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

    Pros

    Fin-tech makes for a dynamic market sector as the products would be revolutionary and the overall aim of the company is to be a disruptor in industry.

    Cons

    HR Directpr and new recruiters esteem themselves as SME's they hire externally and fail to recognize true talent. Many people are beginning to leave and money cannot solve the firms true issues of disloyalty and buddy system promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to hiring better leaders with experience and restructure salary and equityfpr developers.

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

    Pros

    Nice start up perks. They are sincerely creating an environment that fosters building together. Finance management encourages leveraging experience and sharing ideas. People are nice to each other. Give you the tools you need to do your work. CFO, Controller, and Accounting team are experienced and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Open bullpen office with reduced sized desks can be a little cramped and distracting when you need to put your head down and knock out a project.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping finding people that add to the culture and try not to focus on hiring to fit the culture. Hire from a pool of employees when possible and do not settle for the quick hire of a crony because it is convenient or comfortable.

    I have been working at Addepar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting projects. Free meals, nice other perks. Great location. Several business associates are very kind, smart and make it enjoyable to work with. Other employees are very young and inexperienced.

    Cons

    Controller is at best an accounting manager. Horrific manager skills, poor communicator, lacks basic knowledge for the role. Needs to be taught how to manage and work through teams. Is rude and does not keep team properly informed or engaged.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a smart, engaging manager with strong finance knowledge for a public company with excellent leadership skills.

    I worked at Addepar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Technology sets the standard in the space - Talented team and great culture - Big vision and investors that are committed to the long term opportunity - Good market penetration selling into a complicated space

    Cons

    - The long term play takes ... time. Addepar's vision has required years of effort and persistence and will undoubtedly require much more. But it's well-positioned to capture a huge market.
