same.
    There's a culture of commitment to excellence and never being average no matter what role you have here.
    Everyone in the team has had to earn the right to get a job here and everyone is highly motivated to always achieve. This makes me really proud to be part of the team.

    Cons

    AppD life isn't a 9-5, it can sometimes be challenging to balance everything that needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring & motivating us every single day & keep hiring to the same levels!.

    Cons

    Intense activity levels, the rewards are here, but this is no lifestyle job
    Technical staff need huge breadth of experience from deep technology to business pain, which can make a steep learning curve for some (or an exciting challenge)
