I was grateful that Apptricity gave me an opportunity to work with them.The interview process was very positive. I was excited at first for what I thought would be a great experience.
However, once I started working there it was not as fulfilling as I was expecting. There was no new hire orientation. As a newly hired employee it was difficult to get to know anyone and I had to figure things out on my own. There are lots of cubicles and people tend to stay to themselves. There are some nice people at Apptricity, but the tone of some of the Managers and other Developers was very blunt and condescending. There was a high employee turn over. Instead of feeling like you can grow and develop, if you struggled to understand something or had a question you would be talked to like you were an idiot. Instead of feeling like you have support you spend time questioning yourself.
The computers and devices used for programming were old and your request for any kind of upgrade or additional needed equipment would be overlooked. The wireless network was often down or slow so it was difficult to test or demo your work.
They are trying to improve things by having more company events and providing fresh fruit in the mornings. They have also made some changes in management. It might be getting better but I was never that happy. Overall, it was disappointing.
