I have been working at AppFolio full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun, creative, and team based culture. Company has solid growth. Pays great attention to employee's needs. Customers loves the products. Lots learning opportunities. A perfect place to start.

Cons

Fast pace demands quick on the job growth. Products are business facing. If you are only interested in hot technology buzz, this may not be a right place for you. The company is very customer and product centric. This is good for most of us.

Advice to Management

Keep up with good job of growing the company and products. Couple more holidays will be better.

    Pros

    Great employees, great educational / flexible atmosphere, competitive salary.

    Cons

    It has grown very quickly - so everything that goes along with that . . . (more politics, more separation from execs to the rest of the group, slowed growth within some departments)
    No 401K match

    Advice to Management

    Remember that everyone working here has a career path in mind - ask your employees what they want over the next year or two with their responsibilities and career growth.

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

    Pros

    I worked with many wonderful and intelligent people at AppFolio.
    AppFolio Property Manager is a good product that many customers genuinely love.
    Santa Barbara is a beautiful, if expensive, place to live.
    They offer decent benefits to salaried employees.
    Free snacks.
    Fitness classes several times a week.

    Cons

    Low pay.

    Anemic raises.

    Little to no opportunity for advancement.

    An unequal culture. There is much lip service paid to company values that are not exercised.

    Rampant cronyism in the middle tier of the company, at the expense of promoting from within.

    Incompetent and under qualified middle management.

    Disconnect between upper and middle management.

    AppFolio is trying very hard to become profitable before a future IPO, putting a huge strain on sales and customer support as more poor fit customers are brought on. Scaling up is proving to be AppFolio's largest problem.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and deliver on your promises. You are killing moral.
