AppDynamics is a winner of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in 2019 award. Read what our employees shared about AppDynamics leadership, opportunities, and culture.

At AppDynamics, we don’t settle for the status quo. We challenge ourselves to do better every day – both for our customers and our employees. That’s why we’re incredibly honored and proud to be a winner of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in 2019 award.  

AppDynamics ranked 58th on the list of US companies with more than 1,000 employees and 20th on the list of UK companies with over 1,000 employees. At the time of this post, we have an average score of 4.7/5 stars and 470 reviews.

What’s extremely special about this accolade is that it is based entirely on the feedback our employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on Glassdoor.

“At AppDynamics there’s nothing more important than our people, and we’ve worked hard to create an environment that’s a great place for passionate people to come to work everyday,” said David Wadhwani, CEO, AppDynamics. “This award validates the culture we’ve built to foster a sense of belonging that drives engagement and leads to extraordinary impact and growth opportunities for all employees.”

AppDynamics is truly a great place to work, and I am excited every day to be working alongside so many positive and fun people. And while every company has areas they can improve on, I admire that AppDynamics always strives to be better and pushes for growth every day.

At AppDynamics, we pride ourselves on living our core values of being…

  • Better
  • Together
  • Transformative
  • Champions
  • Positive
  • Fun

It’s these values that have contributed to the amazing culture we have at AppDynamics. Our values impact everything we do and how we do it. And based on the feedback we’ve received on Glassdoor, it’s also clear that these values contributed to AppDynamics winning this amazing award.

Below are just a few words employees shared on Glassdoor that contributed toward the award. This makes us feel incredibly honored and proud:

“AppDynamics is a standalone business unit of Cisco. So you get the smaller teams and agility of a startup within AppD, but the employment benefits of the enterprise with Cisco ownership. Everyone was welcoming, and there is regular communications from the executives to all hands.”

“Startup culture still remains. Have met many energetic and talented people who always try to do the right thing for the company. People are really supportive and friendly. Very flexible work-from-home and work-remotely policy.”

“It’s amazing to see the impact we have on our customers. We elevate our users’ careers and we help drive incredible change in how their companies do business. Everyone here is obsessed with making our customers successful. It’s great to work at a company where my efforts can be directly traced to customer benefit.”

“Culture is absolutely one of the best reason to work here. Hard work is rewarded, and internal promotions happen very frequently. AppDynamics values fun and the unique energy everyone brings to the office. The perks are also amazing, the office favorite is the weekly massages! Catered lunch and a kitchen fully stocked with snacks and drinks help keep you fueled up during the day. Recently started an AppD bookclub to work on personal and professional development, it shows that AppD cares about you as a person and not just a company asset. Overall great company and atmosphere to work in with a great career path and the opportunity for quick promotions.”

A huge thank you goes out to all the AppDynamos who took the time to share their perspective on what it’s like to work here. We appreciate all the valuable feedback as it only helps us improve.
