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

    Pros

    I didn't know Appway before being chased. I discovered a company that gathers many criteria I had in mind.
    - qualified and valuable people
    - very good Management team
    - dedicated, supporting and coaching mode always on
    - good product
    - excellent reputation
    - young international spirit
    - company striving for improvement
    - self-motivated employees (no need for Management pressure)
    It is such a pleasure to say that our major problem is growth! We have the problem that every company dreams of having...

    Cons

    Wages are not very high.
    Management is a bit too optimistic on the Business Model and forecasts.
    Recruitment is sometimes a bit fuzzy, candidates don't always know for what position they are applying for.
    People away from the headquarter can feel out of the game (collaboration is variable from one team to another).
    Growth make teams and people more conservative. It generates also some resource issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on taking care of individuals and selecting the most qualified people. To hire talents you need to adapt your wage strategy depending the region and profile. Make sure you are always listening to the business and the market.

    I have been working at Appway full-time (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 have been working at Appway full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    Too new to offer advice at this point.

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

    Pros

    Good career opportunities if you take advantage of the chaos and take charge of your own career development. Opportunities to travel, work abroad or take responsibility in new positions as the company grows. Many excellent colleagues, both on a technical and on a personal level.

    Cons

    Compensation is closer to a startup than an international medium-sized business. Raises are small and hard to get, even when you take on over more demanding roles, since that often happens informally (so make sure you cut a good deal when signing). Little opportunities for further training that can be useful beyond Appway (only product-related trainings).
    The consolidation of internal processes is lagging behind company growth. This has led to tensions between product development and consulting services.

    Advice to Management

    Get expert coaching to cope with company growth and meet the needs of clients and employees. From the employees perspective, HR management (beyond recruitment) is a big pain point.

    Pros

    A place where ideas, innovations are shared everyday, young spirits who want to succeed and do better and better, success and growth.
    No hierarchy or politics or working together for the same objective.
    A lot of opportunities (for creation, for leadership, for travel...) - not borring
    Really at the start of a excited story. you must be part of it.

    Cons

    A lot to do, to create, to initiated, so clearly not the place for lazy people.
    As the company is growing quickly the environment is of course changing quickly, so clearly not the place for someone who needs his small confort without to much changed and where everything is decided for years
