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

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

    AppDynamics is in an accelerated growth stage, which makes coming to work very exciting. Everyone is at the top of their game and are also very committed to the success of the company.

    Not as much freedom with increased procedures and policies.
