    I have been working at Aptify full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    • Depending on your department, there is an abundance of challenging work. I am frequently tasked with solving extraordinarily difficult problems which almost always have something new to teach me despite being a software developer who isn't shy about the fact I have "seen and done it all" • Depending on your location: flexible work accommodations, unlimited PTO, generous 401K contribution, competitive health benefits,...

    Cons

    • The motto "Adapt Once, Adapt Often" may be sometimes taken to an extreme which can be overwhelming to some • Global Huddles were an interesting and exciting idea that have been executed pretty flawlessly, but I think it should have been all-or-nothing in terms of the frequency.

    Advice to Management

    Assuming the people posting these negative reviews were or are actual Aptify employees, then something has really changed for the worse. The Aptify I came to work for two years ago didn't employ people with these attitudes. There are too many negative reviews now to brush this off as people being temporarily discontent or confused about the changes happening. This should be further evident by my continued satisfaction...

    Pros

    Awesome team: really smart, passionate teammates. A real sense that we are delivering value to clients not just delivering software. I also like that as long as I'm being accountable to my team and clients, I can take time off to recharge when I need and in between projects.

    Cons

    The merger has put some strain on thing but for the most part we are business as usual. Management has had some hiccups but they are doing best they can to be direct and open, providing updates on regular basis while still figuring out the future direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep lines of communication open and honest.

    Pros

    Strong culture is helping get thru transition. #flexible core value is stretching some team members, but overall team continues to pursue strong product and service offerings

    Cons

    As with any transition, there are changes and unknowns. Can be stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Communication has been good once technical issues got worked out.

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

    Pros

    Remote most of the time and unlimited vacation and paid time off.

    Cons

    Management willing to lose hard working employees if they aren't innovative or selling the company. You have to keep driving home new ideas or selling services or you are out. It doesn't matter if you work hard or deliver, you have to impact the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    None. They didn't listen then, they aren't going to listen now.

    I worked at Aptify

    Pros

    The pros are that health coverage is good and there is a liberal leave policy as well as a good teleworking policy (so you don’t have to travel to Tysons). That being said, the best perks of the job involve not having to go to your job.

    Cons

    The CEO is relatively non-existent, showing up to talk at a company-wide meeting every couple of months. Sr. Management is ineffective. They provide very little guidance or support and with their ‘Matrix’ style you end up getting different sets of expectations for common deliverables based on who is managing each project. With their lack of training you get reactive feedback (at best) rather than proactive explanations...

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Management should be in the office every day leading their team(s) and making sure the company is moving in the right direction. Working from home offices and having video meetings is not a good way to show strong leadership and build a culture.

    I worked at Aptify

    Pros

    - A lot professional opportunities - Coworkers up to mid-management are fun to be around and hard working. - Flexible schedule

    Cons

    - Company has a cheerleader mentality and frowns upon employees who bring up concerns. - Work/life balance is minimal, even if it seems otherwise at first. - Senior management only cares about making their own jobs as easy as possible and does not care about actual company or employees. - Values are talked about, but when push comes to shove are often overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    - Stick to what you used to be good at - making good software. - If you want to make real change hold senior management accountable not just their employees.
