    The company has a great working atmosphere and company values.

    Cons

    Things are always changing and it can be difficult to know who to talk to for certain issues

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

    Pros

    Excellent health and medical benefits
    Work from home as needed
    Convenient location with free parking
    ROWE flexibility in some teams
    Awesome corporate mission

    Cons

    Functional silos
    Not enough on-site technical resources to maintain critical infrastructure
    Confusing technical support organization
    Nepotism
    Lack of coordination between sales/account management and technical teams
    Use of project management tools are at manager discretion-- so employees are left with no documentation to support their work
    Managers are allowed to limit their employees' interaction with other teams-- so employees are forced to work without collaboration
    Annual incentive program-- regardless of the agreement that employees sign, managers can offer incentives at their own discretion, resulting in employees with identical metrics receiving vastly different incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Now that Appriss has acquired its competition, service is key to keep customers from seeking startup alternatives. Flatten the organization-- give everyone a voice. Work to eliminate silos, and remove managers that force their teams to work alone. Salary study to evaluate possible discriminatory pay practices.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, within a relaxed setting. There is also very meaningful work, as the core of the business was developed for protecting victims or potential victims from felons.

    Cons

    The structure in some divisions is extremely 'tall', where multiple levels of managers dictate from the top down. This cadre of managers tend to have strong change aversion and are too disconnected from daily functions that create profit to understand needed changes.

    Advice to Management

    If your organization is not prepared to grow and take on new meaningful ventures, your most valuable employees will outgrow Appriss.
