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

Pros

You can work from home
Travel is a Minimual

Cons

You have no control over getting assigned or your assignments and if you are not assigned you get penalized for low utilization

IT support functions (i.e. change enablement) doe not receive the same recognition as the IT strategy and implementation functions

Change enablement/Management function is a joke! Methodology is adhoc at best and the leadership (Management and Directors) are untrained- they often cut and paste presentations and tools from previous projects.

You have very little or no involvement in the kickoff of projects- due to Managers and Sr manager trying to accumulate utilization hours- However, you are responsible to deliver on objectives and promises made that often do not aligned with clients needs.

The culture is a Dictatorship (Chris Barbin) and leaves no room for error and discipline is inconsistent. Everyone is scared they will lose their job. People are often throwing each other under the bus to save their own neck. I have personally witness situations where clients requested individuals (IT) removed from a project and the individual was move to another project and the same thing happened to an individual (IT- support Change Management) and they are let go (off with their head).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do what is right not just what will make you Money or make you look good!

Investigate a situation don't just take one persons word before you act!

    I worked at Appirio full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Appirio is led by and stocked full of ridiculously smart people. That makes for a fun work environment where people push each other to excel well beyond what a typical company could muster. If you like working with the best and brightest, this is the right place!

    Cons

    It's hard to find a con with Appirio. During my 4 years there, the only thing I had to complain about was no corporate education reimbursement program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the standards high even with the rapid growth.
