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

Pros

This company is very values oriented and listening to what employees have to say despite it is already 70+ in size. They recently, for instance, had anonymous survey where you could rate management and various topics completely anonymously and provide feedback. Based on that average rating was between 4-4.5 which is really great taking into account number of people in the company. The company is very schedule-oriented and no matter what hey say they value delivery on schedule in the first place. On upside also is management which is absolutely not intrusive and let you do your job your way as soon as you meet your commitments. They also are very supportive with small requests and whatever makes business sense.
Another huge plus is that company is profitable and cover it's expenses with it's revenue unlike vast majority of other startups out there.
Also, I like people here and feel like everyone is pretty happy and pleasure to deal with.

Cons

The company is schedule-oriented, so if you prefer to work in more relaxed manner you might feel not very comfortable here.

    Pros

    Got to working with really talented people, awesome workplace, great culture, enormous career opportunities.

    Cons

    Leaves are very less, just 21 per year, including all sick, casual, paid. You can get overweight with lunch & snacks at appdirect

    Advice to Management

    Please do not hire people managers.... It really harms the current appdirect culture.

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

    Pros

    - the brightest, exceptionally high-skilled and talented software engineers
    - entertaining and fun social events, including wine club and game nights
    - best in class foosball table (and players, huh)
    - pretty convenient location in beautiful Old Port area
    - huge potential to become the best place to work but ....

    Cons

    - one guy to rule them all: the decision making process is terrible
    - top to bottom style: no one listens for engineers and take into account their opinions
    - tech debt stacks for ages: the imposed culture of making shortcuts and fix them later (== never)
    - no product thinking: the platform is enourmous pile of ad-hoc customizations
    - bug fixing makes 90% of your day

    Advice to Management

    - trust your talent: let the engineers to take care of technology, focus on business
    - don't trade talent for cheap labour: the engineers you have now is your most precious and valuable asset
    - build product, not a monster with many faces
