    I have been working at AppNeta full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The management team at AppNeta really cares about the employees and are always looking for different ways to improve employee happiness. It is a fun environment to work in especially since we are growing at such a quick rate. AppNeta generally does at least one company wide fun event quarterly, along with bi-weekly lunches and weekly happy hours. AppNeta also gives back to the community with quarterly volunteer activites...

    Thanks for your comments - very much appreciated. Fun and work often don't go hand in hand, but the entire team at AppNeta really does focus on this and I agree, it is a fun place to work!

    I have been working at AppNeta

    Pros

    I’ve worked at both tech start-ups and the biggest tech companies and AppNeta is the really the best of both worlds. Like a start-up, it’s a fun, collaborative environment with good opportunities for growth. Like some large tech companies, AppNeta’s products lead the industry, use cutting edge technologies, and take very good care of their employees with; good benefits, free lunches, snacks, drinks provided daily. ...

    Cons

    None. AppNeta has learned from past mistakes about how to run a good company. In the past, there weren't enough processes, systems in place from what more tenured employees have said.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the same culture the same when AppNeta grows larger.

    I have been working at AppNeta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Like many start-up's AppNeta had some growing pains, I've read the posts from 2012-2014 and understand not everyone agreed with decisions that were made. Regardless, that is in the past and before my time. Currently AppNeta is making a name for themselves in the APM space and growing rapidly at the same time. Personal growth and leadership are the biggest reasons people should want to join this organization. I've...

    Cons

    My first few weeks at AppNeta were concerning because there were a lot of changes but the dust has settled. Additionally, this isn't particularly a con but it is an inside sales organization with a lot of out-bound activity, if that is not what you are looking for then this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pedal to the metal and don't look back. Continue to improve the product and the leadership moving forward.

    Awesome feedback - please keep it coming! Change is definitely a part of a start-up and managing the right amount of change is always hard. We've been better at managing this lately, but it's easy to lose track, so your insight there is appreciated.

    I have been working at AppNeta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great management team that seeks to create an environment where there is both a collective sense of responsibility and personal ownership of tasks. - High expectations for achievement are balanced with rewards (Thursday/Friday drinks, free lunches, company parties). Management team actively recognizes people in the weekly sales team meetings for doing something well or going above and beyond. -Open transparency...

    Cons

    I came from a background where I did not have to be in an office every day. For me, coming to AppNeta, I understood that I was changing roles and would need to be in the office every day. This for me was a transition, not so much a con, as there is good work life balance (better than average for most companies in Boston) and the office is in a great area of the city (Seaport).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build great culture! Merit based rewarding is extremely refreshing and great for a growing company.

    Pros

    I joined AppNeta a month ago, and I'm thrilled with how things are going so far. AppNeta has quickly proven to be an exciting environment to be in, unlike anywhere else I've worked. I've had an interesting and varied career path, which helps give perspective as to how lucky I am to be here. I've found that I'm surrounded by brilliant, energetic, and motivated people, which can't be said about most working environments....

    I have been working at AppNeta for less than a year

    Pros

    I recently joined AppNeta which is my first start-up in my career. The way AppNeta is run is refreshing. I enjoy how decisions are made collaboratively. It is a thoughtful approach where you feel that your opinion is valued and not the Corporate “because I said so” mentality. While working at a large enterprise fortune 500 organization we were encouraged to take risks, but were retaliated against when the risk...

    Cons

    AppNeta is in a fast growing growth mode and the only con is that there isn’t enough time in the day or resources to accomplish everything you want to do. Learning to prioritize what is important and being able to say I will put your request on my road map of future projects.

    I have been working at AppNeta full-time

    Pros

    Its great to be a part of an organization that is more interested in just doing the right thing then playing politics and pointing fingers. Employees are respected and valued as much as the customers. The environment here is very collaborative with an attitude of we'll get it done. Matt (CEO) is very approachable and has a true open door policy. (as opposed to I'll keep my door open, but don't come in). The growth...

    Cons

    Living outside the city and having to commute in can be a real chore. However that can be said for many companies outside AppNeta. While open floor space is very hit, can be challenging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts - much appreciated. The word "open" often gets overused and it's something we take very seriously when it comes to comms and being available. I do agree, that our open floor plan can present real challenges at times, but we think the advantages outweigh ...

    The culture here is fantastic. It is fast paced, high energy, and everyone seems happy to be here. And why wouldn't you be, when you are in one of the biggest markets in the tech industry right now, with amazing technology that can come in in disrupt this market? Great sales spiffs to keep you motivated, and beers on Friday/great company outings definitely help keep the morale up at all times. Great compensation plan,...

    Cons

    A little bit of turnover/disorganization at the management level but that has seemed to straighten itself out. With four great products to sell, sometimes the direction can be a little off in terms of trying to be a jack of all trades, but a master of none.

    Great thoughts - thank you for sharing them (please keep 'em coming...). Your observations re: some mid-level turnover are appreciated; start-ups and competing against the range of firms we do isn't for everyone. The key is to recognize this early and make the needed adjustments ...

    I worked at AppNeta

    Pros

    AppNeta has a community of people who want to learn and love to win. The past four years here have been a positive learning experience as well as introduced me to many long lasting professional relationships. Healthy combination of industry experience and developer driven mentality.

    Cons

    The office space was limited due to an influx in hiring over the past few months. Since moving west, I believe they have leased another floor to compensate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to train and hire young professionals - stay competitive in the workforce. Boston as a city is on the way up as it relates to innovation.

    I have been working at AppNeta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    * Everyone is willing to help you succeed. * No question is a dumb question. * The tools they have to help you do your job are efficient. * There is a lot of energy focused on your training to get you prepared.

    Cons

    * If you're not a pro-active person it is very easy for you to slip under the cracks. You need to ask questions, ask for help and just be proactive. No one's going to say no, but you need to make those opportunities for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Looking forward to the large expansion of the company and seeing if that changes the dynamic around here.
