Current Employee - Corporate Recruiter

I have been working at Appen full-time for less than a year

Pros

LOVE the sense of community, collaboration, potential for growth. Great team members. I feel Appen values you, rather than treating you as a disposable addition to the team. We really care about... diversity, collaboration and responsible leadership. Good social causes in play-- really looking to see our social impact increase over the next year! Great company wide communication - very transparent in times of COV19. Weekly calls with the CEO + global team. Daily calls with my team. Impactful work- not an ant in the ant hill. Love working from home!

Cons

Let's be leaders in the name of AI/ML and sustainability! If AI is the future, let's lead with a sustainable torch!

Advice to Management

Keep up the social causes and vision centered around collaboration and positive community impact! Great work life balance.
