    I have been working at App Annie full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am comfortable saying that the London team has a great culture and operates like a small startup family. - Great culture and vibe in the London office - Really smart coworkers that constantly push each other to become better - Innovation had slowed down in the last year, but things are improving really fast now on the innovation side. Employees can see this is a big focus for the company. - The product is really...

    Cons

    - This is a very fast paced company where things constantly change (for the better or worse), so you need to be ready and comfortable with that idea. - Americas and APAC will always have better perks and benefits than in London which sometimes can be frustrating - Our job often relies on people in other regions which means time zone difficulties can occur where you don't get the answer you need as quickly as you need....

    I worked at App Annie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    App Annie are true market leaders in the mobile App data, they have a client list that would the envy of any business. There is a reason the likes of Google, Facebook, Nike, Adidas and others choose to work with App Annie. The EMEA team culture has remained very strong, despite some headwinds over the last 12 months, but this togetherness has meant the region has performed above expectations and I would fully recommend...

    Cons

    As mentioned, the last 12 months have seen some challenges at the exec level of the business, but these have now been ironed out and there is clarity and stability for a bright future

    Pros

    The London team is a close family. It is a pleasure to work with smart, genuine, interesting and fun people. Our market leading offering is fantastic, our R&D team are building amazing stuff, and selling it is a pleasure. Spending all day talking about the trends and opportunities within the mobile economy is a super interesting.

    Cons

    The business has been changing over the last year. Yes, this has been challenging and there has been some real issues at a global level. We have lost some amazing people and there was some regrettable events when it came to personal management. However, the EMEA team is lead by people who really care about their teams, and the global team have put words into action on what needs to change to take the company to the next...

    I worked at App Annie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Currently not many. Most of the people are decent

    Cons

    They company is lost. There’s no strategy. Random targets are announced without a clear path to get there.

    Advice to Management

    The current CEO is out of his depth. He actually contradicts himself in his soliloquies.

    I worked at App Annie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not really much I can say here.

    Cons

    Awful management and managers. I’ve been screamed at, threatened and made to feel worthless. The atmosphere is one of fear and intimidation. There’s also a great deal of nepotism which just adds to the negativity that engulfs this company. And the product isn’t as good as they think/say it is and is seriously overpriced and overrated. Avoid.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening and stop behaving like spoilt, entitled little children. Stand up for your employees. Stop shouting!

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

    Pros

    Great place to learn everything there is to know about Mobile as the product is fantastic. Flat structure so you get to be independent in the way you work, no micro-management. Fun people to work with, great culture. Amazing benefits and competitive salary.

    Cons

    Feels like they are sometimes too much politics.

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to promotion, select the right person for the job (qualified, track record of success and leadership skills) rather than based on personal preferences

    Pros

    Talented friendly people at mid and low levels

    Cons

    App Annie's senior management assign little value to the people who work for them. Cutting costs has become a top priority and this is leading to short sighted, poorly planned and damaging decisions, coming from the center, that put a lot of strain on the rest of us. At this stage in the company's life career opportunities have become non-existent (workforce isn't expanding) and there's no training and development....

    Pros

    Great work environment/culture with open communication and team work. Really competitive remuneration both on basic salary and commissions. Strong leadership, where managers/directors can be approached for advice and direction. After work and tea, building activities encouraged. You are supported and trained, but more so you are surrounded by smart industry specialists. The ability to learn something new and work in...
