    Pros

    I worked in this company for a while and I've seen people joining and leaving. Some of the leavers were a big loss (but hey, a company is not forever, like a wife), others weren't. Actually, those that quit quickly or were fired probably are responsible for all the amenities that you can read here about Appway (i.e. all the 1 star reviews). What else do you expect from someone that has been fired or that moved to... another company after 6 months because discovered that he was supposed to do mainly bugfixes? Also, everyone writes reviews as software engineer. But hey, there are more reviews than developers. There's something strange here :) The funny thing is that most of the leavers were also not hard workers. You work hard the whole day, arrive early in the office, do overtime, but then you also have to hear from someone that spend most of his time smoking and drinking coffee that everything is bad. Please, in this case consider a long vacation, moving to another working area (e.g. agricolture) or taking a psychologist. I think that the job is much better than most of the jobs you can land in Italy and Ticino. The worktime is flexible, the office is amazing, if you pay there is a parking area (not so cheap), you have a kitchen and daily fruit and coffee. I also have seen how people tried to solve some situations which caused people to be unhappy (not always succeeding). The product is evolving and you do not have to do only bugfixes: we release a main release a year, something has to be done.

    This stated, not everything is perfect. The code must be improved and the technologies we use must be updated with a severe urgency. Not everyone in the management sees this as a priority and just thing about cool thing we should do for the future. You can't transform a droid in the Death Star just by writing it into the 2020 plan. Change requires people and investment. Doesn't come for free. Rewarding is not... working at all and it is not related to the contribution of the person to the assigned goals.

    Ain't true that people are all the same. Consider cross department reviews. We have people that are pillars in the company and should be rewarded for this. Stay far away from any yes man: there are too many and they are too close to the CEO.

    Pros

    if you are an engineer, go there if you look for a serious environement for java and javascript enthusiasts. teams are flexible and you can choose to work on various aspects of the product, they try modern product management practice,they have an accessible top management, they really believe in what they do. this company has a strong product focus and a really cool product. offices are very good, modern and lots of... space.

    Kontras

    i can only complain on high level, like most companies that grow fast there are gap s in the communication but the management reacts and requests feedback and is not afraid of feedback, sometimes remote infrastructure is not good enough

    Rat an das Management

    put more attention to online communication infrastructure, keep the fantastic employee onboarding. loved to work for you :-) keep it up !

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei Appway gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    * CEO (Hanspeter), CTO (Oliver) , and new Heads of Services (Claudia) are nice people * The beginning will be nice as most people will be open minded and willing to help you

    Kontras

    * After the initial honeymoon period, you realize everyone only cares about their specific project * Very little vertical communication; leadership is given the middle management viewpoint and you never get an actual say * Children at leadership positions who seem to always miss the forest for the trees * Mistakes are seen as opportunities for middle management to strut their stuff and yell a lot...never as... growing opportunities. If you want to be talked down to, this is where you should be. * Get ready for nonstop escalation...forget being a team. The moment some parties perceives a slight, escalation.

    Rat an das Management

    It's shame honestly to rate Appway only 2 stars, because generally you do this with poorleadership at the top. Different here. CEO / CTO / Head of Services are all nice, empathetic, helpful leaders. The rot in this company comes from middle management and what is essentially a bunch of egotistical children running the show. You want to improve company morale, get real leaders who can see the overall... picture and who use mistakes as growing experiences, not as opportunities to flex an ego.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei Appway (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - Work-life balance (basically you can work half of the time or with half of your brain and nobody will notice/complain if you are in Chiasso). By the way, is this a real pro ?

    Kontras

    - Extremely weak leadership (CTO is basically absent). This has an impact on every level and there is no technical roadmap at all. - Technological stack is old and tech debt is huge (no concrete plan to tackle it) - Automated testing and focus on quality is completely out of their mentality. Manual testing (also for developers) is still an everyday activity. - A lot of unexperienced people (first working... experience) in particular product managers and teach leaders. - Very conservative mindset (innovation is a mirage)

    Rat an das Management

    - Hire experienced professionals especially in product management - Look for a real and seasoned CTO. - Stop promoting tech leaders just because of their seniority in the company. Seniority in the profession and personal inclination (not everybody is a people person) should count.
