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

    Pros

    - A really good team of people (team feel, always willing to support and help each other, learning together) - Support from Upper Management - Promotion from within - Solid compensation & benefits - A lot of additional offerings like team outings, food in the office, and regular trivia in the office

    Cons

    - Need to work from the office (which I don't think is really bad as AppNeta is trying to build out a culture)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - since I've come to AppNeta not only have I grown professionally but the company has as well! It's been awesome to be part of a growing organization with clear direction as well as passion!

    Pros

    Great opportunity for any sales rep that is confident in their ability to break into new accounts. They are fair and pay very well for those unique individuals who earn their success. If you can't crack into new accounts and close business, then this is not the place for you. If you can, then you will make a ton of money and have exposure to the highest level of the company. If you're all in, the CEO himself... will help you in any way possible- even down to breaking down accounts with you in off hours, giving career advice, I wouldn't even be surprised if he was willing to make some cold calls!

    Cons

    If you are looking for a cushy sales job where you get a ton of leads and are happy coasting, you will hate it here.

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

    Pros

    Like many start-up's AppNeta had some growing pains, I've read the posts from 2012-2014 and understand not everyone agreed with decisions that were made. Regardless, that is in the past and before my time. Currently AppNeta is making a name for themselves in the APM space and growing rapidly at the same time. Personal growth and leadership are the biggest reasons people should want to join this organization. ... I've never seen a company that will promote from within so quickly. This is something promised to most new hires but here it actually happens. Secondly is the leadership of the executive team. Through the struggles of what it has taken to get to where AppNeta is today the leaders of the organization have a clear vision of where we are headed. The CEO and CMO have collaborated and put together a plan for 2016 that will really put this company on the map. The future looks bright!

    Cons

    My first few weeks at AppNeta were concerning because there were a lot of changes but the dust has settled. Additionally, this isn't particularly a con but it is an inside sales organization with a lot of out-bound activity, if that is not what you are looking for then this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pedal to the metal and don't look back. Continue to improve the product and the leadership moving forward.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you want to work hard and make serious cash. You're given lots of freedom to succeed (and lots of rope to hang yourself if try to cowboy it and go it alone...).

    Cons

    Being a startup, there is a lot of change in the go to market approach. AppNeta has more change than most, but the change is driven out desire to make people successful. Not a place to work if you expect to get a "cookie cutter" approach. You'll need to self-motivated and be prepared to figure things out on the fly.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better. Too many of the sales team members don't take the opportunity seriously or approach the job with professionalism. It's hard to sell (regardless of how strong the product is and AppNeta's product is actually a winner) and it is even tougher when you have to sit next to people who expect to have everything handed to them and/or complain about their peers or management when the real answer to their lack... of success is looking back at them in the bathroom mirror each morning. This isn't just for management - it's for all sales team members too. Don't tolerate under-performers. They bring the whole team down with them. AppNeta is in a hot market with a hot product, so why tolerate sub-par peers?

    I worked at AppNeta full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gaining the knowledge that if these incompetent and delusional people can be executives, then there is no doubt I will one day get there myself.

    Cons

    Where to begin: don’t let the fact that Bain invested $16 million in this company or that SolarWinds, another Bain company, the company they were supposedly competing against and whose product they constantly trashed on, also invested in them fool you- there is a reason why no new investors have come on board. Zero continuity within the organization. Every department does things their own way, since management... has no set processes in place. This is a major reason why the company is losing money and why customers routinely churn. If you have a pulse, you will get hired. Recent college grads make up the majority of the sales floor. Most of them are only there for a paycheck, and don’t put in any real work. This, combined with NO training and NO guidance by management = the company not hitting its number. This should not be happening, especially having technology that is actually pretty good. They frown upon you having an opinion. It’s called a “start up”, but if you have an opinion of your own and express any sort of dissatisfaction to the wrong person, you will get ratted on. Two grown men cannot have a conversation regarding major changes that were taking place without one of them getting over sensitive about the truth and crying about it to the VP. If you are a robot with no sense of self worth, this is the place for you. Marketing is comprised of a handful of rich and spoiled 20 somethings who come in after 10, leave at 4 and take an hour and a half lunch break. Seeing them at their desk is a rarity, and when they are they spend their time either on Facebook or not distributing the “leads” that come in through 3rd, 4th, and 10th party websites who have no idea AppNeta exists. Commissions are not always paid on time, and management will constantly try to find ways NOT to pay them in full. As it turns out, the smartest people at AppNeta are the several who quit after a week because, in their words, “this place sucks”. Extremely high turnover on all levels, especially in sales. They place no value on employees who actually care and are willing to put the work in. I challenge anyone who interviews there to bring any of these things up. They will either A. Try to get around the topic, or B. Say that the opinions of one person do not reflect the company. The truth is these are the feelings of both current and former employees. If you need further proof, look at any one of the sales people in the eye- they will remind you of a neglected dog from an ASPCA commercial. Everyone is miserable, but they stay because A. “it’s a paycheck”, or B. they hope things will get better.
