      I worked at AppNeta

      Pros

      Beer, ping-pong, open office space, music, and most people are friendly.

      Cons

      Unstable, poor management, HIGH turnover. You never know, you could be next... Management will act like they care about you but they really don't AKA fake! One day their hiring, the next they're firing. Be ready to walk on eggshells.

      Advice to Management

      Take a management class or 5! Figure out what you're doing so employees don't suffer ups and downs. Maybe turnover would be lower but I guess you don't care.

      I do appreciate your feedback - thank you. The management here does care (deeply) about both AppNeta employees and customers alike. I personally wish your experience here was more positive. Change can be hard and startups are full of change; we'll continue to learn and grow as we ...

      I have been working at AppNeta

      Pros

      Great company culture, employees are great to work with, nice approachable management and plenty of freebees, generous days off and benefits. Management frequently allows for early days before long weekends and days off after a great quarter. There is a lot of openness on the state of the company.

      Cons

      I'm guessing this is common in start ups but there is a high turnover rate. I think employees in other positions besides sales should have opportunities to earn bonuses.

      Advice to Management

      I would work to find out why so many people are leaving. I think opening sales up to being able to work remotely would greatly increase the interest and hiring of sales people. Rewarding employees for great work or projects with bonuses is also a great motivator.

      Thanks for your comments and thoughtful feedback. You are correct - turn-over in a startup isn't uncommon and even more frequent during the growing pains that come with changes in direction. But we can always listen better, communicate more frequently, and do more help the engaged ...

      I worked at AppNeta full-time

      Pros

      Really really easy HR process. If you need a placeholder job right out of college that will just barely allow you to survive in Boston while you find something more legit, this is the way to go as long as you don't have very high standards or self-respect. From what I remember, they were growing kinda fast? Also, the products they sell are solid.

      Cons

      Where to start. 12 hour days are the standard and they pay you on average $35k/ year. If you do the math it's basically McDonalds pay. They have implemented all of the least sophisticated, high pressure, low cost, high turnover sales practices developed in the technology space. It's more or less a sweatshop full of college educated kids making 150-200 dials per day and reading...

      Advice to Management

      I recommend that Bain fire all of the upper management and replace them with bona fide sales professionals who understand how to scale an organization in a sustainable way.

      All input is valued. We moved from Wellesley in 2011, and many aspects of AppNeta have evolved since then. Today, the AppNeta team is all about quality of character, desire for personal and company success and the drive to make it happen with a careful eye towards a healthy work/life ...

      I worked at AppNeta full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Gaining the knowledge that if these incompetent and delusional people can be executives, then there is no doubt I will one day get there myself.

      Cons

      Where to begin: don’t let the fact that Bain invested $16 million in this company or that SolarWinds, another Bain company, the company they were supposedly competing against and whose product they constantly trashed on, also invested in them fool you- there is a reason why no new investors have come on board. Zero continuity within the organization. Every department does things their own way, since management has...

      I worked at AppNeta full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      - The product appears to have a good amount of R&D behind it. - Fulfills a market need. - If you last it could be an opportunity into sales. Keep in mind that if you only last a quarter or two you probably won't look very appealing to other companies.

      Cons

      - No work/life balance. - High turnover. - Very minimal sales training. - High stress.

      Advice to Management

      Everything seems to be in place (product, engineering, and marketing) except for the sales model. No talented sales professional will stick around with such a high turnover rate, and no work/life balance.
