    I have been working at AppOnboard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong leadership team with a track record of success, warm company culture where people actually care about each other, ample opportunity to grow professionally, lots of exciting buzz as a result of Google partnership, and a shared passion around building something innovative in our space.

    Cons

    AppOnboard is still building out a full slate of perks and benefits, so hopefully that will ramp up into next year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employees to retain strong talent!

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

    Pros

    No egos in the company; everyone is collectively in it to win it together. Lots of flexibility in being able to work from home if you need to. The focus here is definitely in hiring very sharp and inquisitive people who put their best work forward in positively contributing towards building a fantastic place to work for each other, and providing a fantastic experience for clients.

    Cons

    It's a startup, and a very fast-moving one at that, so the path forward is one that we're all carving out and building together. This isn't for everyone, but for those who are okay with tackling the unknown and building something new and innovative, it comes with the territory.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! It's working!

    Pros

    Use to think of everyone as family now with the rapid growth no one knows anyone anymore awkward elevator rides you can only imagine.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued and feel like they’re replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to speak to everyone not those of certain departments

    Pros

    Great culture, nice people. The engineering and exec management are genuine, seasoned and forward thinking. I've worked at my startups, and this culture was the most welcome and open I've experienced.

    The interview was also a blast: a mix of white boarding algorithms, live coding challenges, and good humored conversation.

    Cons

    This is a startup, so be prepared to move fast and do things that make a direct impact and on the business!

    Amazing product and work culture, company feels more like a family than "work." Great feeling that you are building something that is about to scale BIG time.

    Cons

    Nothing at this time, maybe 401K in the future?
