    Pros

    - Culture & Perks: All the snacks you could ever dream of, weekly massages, company events- this place truly makes you feel valued as an employee. - Leadership at corporate and local levels that are invested in your success - Quick to promote within - Start up feel, with major corporate backing - A product that I'm comfortable putting my name behind

    Cons

    Lack of Diversity - But they're working on it Not always a "customer first" approach Customer Success Org needs work- but it's growing!

    Advice to Management

    We need more female leaders! Not just in management positions, but true leaders throughout the company.

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

    Pros

    At the time of this writing, I am a relatively a new joiner (started 3 months back) and already having one of the best work experiences. I am always presented with challenges to take on to improve and learn. So if you are a go getter, this is a place to be. Being acquired by Cisco, we are in a great position to be a part of a giant company along with the startupy culture inherent to AppD.

    Cons

    Nothing that stands out so far in my short stint here.

    Advice to Management

    We still have a quota on number of vacation days an employee can take in a year. A lot of newer companies are coming up with open vacation time policy where in the number of days off are not limited and you can take days off as long as your line manager approves. So basically if you are getting your work done, amount of days off shouldn't matter.

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

    Pros

    It's almost an year since I have joined AppD as a new grad. I chose AppD among several other promising offers. I never regretted my decision for a sec(Oh yeah sometimes, when I gain my weight because of delicious snacks we have at AppD). Things here move quickly even after Cisco's acquisition. As a monitoring product, AppD provides huge scope to stay updated with latest technology

    Cons

    1. Frequent reorgs 2. Higher management should keep more effort to retain existing employees
