    I worked at Appster full-time

    Pros

    Autonomy. Some of the leadership very smart.
    Work remote (pro or con) because they couldn't afford office space.

    Cons

    Don't really care about you.
    Dying market. Phone Apps are already extremely saturated.
    Dying business, no plans for future other than cutting costs.
    Company outlook changes week by week.
    No equity.
    Were very deceptive with their OTE plans. Put impossible metrics for "on target."
    No strategy for enterprise deals.

    Advice to Management

    Sell or raise capital. Not healthy to have company survival depending on one or two deals, especially in the entrepreneur market.

    Pros

    Appster is a truly amazing place to build a long term career. The leadership team is very passionate about helping everyone grow. The standards are very high and everyone is expected to work at the highest level possible. Mediocre employees don't last long and are weeded out by managers and peers quickly.

    It's an awesome work hard and play hard culture that's transparent and open, and everyone has a real shot at contributing to ideas and helping solve problems. The team is great and everyone is fun to work with.

    Cons

    The company is in hyper growth mode and systems and processes can be lagging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    The company is growing very quickly. There is always work to be done, so you are always busy. I actually feel like I'm contributing to the company success and growth. The work culture is by far the best out of any company I've ever worked for. You encouraged to share your ideas to improve company workflow, process and culture. It's even better when you actually see them implemented. The benefits are also amazing. The people here are very friendly and are always available anytime you need help. You learn a lot quickly and there is a ton of room for advancement.

    Cons

    Appster only hire's the best. The interview process can feel a little lengthy than most but if you get a chance to interview, better yet get a job with this company, DO IT! It is well worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I've seen first hand the CEO his level of dedication and commitment of ensuring this company grows. I want to see Appster grow into the next Apple

    Pros

    Appster is an amazing company which is in the early stages of it's international plan for world domination. We only hire the most amazing people in their respected fields which allows us to take pride in what we execute. We have an extremely transparent work environment with a flat organisational structure. Our success to date is largely due to our training and recruitment models which increases productivity by alleviating micromanagement. We get to work in an environment which is always changing and adapting to the current trends which creates the ability to really utilize creativity. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work at Appster I STRONGLY suggest drop everything and do whatever is in your power to lock in a position. This is an amazing opportunity I have been lucky enough to receive and I know that this will be my last stop before retirement!!! Appster is the future so show us what you can do to help lock in a spot to help change the world!!!

    Cons

    I have to break it to people in some cases that their idea isn't feasible, original or potentially viral. This is the only thing about the job which I don't like however people appreciate the honesty so it really isn't as issue at all and is a great place to be as a business.

    Advice to Management

    We need passionate people who share the vision and don't use Appster as a stepping stone. We need people who are in it for life!!

    I worked at Appster full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pros
    A kind of things that this company used to have like free meals, cabs , quaterly parties

    Cons

    Their is a lot of politics played by the top management officials and a certain manager.
    Just make the project go live before time by making P1 , P2 issues into P3's and P4's or rather ignoring them , make the build live by this way and make the Project award winning and when the project fires takes his team members out and put new members to make them work hard.And blaims those members for all this and affect their morals and appraisals.
    If someone raises the concern about his wrong actions, make him/her fire from the company.
    Doesn't have a sense how a manager behaves and always begs for chai/cigarettes from his collegues.

     Kudos to the team for taking up again the glassdoor rating from 2.8 to 4.4 again.

    Hr are puppets here , dont ask help from them. This will save your time and energy.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of that manager , hire new ones, company will again be on that stage it used to it

    I worked at Appster full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gone are those days. Management lied about its success, growth rate..They are paying for their sins now..

    Cons

    1)60-70% employees have left.
    2) They will fool you about company success- it’s a trap for their survival - Don’t join
    3) Most of the POs, managers, QAs, Dev team have left this company in last 2 months.. ( 3 months notice period but still everyone getting relived in 1 month - Why?? - Cos they are not able to pay their salary.
    4) HRs of other company are asking about Appster’s finiancial condition first and then about yr profile.. lol!

    Advice to Management

    Management guys should also start Uploading their resumes on job portal sites.. Lol!
