I have been working at Appian full-time for less than a year

Pros

Alot of opportunities, maybe too many? Hahaha. There is a lot to be done here, and smart hard-working people do it.

Cons

There is only one way: The Hard Way. You cannot just go from 9 to 5 everyday and expect to get things done, and you are told this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They are doing the right thing in recruiting heavily, lets hope everything works out.

    I worked at Appian full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * There are some really good engineers, from which you can learn, have smart interactions, and produce something good.
    * You can make some good friendships, since the group is small and, for good or bad, you're going to spend a lot of time in the office together.

    Cons

    * Sadly not most of the people is top notch, although considering the company size and the area, the company is really lucky to have the good engineers they have.
    * No real growth after certain level is reached. Everybody starts becoming a director or VP, which is starting to become a joke.
    * Engineering is very undervalued, since in the eyes of the execs (even if they don't accept it), it doesn't produce money (like professional services does).
    * CEO holds back the company because of fears, either founded or not, of loosing control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value engineering since the company's lofty goals will only be achieved through it.
