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

    Pros

    This might be a long list...

    1. Management show complete faith in their teams.
    2. 20% of your working hours dedicated to self development (!!!!).
    3. If you perform, then I've seen and experienced managers actively seek ways to reward you in cash, paid for courses, time off. We are very well looked after here.
    4. I've just realised it's actually more than 20%. 20% per week, and then additional PTO specifically for Self Development.
    5. Cracking on-boarding scheme.
    6. Never have I worked with such passionate, determined, legitimate, professionals. Every day I'm working 10/10 just to keep up. You cannot "phone it in" here, but you wont want to - it's motivating and inspiring being surrounded by such people.
    7. Hiring policy is "Only the best" - and it's worked. Though I'm not sure how I managed to slip by unnoticed!!
    8. A growing company always comes with new positions and back-filling, so career opportunities are great with strong internal promotions looked upon favourably.

    Cons

    You are expected to travel. That can take some adjusting to if you've been in a regular office job up till now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Meritocracy environment, everyone @ AppD is hired based on the same criteria so you are working alongside like-minded people which pushes you to get better everyday, challenged daily, continuous development, inspiring leadership, great product, accelerated career development and opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    Not a 9-5, can be difficult to manage a personal life alongside doing what has to be done to be successful in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push us to be better everyday, continue to hire A players

    Pros

    - Inspiring leadership
    - the opportunity to work closely with and learn from the best in the industry
    - a commitment from the business to train and develop each and every individual no matter which area of the organisation that they work in
    - the opportunity to see the work that you do directly influence the growth and performance of the business
    - clear career paths and progression
    - encouragement to take ownership of and define your own career
    - reward and recognition for the work that you do

    Cons

    The closest thing to a 'con' is that AppDynamics isn't for everyone, it's challenging and demanding on a daily basis however I truly believe that is what you makes you great, elevates you to another level and sets you up for a successful career no matter where you go or what you do!

    Advice to Management

    Never lose the commitment to train, develop and inspire each and every employee as you do!

    Pros

    - A true professional test of who you are and what you are capable of. If you want to work in a culture of excellence, then this is the place for you.
    - Leading big, complex challenging deals that are strategically aligned to pressing and relevant IT/Business initiatives
    - Working for the Top 1% of Sales Leaders Globally (data point)
    - Data driven culture
    - Top class CEO
    - Clear vision for growth and product roadmap
    - AppD is known throughout the industry for producing the best sales talent - so this looks brilliant on your CV
    - There will always be one leader that will truly invest in making you brilliant and will truly care about you and making you achieve everything you wanted from your career.
    - Earning potential is there
    - Exciting life where you feel the adrenaline of achieving big things
    - Incredible perks and travel and President's Clubs
    - Fairly flat structure where you have lots of senior people at your disposal to help you and progress your deals

    Cons

    The below points aren't necessarily cons, but they are things to be aware of

    - Work / life balance can be a challenge due to the culture of excellence. But this is to be expected. Nothing great comes without sacrifice.
    - Leadership can be challenging to work for when you are not aligned with their views. Listen and learn and one day you will get the chance to comment when you are in their shoes.
    - It's a politically charged atmosphere and you have to be conscience of this (just like in life)
    - This isn't the place for you to challenge the data that made the company great. Follow the leading indicators and the methodology and success will come and you will enjoy working there. Don't and and you wont.

    Pros

    If you want to attain and hone a set of skills in order to perform at the highest possible level, AppDynamics is the place to be. It's like coming to work every day and training with the world leading olympic squad that win at every sport. Every function (sales, presales, marketing, recruitment, product, operations, legal etc.) everyone is at the top of their game. Every day you are there you grow, the earning potential is still huge. Cisco have incentivized their global sales force to sell AppDynamics who are now bringing a huge amount of opportunity to the AppDynamics team.

    Cons

    It's really hard work, but that's what being great takes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the already world class product, lead the App Intelligence market and continue to provide great sales plans to keep rewarding the hard work.
