I worked at Apptio full-time (More than 8 years)
Great team, great customers, interesting problem space. Creating a category is honorable, hard work. Lots of room to have a positive impact on clients and company culture. High performers are rewarded, promoted, and recognized. This is a safe place to innovate, fail, revise, and try again.
De-complicating TBM is not easy. As a consequence, the number of teams & people required to service a customer often felt complex and sometimes cumbersome.
Advice to Management
Stay lean. Career advancement is not a participation sport - continue to be a meritocracy.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Apptio (Kirkland, WA) in October 2017.
Started off with a phone interview that was most likely geared to weed out the obviously non-qualified. The tech questions were simple and we spent most of the time talking about what I had been doing; then I had to opportunity to ask a lot of questions about the company. After that I was given a homework assignment to complete, which I did over the weekend.
