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

    Pros

    Apttus at it's core is a great company. We have an amazing team of incredibly talented people and are adding to this number daily. Our products are the best in our space and we're in a great position to continue the positive momentum. There is a huge opportunity for those who work hard and want to advance their career . Personally this is the biggest selling point for me and the reason I am here. At HQ the location is convenient on the peninsula and there are perks in the office.

    Cons

    The company has seen a lot of change in recent years and those who thrive in a consistently predictable environment may not be a fit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in your people. Transparency has improved across the board, but we can continue to improve here as well.

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

    Pros

    Company is maturing and adding structure, but still way to chaotic. The products seem to be the best in the space yet many unhappy customers and law suits. Benefits are solid, pay is competitive, different lunch options to order at a company subsidized amount. Nice perks include free snacks, drinks, happy hours, and company events.

    Cons

    The place has a revolving door and many good, no... great people have come and gone in a short time. Many I worked with are now gone because of the lack of respect from managers to their people, best described as 'toxic'.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people and trust and treat them better. Things need to improve across the board, so people can continue to improve here as well.

    Pros

    Many delivered lunch options, massages.

    Cons

    This company doesn't really have a culture. There's no sense of a bigger mission so consequently, there is no sense of being on a team. Inept HR department. No bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. (This advice is wasted on management.)

    Great Work Culture, Steep learning in QTC space with the Market Leader. Very helpful team - you just need to raise your hand for help and the team collaborates to make you and organization successful . Love this attitude.

    A little pressure at times while working on the project, but I have seen and experienced this in other companies as well.

    Train your employees in emerging products of yours , not only CPQ and CLM.

    Pros

    Apttus has an amazing market opportunity and is capitalizing on it in a big way. It's been around for a while, over 10 years now, and they have established themselves as the Market leader in the QTC space. I have been working there for 4+ years and they have given me ample opportunity to move upwards in the organization, which I have also capitalized on.

    Cons

    As a company who awards hard work, they have seen employee turn over in certain departments because not everybody works well in a fast pace environment. The fact that they are a disruptive start-up with high ambitions for their market defining products, it's not for everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work by rewarding the hard working and ambitious employee, also continue investing in the young employees who are looking to show what they can do.
