    Pros

    Fast growing start-up and a pioneer in driving adoption of Cloud computing technology/solutions in the enterprise. This is a highly relevant space for the next decade or so, in these fast changing times. Awesome leadership and culture overall. Your voice is always valuable.

    Cons

    Hyper-growth causes stress on many fronts, and as long as you are able to cope with the ever changing environment and the challenges that come along, you would just enjoy every bit of it.

    Good and Bad

    I have been working at Appirio full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Bleeding edge opportunity to be a part of the industry's only Cloud Consultancy. Recommend joining for Work/Life Balance, Culture, Values and experience but don't stay more than 1-1.5 years...

    Cons

    Don't stay more than 1-1.5 years because the Comp & Benefits and Career Advancement opportunities are completely off the rails broken. Wish I could grow within Appirio but I can't. Absolutely zero opportunity to negotiate merit increases or upward mobility upon consistently demonstrating next level job performance. I have former peers at Deloitte who have advanced 3 levels to my 0. And the quality and variety of my career experiences in the Workday ecosystem is demonstrably superior to theirs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For folks who are consistently showing next level results, get serious about proactively engaging in Comp, Benefits and Career Advancement discussions or you will force your best people to look elsewhere. I started out billing at one of the lowest bill rates and now I'm billing at one of the highest bill rates - YET - my salary has only increased once via a 5% merit increase. Use one of those fancy Salesforce.com reports to figure out whose wages have stagnated compared to the value they are bringing in and make it right. I love working at Appirio but the self-deception erodes quickly when I consider what I could / should be making and the long term consequences of this deprivation to my family's quality of life.

    HR and Management should more frequently assess and adjust to ensure that there is equitable pay for performance, contribution and potential.

    I worked at Appirio

    Pros

    Very forward thinking and progressive company. Very efficient in on-boarding new employees. Completely bought into leading edge trends. The right type of personality can really thrive at Appirio.

    Cons

    Upper management is arrogant and this has a tenancy to adversely affect the decision making process. A culture of an elite club that everyone is supposed to be trying to join has been created and it can cause some moral issues.
