    Pros

    Great mission, growing company, millennial friendly culture, cool technology. The company is changing rapidly but for the most part that creates opportunities for talented people

    Cons

    Don’t come if you aren’t ready to work hard / play hard. We could do a better job integrating our values (ICARE) into our language.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the customer, and your employees

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

    Pros

    Appriss has provided me a work place where I can come in and do what I am great at everyday under my own terms. My team includes peers and a boss that give me the tools/support I need to succeed and flourish in my role. I truly connect with the individuals I work with and know I can count on them whether I need support on a project, a quick laugh, or someone to listen to my ideas. I feel truly heard by those I work with. In addition to a great work environment, the benefits are out of this world. Appriss offers ROWE(results only work environment) allowing me to work when I want and where I want as long as I get the job done. Since joining the company last year, I have been able to take 3 trips to the beach! This company’s work/life balance is beyond anything I’ve seen. At my old work taking off was like pulling teeth at Appriss I make my schedule and make my own success! I’d be hard pressed to find a work place as great as Appriss!

    Cons

    Not really a con, but with the great benefits Appriss provides it does have high expectations of its employees. ROWE means results are expected in this untypical workplace. Some employees cannot keep up with this, but A/B Players will flourish.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great benefits! If things continue as they have during my first year, I plan to stay with Appriss for a long time!

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are wanting a work life balance. No questions asked if you need a day off. Opportunities to work remotely. Up-to-date technology. On-site wellness center where you can be seen for primary care visits or if you're sick. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    Lack of training and poor onboarding experience for new hires. Current closed office concept makes it hard to work together across teams.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Appriss full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -You can shirk all of your duties (if you are into that) because you won't be held accountable by anyone
    -IT dudes are chill, keep it up

    Cons

    -Management is only concerned with their next opportunity to cash out
    -The "mission-driven" work is merely a talking point to hide the fact that private equity has raided this company's once-great culture
    -Speaking of culture- it doesn't exist anymore. A pretty new website can't hide the fact that this place is destitute of any fun at all. Many employees work from home because the atmosphere is so depressing.
    -Business units aren't fooling anyone - it just makes it easier to sell off pieces of the business whenever it's deemed appropriate
    -How many reorganizations can a company go through in a calendar year? The company's strategy is solely to get sold.
    -Salaries are way below market
    -Turnover on the senior team is something that is a major red flag to employees

    Just an observation but a lot of these 5 star reviews look alarmingly similar to mass talking points sent out by HR...hmmmmmm.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with all of the small-arms fire and start running the business. You all are completely out of touch with your employees.

    Pros

    amazing company values, wonderful work environment with no judgement. The managers and upper management work with lower level employees to address concerns

    Cons

    Benefits are decent but a little expensive if you smoke (health insurance), advancement seems to be a little based in office politics rather than merit.
