Software Developer (Former Employee), Atlanta – May 27, 2015
Pros: You can get away with doing nothing for a long time.
Cons: Insecurity, no advancement opportunities, the work isn't challenging, and the culture is bad
I was a developer there for just under 2 years. The entire time I was there the majority of developers were looking for other work and were completely miserable working on the products that Aptean had – more... recently acquired. Turnover rates are high because the majority of the work is SE which is just glorified customer support. Which would be fine for entry level work if anyone knew anything about the products. Everyone that knew anything about Pivotal has been let go so that SE team is just guessing. Ross SE is just the remnants of the China branch that didn't get laid off. Layoffs happen every quarter, the company will under perform in sales, some higher ups will get fired, a new one will come in and change things up to fix the company, repeat. Most of the development is going to India, those remaining in the Atlanta office are on a short timeline. – less
Software Developer / Aptean (Current Employee), Sandy Springs, GA – February 25, 2015
Much of my job was maintenance oriented with respect to databases and development servers, but I also got to do some scripting and automation to improve the processes for everyone. I learned about automated – more... building & deploying, managing Windows Servers, VM machines, and SQL Server machines.
I've enjoyed my time there and am sad that I have to be leaving my friends and colleagues after such a brief time. – less
Fun workplace with ping pang table and foosball table
Senior Automation Quality Assurance (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – February 7, 2015
Most of the co-works are nice and polite. But this is not a company that will take good care of it's employees. And the company's condition is getting worse and worse. More than 50% of the employees are laid off.
Solutions Consultant (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – December 15, 2014
Pros: large customer base, several loyal customers, lot of resources
Cons: strategy changes, some lack of communication from top down.
A typical day at Aptean for me includes continuous learning and practice in the software, Based upon the need, I will be on a number of calls and web-based demos on any given day.
Overall, it has been – more... a good experience. Sales management is responsive and "nearby." Recent changes have stirred things up in the company and the environment has become somewhat less enjoyable to work in.
The hardest part has been dealing with constant changes in company strategy. Not all have been bad, but they make it hard to speak with customers. – less

Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta, Ga. – February 22, 2014
Coworkers were great, but management still hasn't provided a clear vision or set of expectations throughout the organization. There is no real performance management; people are replaced at the drop of a hat based on the whims of senior leadership.
Aptean Asia - Sales Manager (Former Employee), China – September 6, 2013
Pros: 5 days work
I enjoy really much to work as a Sales Manager when closed 1 or 2M deal size or break quota. It made me feel high from the job satisfaction and really feel good with the USA head office Sales & Marketing team support.
Anonymous Ex-employee (Former Employee), Bangalore – March 23, 2013
Until the merger it was one of the best companies to work for. Employee benefits were great and the workplace was amazing. Customers were happy & ever increasing and product focus was great. But ever since – more... its APTEAN its a company with no vision, zero transparency, integrity(is no more in their dictionary) and has nothing to offer in the long run for both employees and customers(no proper vision or road map). Job security is negative and their project management sucks.Customers and employees are screwed because of their "changes" and nobody cares. A great company which was screwed because it was sold to a rich scrap dealer – less
Going in right direction after merger and change.....
Sales Exec (Current Employee), Atlanta – March 16, 2013
Pros: benefits begin on day 1 of ft employment
Cons: some departments understaffed, but that is changing too.
New management has made many positive changes. Culture and morale are very good and improving every day. Coworkers are energetic and you really feel like you are making a contribution and difference. Results are very encouraging.
