    Pros

    Executive Team really cares about the well being of there employees, and I am not just talking about a coke and a smile on BBQ day. It goes above and beyond that, and it has really made an impact in my life. Which has now allowed me to have a peace of mind. Thank you AppStar for your support and help.

    Cons

    Only thing that I can think of that would be a down fall for me working at this company is.....Sorry I cant think of anything :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!

    Pros

    I've been at Appstar for almost four years, I work in the corporate office in the Operations side of things. In my tenure I've learned a lot about the industry and myself, I am appreciative of the opportunities and rewards Appstar has given me. The industry is challenging and complex, come in with the right attitude and upper management will recognize you.
    A few pros in my eyes:
    Team oriented company
    Challenging and fast paced environment make time fly
    Monday through Friday, no weekend work
    Centrally located

    Cons

    Most people start by 7am so if you're not a morning person you see this as a con, and if you are a morning person then this is a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep your employees engaged

    Pros

    The only this that is positive is the A+ BBB ranking that you earn by paying the annual costs and responding to complaints resolved or not.

    Cons

    The leadership!! Vague and nebulous generic goals and corporate objectives. "Grow and build etc etc" Unfortunately, executive management is not sales minded and is also not very in touch with the people that work here. Nothing feels or sounds genuine and the discussions you do have sound like they are straight out of Bill Lumbergh

    Advice to Management

    Drop the generic business talk and say something of substance and value. Everyone wants to grow....but can we make a measureable plan or maybe not just make it up as we go?!
