    I have been working at Apprenda full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great People, Great Offices, Great Software..

    I can't say enough about the team, great guys and gals. I'm constantly challenged to be the best I can be.

    Cons

    The hours are sometimes long, but that's the way it is! When we work long hours we generally blow steam off at happy hour as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    "Best Company I've Worked At, Excellent Future Outlook"

    I have been working at Apprenda (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great working environment with like-minded teams; frustrations are rare.
    Weekly catered lunches, free beer on tap, refrigerators stocked with all kinds of drinks, delicious espresso.
    Team and company-wide events, bi-weekly company updates, quarterly retrospectives, cross-functional projects - this is a team-focused company that encourages everyone to get involved and contribute the best way they can.

    Cons

    None for me! But consider potential cons, depending on who you are:

    Being a startup, there isn't a clearly defined career path, so you make one for yourself; if you don't want to take initiative on your own, then maybe wait until the company is bigger. If you are expecting an annual salary adjustment just for showing up to work, you might be disappointed. Things can change very quickly, so if you don't like change, you might not like working at Apprenda.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Take advantage of our very dynamic team that can quickly adjust to change.

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

    Pros

    It's hard to quantify all the pro's of this company. I came to Apprenda, with several years of sales experience, but lacking strong technical expertise outside of my general knowledge and everyday utilization of technology. This caused me to be very hesitant and nervous during my first few days on the job and I doubted that I could be successful working for a software company in the rapidly growing industry of cloud computing. Any doubts I had were wiped away in one week, and this is why...

    - Extensive training program during first month
    - Constant positive reinforcement, support and collaboration from peers
    - Active mentoring
    - Fun and interactive on-boarding, via internal website based campaign
    - Competitive pay and career growth opportunities
    - Team building activities frequently
    - Contagious team atmosphere
    - Inspiring colleagues and leadership team
    - Friday lunches for employees
    - Great work space

    Cons

    I'll let you know when I find one...

    Advice to Management

    Stay aggressive, never stop innovating and improving the product. Always be involved no matter how big Apprenda gets, and continue to inspire your employees through action. Sometimes seeing a fearless leader charge into battle is all the motivation a person needs. Keep up the great work!

    Cheers!

    Pros

    When I started to work at Apprenda I wasn't sure what to expect, but this company is awesome.
    You will work with the smartest & friendliest people in the world.
    The culture is great and everyone is there to help/assist you wherever you need help.

    Cons

    The interview process is hard (I think I had 9 interviews in total) but like mentioned above totally worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Together we can do great things :) !

    "Intern"

    I worked at Apprenda part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly nice group of people.

    Work and Projects are made to feel meaningful, and personal impact is palpable.

    Very relaxed and understanding atmosphere, still go things done when they needed to be.

    Cons

    I was an intern, and much of the time it felt like my exact task was hazy. I had a few projects, but between those, I always felt like I spent too much time waiting for something to do or asking for something. On a few tasks that where put on JIRA, I asked to start them and was told not to.

    Lose project definitions when I had a project to do. Misunderstanding with management on difficulties with project time-line.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest to have a more set intern program, but they already did that with the next group of interns.
