    I have been working at AvePoint full-time

    Pros

    I’ve worked at AvePoint for a few months now. I made the decision to switch jobs after a pretty long career at my first job out of college. I wanted to join a global company to expand my knowledge. So far so good. I am impressed with the quality of people here – everyone is friendly, smart and committed. Those who aren’t, seem to be weeded out naturally. Teamwork is a must and my job description allows me to explore...

    Cons

    I came from a structured and formal environment, none of which is this company. I am in charge of organizing my own day and getting my job done, so sometimes it’s easy to lose focus. I could see that the company wouldn’t be right for everyone. It took a little while for me to feel comfortable with my knowledge since there is so much to learn, but the challenge is worth it so far.

    Advice to Management

    eep listening to us – you have really great people working here who want the best for the company.

    I worked at AvePoint full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for travel, if you like that. Pretty good work/life balance (outside of the travel). Flexible work structure. No hard requirement to be in the office regularly. Base pay is industry competitive. Great place to cut your teeth on Microsoft O365 sales and particulars

    Cons

    Their products are becoming obsolete by the likes of Microsoft and other ISV's who are more specialized in multi-cloud management. The nature of AvePoint's offerings, pricing, support structure, sales program, etc, are a great fit for companies in the employee range of 500-5,000. But once you get into a Fortune 500, or large global enterprise, it becomes less relevant, too expensive, and too convoluted of a message....

    Advice to Management

    Just focus on Mid-Market. You could grow 50% in the next 2-3 years if you just doubled the size of your call center and BDR's and focused on companies in the 500-5,000 employee range. Also, you need to expand your products to manage multiple clouds. And get better at analytics and other areas that actually drive value to your customers. You need a better career development plan and better communication from the...

    I worked at AvePoint full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Some of your colleagues are nice people.

    Cons

    I wish I didn't even have to give one full star as a review. Really, AvePoint is an awful place to work and there are almost no redeeming qualities. Management are lifers that just got promoted by outlasting their colleagues. Why are there two CEOs? Company has no direction at all and pivots every quarter (perhaps as budgets are missed). C-levels continue to fatten their bank accounts on the backs of low-paid workers....

    I worked at AvePoint full-time

    Pros

    AvePoint has a real sense of commaraderie within its ranks. Company culture emphasizes teamwork.

    Cons

    AvePoint salary compared to the market is very low. It is known that AvePoint promotes from within to keep salaries low. AvePoint values loyalty above anything else. Many of the people you meet in director, VP, and manager positions earn those jobs solely for staying with the company for years and moving up the ranks as others have left rather than any special skills. And these individuals shift from department...

    Pros

    Not many pros. Inept management. Product is decent - at best.

    Cons

    Compensation is not good Benefits are awful - VERY expensive to employee No feedback - up or down. Yes, they do reviews, but no one does anything with them.

    I have been working at AvePoint full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This is an innovative, young company with mature solutions. This is an exciting place to be! If you are willing to go with the flow and get involved, the rewards are steep. I’ve learned a lot about the software, and the Microsoft space in almost two years. I enjoy the customer-centric focus as well since I speak with customers every day. I’m surrounded by people who care about each other and about the company.

    Cons

    The company moves quickly – strategies and focuses change. Trying to keep up can be a challenge. Stay out of the drama and gossip, every company has it and so does this one. It’s a global company, so communicating in different time zones can create delays on projects.

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

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy of day to day work and ability to wear many hats. High visibility if you are great at your job. Surrounded by bright people. Willingness to explore and implement new ideas quickly. Lots of mentors to choose from who all bring a different specialty to the table. Modern office space.

    Cons

    Management can be top heavy depending on your team. Workload is usually heavy. Company has a few notable growing pains but it is moving in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Try to maintain an enthusiastic workforce. The people make the difference here.

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

    Pros

    No' red tape' and little corporate 'bureaucracy' allows you to be efficient and accomplish a lot. Ability to live outside of your job description provides lots of opportunities to grow as a professional. Flat organizational culture with office perks like happy hours, cool group outings, basketball/ping pong, and casual dress. Also the people are intelligent and make it easy to come to work every day.

    Cons

    Like any company, there is change, but the one company I was apart of that didn't experience frequent change was a bore. Change isn't for everyone but it works for me.
