Great product, Ruthless culture
Director, Strategic Alliances (Former Employee) –  San Mateo, CAAugust 15, 2018
The company was driven by executives that will do anything to cash out. Management turnover is higher than any place I have ever worked and organization structure is very loose and fluid.

Not a well run company
Professional Service Delivery (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAAugust 3, 2018
Overall the product is solid but the leadership and management of the company is not very good. Lots of hiring binges and then lay offs. Not a well run company that may be on its way down.

Not good work culture.
Applications Specialist (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CAJuly 31, 2018
C-level staff do not care about the people who drive the business.

Typical day consisted of people treating people like bad.

No balance. No respect. Very little appreciation.
Pros
not much
Cons
People don't take the time to care for each other.

Worst Workplace
Remote - Cloud Platform Architect (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 20, 2018
Endless numbers of useless meetings. Management is always on fire control mode. For a company that tis a decade old, process is often pushed aside in favor of rush it out mentality.

Fast Paced, Challenging, But Difficult to Advance
Sales Operations (Current Employee) –  San Mateo, CAApril 30, 2018
I love the quick pace, the ambiguity and the challenge of a rapidly growing company. I thrive in the gray and love to put processes in place to make it black and white. Apttus was great for that.

However, when I wanted to advance there was active back-stabbing, lies and blocking of my career advancement.

Growing Pains
Director of Product Management (Current Employee) –  San Mateo, CAJune 1, 2017
Senior leadership and Sales continually over promise to customers which leads to constant escalation and dysfunctional product development.

Leadership needs to back up engineering with long promised resourcing if they want to keep their talent and deliver quality products. They also need to learn how to set realistic customer expectations.

There are opportunities to be creative and some very smart people but expect to be overworked and unsupported.
Pros
Opportunity to be creative, subsidized lunches
Cons
Schizophrenic leadership, No 401K matching

Don't
Engagement Manager, Professional Services (Former Employee) –  San Mateo, CAMarch 7, 2017
Worked in professional services and in my opinion you are set up to fail with unrealistic deals to implement. Budget for implementation does not equate to reality to deliver. Product wasn't all it was sold to be and it seemed like a shell game to get the company public.
Pros
None
Cons
management culture

All about the bottom number and going public
Senior Sales Engineer (Current Employee) –  CAMarch 1, 2017
All Apttus cares about is going public. They will sacrifice great employees. Upper management is clueless about the product and who truly matters. They need to focus on there customers more, and take care of there employees.
Pros
competitive pay
Cons
no 401k match, bad management, lack of team

Exciting environment.
Video Producer (Current Employee) –  San Mateo, CAJanuary 21, 2017
Being on the verge of an IPO makes for a very exciting environment. People are very invested in the success of the company and work hard. Day to day life is good. Management gives a lot of ownership to the individuals.

challenging and always keeping you on your toes
Commissions Accountant (Former Employee) –  San Mateo, CAOctober 20, 2016
A typical day at work would start off by checking emails and making sure to attend to immediate concerns. I learned from management to be well rounded and to learn how to do everything. The hardest part of my job was closing every month. The demand of constantly making sure people were understanding what they were being paid and when. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with different people in the company and being able to help them get paid.
Pros
great benefits, great co- workers, great innovative product
Cons
long hours, management

Half a unicorn with a narcissist jockey.
Business Development (Former Employee) –  San Mateo, CAAugust 31, 2016
Apttus is the real life version of a startup that you would expect to see on an episode of Silicon Valley. The jockey of this horned donkey is a narcissist CEO (in title only) who views the employee population as girls in a pickup bar. The executive team is known in the Valley as the Junior Varsity of technology. Why is any of this relevant? This is real life folks. I worked there for nearly 2 years in a BD management role and examples like this has been instrumental in creating a toxic and unhealthy company culture. Unfortunately, HR is useless except in providing you with your final check which cant come soon enough for you or Apttus. A closely held secret is that Apttus now walks out groups of employees every Friday as a way to avoid a formal and public layoff.
In respect to the company outlook, the IPO window which was open a year ago has now closed following SFDC acquiring Steelbrick. The sword of investor sentiment cut this unicorn in half following this news. After all, why would you want to own equity in a company that only works on the platform of a company that you now compete against!?!? Don’t get fooled by the Apttus spin that Steelbrick isn’t in Enterprise. As someone involved in BD, i have seen them already move up the food chain. The move to replace the former inept and ineffective CFO (picture a third brother in Dumb and Dumber) with an experienced CFO was a good move. Unfortunately, she was dealt a horrible hand so talk of an IPO is really just a way to better position the company for sale. Does anyone believe that this market would respond positively
  more... to an Apttus IPO?? I wonder if Purina or Alpo is interested in buying this former unicorn. It might make good dog food.  less
Pros
Working there is full of laughs and tears like a good hollywood movie.
Cons
Impossible to list in one place

Downward Spiral
Engagement Manager (Current Employee) –  San Mateo, CAAugust 31, 2016
Since Salesforce acquired competitor Apttus is in a downward spiral. Pipeline is drying up. Project implementations are challenged and of poor quality.
