The company is doing well, but they have many broken processes and aren't looking to fix them. People don't seem to be valued; the less experience you have, the better.

AppDynamics is a great place to work and grow. I started as a contractor and was promoted to supervisor after a few changes in management post acquisition.

Company is filled with politics and inexperienced management. Their product is lacking and they are not making it better. People are nice, but the management is terrible.

To this day AppDynamics remains as the best job I ever had. I joined when the company was still private, and it was my dream job at the time.

Post acquisition, the company still managed to retain most of its culture, but it slowly started to erode. The company had grand ambitions, but was kneedcapped by Cisco's hand. I didn't really see the acquisition as a negative, unlike some others members of my team, and I knew that the company would thrive under the Cisco umbrella.


Ultimately, mixed messaging and lack of transparency from upper management turned me sour over time. However, I would absolutely consider returning to AppD, but only if I could find my place on a team whose objectives I can truly align with.

Solid company with good technology. Very relevant market for large organizations. Good corporate culture overall and slowly becoming part of the Cisco world.

I have been with AppD for over 3 years and overall I would say I have had an overall positive experience. The job definitely changed significantly since the acquisition by Cisco and I think things have gotten significantly more political and we have lost a lot of our 'pre-IPO' culture as we are getting completely aligned with Cisco. I still think we sell a great product and provide a ton of value to customers - hence if you aren't looking for a startup feel, I think it is a great place right now.

A lot of time spent on self-promoting meeting
Not much else to say about this. Just trying to get to the required number of characters. Seems like I need to write a whole novel

Director did not take advice for people who worked for him. People were only given orders, sometimes releases were driven by one Customer who needed a fix not based on weather other customers would be affected

Great company to work in 2012 - 2015, with great product and vision. After 2015, with the change in top management focus shifted. It became a lot competitive as the main drive was to get the company to IPO. After acquisition by Cisco, the original founder/CEO left and started another startup.
Pros
Great product
Cons
lots of politics and cut throat competition
