    Good working environment, smart people and a lot of growth potential for the company. Interesting technology and challenging problems, with quite a few customers from the Fortune 100.

    There is still room for improvement

      I worked at AppNeta full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great people to work with and management goes to great lengths to accommodate and support its staff. The company didn't achieve all that it aspired to but it certainly tried hard and kept the motivation high without pushing engineering staff beyond what they could sustain.

      Cons

      The company faces the usual challenges of a small and fast-growing technology company. In hindsight perhaps it should have better predicted the future of its market but that's is easier said than done.

        Pros

        AppNeta is a fantastic company to work for. The future for the company looks pretty bright too. Lots of exciting sales to very common names. The people I work with are above all the best part about AppNeta. Smart developers solving tough problems. So many people are truly interested in doing things well. Building software the right way using the latest technologies and processes - definitely keeping things modern. ...

        Cons

        There are a lot of irons in the fire which makes priority management challenging. There is so much that we want and need to do. That said, all of these irons are in progressing a few key products. We are still adapting and learning with our development processes but they are pretty good and getting better.

        I have been working at AppNeta for more than a year

        Pros

        Awesome team of friendly people, the nicest I have ever worked with. The culture is very open and communicative and there are more and more events each month like pizza lunches, beer socials, optional employee-led learning seminars and tons of other stuff.

        Cons

        Nothing of note, the company is growing fast and that means lots of new faces all the time and shifting policy but the company appears very committed to their team and making them happy and comfortable at work.

        Advice to Management

        Keep listening to your team and keep doing what you're doing!

        Pros

        - low turnover rate - ability to work from home - location- downtown near the sky train - interesting product

        Cons

        - there are no careers, just jobs - there is absolutely no growth. You get what you negotiated at the beginning for as long as you're there regardless of how hard you work. Don't work over-time with the hope to grow your title. - wrong software life cycle. QA are told not to publicly report critical bugs to save their manager's job! - people who are clueless want to tell you how to do your job - heavily political...

        Advice to Management

        I can only give advice to the top management not the developers' manager. Please get rid of the unqualified managers. Make sure you hire managers who are certified engineers with real industry experience. Also, please listen to your employees before they decide to leave. You must get HR involved. I cannot possibly communicate my problems to my manager as he is the problem himself. I truly wish that things get better.

          I have been working at AppNeta

          Pros

          The software engineering team in Vancouver has very low turnover. That speaks volumes to the established culture, work/life balance, and the rewarding challenges of working with progressive and complicated technologies. Can't speak much about the Sales team which is based in Boston, since I'm in Vancouver, but I'd take the negative reviews of those who didn't make it with a grain of salt. There are many Sales people...

          Cons

          The office has been growing fast, and the floor is full to capacity. Another floor in the same building has been acquired recently so that should alleviate the congestion.

          Pros

          cool technology, friendly environment, convenient location

          Cons

          echo previous comments: release cycle too short, poor product quality, hire too many coops to "save money" (not sure if it really saves money in the long run), top management is purely money oriented and tries to save development cost as much as possible
