Pros

What I love about AppDirect is that both CEOs and the board are focused on creating a company that will thrive in the long-term. Unlike most enterprise startups that raise tons of money (at enormouse cost to equity), hire tons of sales people to get on the IPO revenue growth curve (while completely ignoring profitability or sustainability), AppDirect's leadership has focused on minimizing dilution and growing for the long term. Not to say it's not growing - it definitely is - but it's not shortsighted growth that comes at the expense of long-term value.

As the other reviewer wrote, AppDirect also has a huge focus on its core values, and this applies from the top to the bottom of the company.

Also the office is gorgeous.

Cons

AppDirect doesn't offer a lot of the perks of a normal SV startup (free lunches and dinners every day etc.).

Advice to Management

As the company grows, make sure you maintain a tight nit culture.

    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.
