    An employer that inspires employees

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Marketing Manager, Northern Europe in London, England
    Current Employee - Marketing Manager, Northern Europe in London, England

    I have been working at AppDynamics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is rare to find a company who believes their mission statement and actively works towards it. They empower their employees, value the company culture AND has a great product to take to market. AppDynamics enables employees to be better than they thought they could be by encouraging team work, collaboration, personal development and integrity.

    Cons

    Young company so minor administration processes need to be confirmed, however, this also enables employees to have a greater say in how certain procedures would work best for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Keep communicating. Don't loose the small company feeling.

    The next great software company, no. Probably the next BMC:

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Bracknell, England
    Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Bracknell, England

    I have been working at AppDynamics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -On par with typical SaaS earnings
    -Great place to learn how to cold call

    Cons

    -Poor/Non-Existent people management
    -Exlusively KPI driven (KPIs developed by mature businesses from a different era)
    -Not at all a Silicon Valley culture. Basically like working for BMC (a very old, very un-silicon valley software company)
    -Culture of intimidation from the Veep downwards
    -Severe cronyism as everyone followed Veep from BMC
    -Long work hours
    -No social balance. You are there to make calls, bring in deals and they pay you. Any kind of enjoyment/banter is looked as taking your eye off the ball
    -Culture is viewed as people who work excessively hard and put AppD above all else. Consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Won't be taken on board as they already know better than anyone else in the industry

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
