    I have been working at Appway full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As someone that has worked for the New York office since the beginning, I can not say enough great things about this organization. From the culture down to the staff (globally), Appway is a class act. Never have I seen such passion, camaraderie and team work. It is a pleasure to be surrounded by such an amazing team!

    Cons

    Since we are still so new in New York, our notoriety is not quite out there, yet. BUT we are getting there.

    I worked at Appway full-time

    Pros

    Friendly team. Good group of folks, for the most part.

    Cons

    Horrible management. No one knows what they are doing or what is going on, right down to the CEO. Very little to no communication. No one really cares to know what your thoughts or concerns are.

    Dear Appbird, Thank you for your feedback and for raising your concerns. We would like to hear them from you directly so, please don’t hesitate to approach People Operations or the Head of your Department. At times we can all feel like we're not heard, and although we try to keep everyone happy, we are not able to guarantee it. We do, never-the-less, want everyone to understand why individual decisions have been made, and want you to know that our door is always open.

    Pros

    good life/work balance, that's it, nothing else.

    Cons

    Don't believe the positive reviews, Extremely high turnover, can't keep employees, out of touch management. Company having financial difficulties, may close the NY office.

    Hello, We are sorry to hear you had a negative experience while working with us. However, contrary to your review, we’ve recently completely renovated our entire New York City office and continue to invest in the team by adding new openings. We strongly believe in providing our employees the chance to advance within the company to leadership roles, and with that can come some growing pains too. We are far from shutting this office down, but can appreciate you voicing your concern and wish you the best in your next role.

    I have been working at Appway full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Appway has developed a great BPM tool set and have achieved some very impressive wins in their space. The people I met with are capable, talented and interesting. My interaction with them during the interview process was a big factor in joining this company. At each stage during interviewing they were courteous, professional and punctual . I also met with the CEO and realized that this overall positive environment comes from him down to the rest of the company.

    Cons

    We are still a relatively small company so it is difficult at times when it comes to name recognition and attracting new hires but this is changing as Appway is growing daily.

    I worked at Appway full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked in Appway 2.5 years and I can say it was one of the nicest working experiences I had: nice people, nice environment, nice offices. I had a manager who supported me and gave the possibility to work on multiple projects/areas I thought I can have an impact. The leadership team is experienced the CEO is super nice and kind, very friendly and treating people as people, not as employees or numbers. He built over the years a nice company culture I suspect is very difficult to find nowadays. All in all I like it and I would definitely recommend the place to anyone eager to learn and to work.

    Cons

    There is nothing that I can think of as a "con".
