    I have been working at Apttus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The new management team is a breath of fresh air. Communication, transparency, focus on values, and most importantly I can clearly see how we are going lead the middle-office with direction we are heading. Lots more to do but I am encouraged by everything I am seeing starting with CEO and moving down the lines of management. I’ve been at a number of companies in my career, but this is probably most excited I’ve been at any point so far. Thanks to the team for making this a great place today.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change in the organization over the past several months but it’s clear this change has been really positive. Sometimes it’s hard for the employees to stay current on all of the exciting things happening at the company so communication is key.

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

    Pros

    None really. Once upon a time used to be the leader in QTC space, but not anymore. Had some great people working here, but almost all have left.

    Cons

    Horrible culture, not employee friendly at all. The new leadership is not based out of the HQ, and trying to bring in their own people outside the HQ area. The way they handled the recent mass layoffs in June was TERRIBLE to say the least. Long timers and achievers were let go, with no reason, for no fault of theirs, and with very little severance package which is especially hurting during the pandemic. Clear favoritism. You’re golden as long as you are in the good books of a few so called leaders. They had multiple layoffs of working level employees, in the name of cost savings, but immediately followed by hiring overpaid VP’s of their own choice. Bad strategy. They don’t have 401k match, don’t offer company equity, and salaries are average at best. Not a company where you’d want to put your heart and soul.

    Pros

    Not many pros come to mind

    Cons

    In my brief 2 years with this company, it seems there has been a struggle to establish a positive identity after the first CEO's firing. There have been lots of changes on the executive level, but the level of transparency has not lived up to what has been promoted. Definitely a rocky road ahead for this company.
