    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Apttus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - most mature quote-to-cash suite in the market - have the right vision and going in the right direction - great CLM product, CPQ best in market - competition cannot come close to product parity especially with complex needs in enterprise

    Cons

    - typical startup challenges - growth, scale, chaos etc - founders are not good mgrs, company is now too big for them to manage, they need to move on and hire good operational people to take over and drive the company forward - too much mediocrity in talent for a company of this size, need to do better to retain good talent

    Advice to Management

    - hire a solid COO and understand that the company is too big for the founders to run with the control they like to have - only promote and hire based on ability instead of seniority, politics or favoritism - communicate better and more often

    Pros

    Apttus has good industry-leading products, people.

    Cons

    No support from the top management or Product team, Lacks overall strategy and company vision. No proper employee respect and remuneration.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a top-heavy organization, focus over on the ground employees taking daily challenges who are customer facing and solving day to day problems and challenges.
