    I have been working at Appway full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I worked in this company for a while and I've seen people joining and leaving. Some of the leavers were a big loss (but hey, a company is not forever, like a wife), others weren't. Actually, those that quit quickly or were fired probably are responsible for all the amenities that you can read here about Appway (i.e. all the 1 star reviews). What else do you expect from someone that has been fired or that moved to another...

    Cons

    This stated, not everything is perfect. The code must be improved and the technologies we use must be updated with a severe urgency. Not everyone in the management sees this as a priority and just thing about cool thing we should do for the future. You can't transform a droid in the Death Star just by writing it into the 2020 plan. Change requires people and investment. Doesn't come for free. Rewarding is not working...

    Advice to Management

    Ain't true that people are all the same. Consider cross department reviews. We have people that are pillars in the company and should be rewarded for this. Stay far away from any yes man: there are too many and they are too close to the CEO.

    Pros

    if you are an engineer, go there if you look for a serious environement for java and javascript enthusiasts. teams are flexible and you can choose to work on various aspects of the product, they try modern product management practice,they have an accessible top management, they really believe in what they do. this company has a strong product focus and a really cool product. offices are very good, modern and lots of space.

    Cons

    i can only complain on high level, like most companies that grow fast there are gap s in the communication but the management reacts and requests feedback and is not afraid of feedback, sometimes remote infrastructure is not good enough

    Advice to Management

    put more attention to online communication infrastructure, keep the fantastic employee onboarding. loved to work for you :-) keep it up !

    I have been working at Appway full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    One of the most interesting software companies to work for in Switzerland: founder led and owned, international, gearing up for the next leap of growth Highly motivated and talented people to work with, high pace but flexible work environment Possibility to grow in many different directions and with promotions based on work delivered, equal chances for men and women

    Cons

    Change is a constant and drive to improve never stops. Can be tiring and needs an open mind at all times, this is not for everybody. Same for the expectations and pace demanded of people.

    Advice to Management

    A bolder focus on the vision and even more support for learning and development

    Pros

    Nice office and decent work-life balance since managers are so incompetent they cannot organize the flow of work to keep you busy. (but be prepared to work on useless stuff).

    Cons

    There is no learning opportunity at all, the technologies are creepy, old and badly implemented. Manager at every level do not care about people and do not have enough experience to lead the teams. HR is incapable to retain people and an inverse selection process is making the best leave and the old, incompetent developers/manager stay. In other words this is the worst choice you could make as an engineer, this company...

    I have been working at Appway full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Initially I thought the flexibility, but now I'm fed up of that too

    Cons

    The CEO of this company has a twisted vision of reality: he wants to sell to other IT companies their products, implying that they somehow know better than the other IT companies. The funny thing is that Appway is beyond industry standards in every aspect. The codebase has been written by coding school dropouts and would need heavy refactoring/rewriting but nobody wants to take that responsibility. The quality is...

    Advice to Management

    Stop trusting the old developers, they are the real problem, they know very little about technology and about how to build a solid software product.

    I worked at Appway full-time

    Pros

    Some good learnings about how not to run a company which you could use for your future career.

    Cons

    A narcissistic CEO and a clownish CTO who only care about themselves: as a consequence everybody is just a number to them. Meritocracy is a completely alien concept to the organisation: you'll be promoted only if you become their pet, results don't matter. This has created the "little kingdom of incompetence": a layer of untalented, abusive and arrogant middle managers who have lost any interest for people and only...

    The problems and the awful culture will require years to fix, this will probably pass to history as one of the most horrible company ever.
