      Best Place to work

      Pros

      - Market Leader in APM domain - Best in the class engineering team - Amazing work culture - Employee friendly company and the management team in Bangalore is just awesome - Though AppDynamics was acquired by Cisco, we still operate independently. - The biggest advantage of working in AppDynamics is that - you get to work in a startup environment and fall under the Cisco umbrella for all the employee benefits, which are world class. - Glossy new office in addition to all of the above makes it one of the best places to work in Bangalore

      Cons

      Nothing much, still trying to identify one

      Thank you for reviewing AppDynamics – and it’s great to hear from one of our employees based out of our Bangalore office. We couldn’t agree more with your comments about our best-in-class employees, amazing work culture and the perks of working as a start-up with the backing of Cisco. We’re very excited about the opening of the new office in Bangalore. Thanks for being part of our team!

      Pros

      I have been working with AppD for around 3 months now. - Company culture is good. - Great Learning opportunities as the company grows - Quality work in Bangalore office as well. A company with offices across countries generally tends to have this problem where one of the location might be getting redundant work, but it is not the case with AppDynamics.

      Cons

      Can't think of any for the moment.

      Thank you for taking the time to review the company, we do believe that we are on the way to be one of the top software companies out there! With exponential growth, there will be a fast-paced environment and some growing pains, but we try to have management help our employees find more efficient ways to do things!

      11 Oct 2021 - Enterprise Sales in Darwin

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great benefits, Cisco is a great employer - Great SEs, very switched on - Solid sales process and emphasis on value selling - Fantastic product when customers use it well and it can be implemented properly - Great lifework balance - If you are new to tech and sales, good place to learn your craft - AppDynamics is well respected in the market as a sales organisation (historically)

      Cons

      The APM glory days are done. AppDynamics is now 80% transitioned into Cisco and not much innovation for years now, all the focus on integration. Sales volume is OK but the competition is now ahead on many technical fronts. The segment as a whole is very tough - doesn't matter who you work for. Recently introduced a significant increase in comp plan with no further resources or real justification, all bets. Leaders in US are good people but just stand ins, the original execs left 3 years ago. Feels quite rudderless. Never hear from the GM and the CRO is new to sales. A lot of people getting promoted by default due to attrition. A very complex product to try and sell, a lot can go wrong in pre-sales process which causes a lot of frustration in the sales teams. Have gone 100% channel but the channel is very underdone and slow to get going. Most of it is just transactional, partners not driving many deals if any yet. Channel team good guys but seem to lack the right resources. Sales are still driving opportunity creation through to close. Locally we are celebrating a lot of mediocrity and enforcing the wrong message. A lot of participation awards and even cult-like behaviour. Many folks hit their numbers through freebies with Cisco, with very little follow through but management look the other way because it's retiring quota. Not many large complex deals being done anymore. Reps taking the easy route because direct selling poses so many challenges, including demand. Management want to get back to 'real' selling but won't provide what's needed to be successful, product is lagging & not enough excitement around it. Sales remuneration is below the market average now for SaaS. This is largely because of Cisco. They are struggling to compete with the huge OTEs being thrown around by startups and hyper growth organizations. Cisco doesn't understand this world and won't try and compete with it.

      Pros

      AppDynamics combines the best features of a startup (vibrant, exciting work as an industry leader) and an enterprise corporation (it's an independently-functioning subsidiary of Cisco).

      Cons

      Right now there's been some staff turnover, but everyone I've talked to from outside the company says everyone in the Bay Area is having the same problem at the moment.

      Pros

      Amazing benefits and pay through cisco Friendly colleagues and boss Motivated and excellent team

      Cons

      AppDynamics is currently revolutionizing the way it creates and analyzes data for customers. It is very exciting, but sometimes can leave teams a little confused on what thier priorities should be, they could change after a quarter to meet fast changing buisness needs.

      Pros

      AppDynamics has some of the best people I've worked with. The Field Reps, which in other companies just throw SEs in to meetings, instead do a lot of prep work and bring true value to the process. I also love my boss, who takes care of us as well as leading the group into new areas.

      Cons

      Interesting being part of Cisco, where the majority of the employees don't really understand software.

      Pros

      If you are someone who’s sick and tired of same old corporate politics and selling whatever to whoever however. If you are someone who aspire to be the best at your craft and want to learn a scientifically proven sales process and be part of a hyper-performance culture, you will love it! AppDynamics will change your life; you will learn , earn and grow.. in that order!

      Cons

      If you are happy where you are, don’t like to take big challenges and don’t like to be challenged for your own good, you may not like it!

      Cisco's ever growing bureaucracy

      Pros

      Good and friendly co workers Opportunities to get real hands-on experience with challenging projects and task Great work-life balance (more life vs work)

      Cons

      No pay, promotions or merit increases Unending creep of Cisco bureaucracy. For a few years post-acq. Cisco was just a minor rare nuisance. Now, nearly half your meetings are with @cisco folks requiring or demanding more bureaucracy, more rules, more regulations, more compliance, governance, more change. If you were to ban all @cisco from contacting @appdynamics folks the productivity at AppD would skyrocket.
