    Pros

    - Fast paced tech-centric organization presents an excellent opportunity to diversify technical skill set. - International client base results in interesting support challenges to solve. - Healthy amount of employee success recognition by all levels of management.

    Cons

    - Constantly evolving technology sector and competition means the company will require laser-sharp focus to evolve the core product and keep it relevant. - Small range of product offerings may result in difficulty retaining talent as they seek out new areas to push their careers forward.

    Thanks for sharing your feedback. Racism is a strong word and one that has no connection to the widely diverse culture at AppNeta. If you did ever actually work here (or if you still do...), I'd personally appreciate hearing from you directly/privately to understand more. Our ~50+ promotions/advancements (which are celebrated every month in our "all hands" meetings) in the last 24 months from a multi-cultural team is so far out of line from your review that I wonder if you've confused us with another firm?

    Pros

    The entire management team here just gets it. The culture is like a startup and supportive like a family.

    Cons

    Lots of legacy code to deal with; Eventually everything is legacy code though ,so it's best to embrace it and continue to work on making things better where we can get the most value - and we are constantly improving that space.

    Full Stack Developer in Vancouver, BC

    I worked at AppNeta for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to be influential

    Cons

    Pay (as an intern at least) wasn't great

    AppNeta Response

    August 18, 2018CEO

    Thank you for making time to share your feedback. Accountability is a key theme to both performance and trust, which together form two of our three core pillars of transparency, performance, and trust. As an individual contributor to any team effort, when you truly take ownership of something, you are immediately influential. Not only with respect to your current department/project/goal, but across the entire organization. We believe this is vital regardless if you're a FTE or just starting out your career as an intern. Regarding pay, we believe we pay above market because we're extremely selective in all of our hiring decisions and pay employees accordingly. But it's always worthwhile to perform a market check and we will.
