    I worked at AppFolio as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very patient and helpful mentors, you will learn a lot. Appfolio can help you build up all the development skills quickly. The office uses open-ended design (just like Facebook), it's easy to ask for help; and all the other employees are very willing to help you.

    People here are passionate and with a sense of humor, we are always laughing around.

    Tons of snacks and drinks and fruits in the kitchen. You will never get hungry at work.

    Cons

    The salary is about average. Considering the light work load, it's decent enough.
    Goleta and Santa Barbara is a boring place, you need to drive 2 hours to reach LA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in sales and marketing. Consider raising the salary to attract more smart people.

    Pros

    A fun and youthful culture. The company is growing quickly and offers a lot of room for employee growth. They promote from within the Company, which is awesome! Hard working, friendly and smart co-workers that continue to raise the bar and encourage me to push myself. A lot of opportunities to learn and develop skills. Hard work is noticed and rewarded. Can't say enough about how much I love working for this Company!

    Cons

    Busy days. The days fly by because there is always a lot to get done. Fast paced and exciting!

    Pros

    If you are motivated to get experience and have opportunity for advancement, Appfolio is a great place to work at. The company is always growing looking to promote talent from within. They offer great training and a great opportunity to get hands on experience doing something that matters. To top if off, the senior leadership has created a great company atmosphere and set the company up to be very successful long term.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say. Appfolio is a fast pace and growth minded company. If you do not mind showing up to work and giving your best, there are no cons. However if you are looking for a clock in/out job allowing you to coast, its not the place for you. The company rewards hard work and talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere is young and vibrant, with a fun work life balance. The headquarters in Santa Barbara has fun break room activities including ping pong, Foosball, and daily exercise classes. In addition AppFolio offers a fully stocked kitchen with food and beverages. This is a hard working environment and is focused on growing into a multi million dollar company, but where people work hard the also play hard.

    Cons

    There is not much room for advancement within the services, and the implementation sectors. Unless you are an Engineer your career growth goals may go unrecognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide opportunities for growth within the company so that your talented workforce can continue to grow with the company, and provide value to the organization for the long term. Also focus more on training, and development to build skills across departments.

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

    Pros

    Small, autonomous teams work closely with customers to release new features rapidly. Sustainable pace with excellent work/life balance. Great support for individuals and teams. Focus on continual improvement. Good opportunities for career growth as the company grows, both on technical and leadership tracks.

    Cons

    Company is growing rapidly, so there are constantly new people to bring up to speed. The number of paid holidays is a bit low. It is challenging to keep code quality high while constantly adding new people and producing such a high volume of new products and features.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the sustainable balance of growth vs profits. Continue to invest heavily in engineering.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
