    I have been working at Appirio full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The open and transparent culture where teams collaborate and work together to produce amazing work for both our internal teams and our customers is what keeps me motivated everyday. Flexibility is a huge plus. We work from anywhere and from any device. Our cloud-based tools and flexible work arrangements truly provide a great work experience.

    Cons

    Global growth and managing transitions is never easy and I would say this is NOT a con but rather a time in our existence that requires extra effort and commitment. If you thrive in these types of environments you will succeed, if not, it will be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the culture that started Appirio 10+ years ago. Stay focused on the strategy, connect with the people on a regular basis and embrace the brand ambassadors around you to carry the torch forward!

    Pros

    The people: lots of smart people from all over the world. The culture: everyone is so supportive and genuinely interested in knowing you as a fellow Appirian.
    The benefits: Great benefits all around.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Everyone I’ve encountered has been great. Lots of opportunities to learn and collaborate with employees all around the org.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. I was previously at a company with a petty, competitive, and overall unsupportive culture, so I am just so thankful be at Appirio- a company where my ideas aren’t silly and I am treated like I have a voice. I’m now a part of a wonderful team comprised of some of the smartest people I’ve ever met. Thank you for trusting your employees to be their amazing selves.

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

    Pros

    Ability to work from home and excellent tech equipment. Reimbursement of phone and internet was nice.

    Cons

    Micro-management: you shouldn't have a remote workforce if managers aren't going to be trained to trust their team. You shouldn't dread seeing an email or hangout come in from management.

    Terrible work-life balance. Expected to always be available to clients, despite EST to PST timezone differences or even on sick days.

    No career paths, professional development was discouraged, limited opportunities to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are people first and foremost. Remember to respect your workforce, treat them like professional adults, honor the fact that work cannot always come first, give your people the time and support to deal with life's emergencies.

    Create good processes. Do a better job of onboarding not just to the company culture, but to the team and projects they will be working with. And then make sure people know they have a career path so that they don't have to look elsewhere to make growth happen.

    I have been working at Appirio full-time

    Pros

    “Forced work life balance” entire team reminds each other not to work too much.
    Smart and dedicated people. You can always count on the fact that no problem is too difficult because everyone has the ability to provide creative ideas
    This is the first company I worked for where Communication is not a problem. Even with virtual work, I feel more connected with my peers.
    Work from anywhere is priceless.
    You dictate your own learning path. If I want to work on something specific, just reach out to a manager and they will out of their way to make it happen.

    Cons

    Compensation is okay and no raises unless you get promoted after a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Please don’t forget who we were before the acquisition. I enjoy working on projects because of the bond I develop with the team. We are better and smarter together. There is a fear that we will eventually have a larger staff aug model. It gets lonely without the team; I hope we keep that to a minimum.

    Pros

    Great team/family atmosphere
    Competitive compensation
    You’ll never go hungry if you have to visit the Indianapolis office
    Acquisition by Wipro has increased market share and opportunity
    Excellent flexibility

    Cons

    Career development exists only for the most aggressive
    Unpredictable project work (but that’s the nature of consulting)

    Advice to Management

    Help employees understand how their career development goals line with business goals and work towards a path to help them get there.

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

    Pros

    - The people (bright, energetic, fun)
    - The leadership (transparent, energetic, passionate)
    - Benefits (just adopted 401k match. gym, internet, parking stipend)
    - Fun work
    - Transition with acquisition going smoothly
    - Training (on boarding and continuous)

    Cons

    Sometimes the crowd seems a bit young. Multiple hires comes straight from the “Ascend” program, which is a wonderful program to help recent college grads acclimate before transitioning into a permanent role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Being able to see your passion for our services is what continues to motivate us!

    I worked at Appirio full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Appirio has such a great culture! Everyone is so friendly and easy to work with! I worked with some of the best and smartest people I've ever met. Working in the main office was wonderful and its an open and helpful environment. Everyone is willing to help and daily nerf gun fights are a staple. You are able to work remote whenever you want as long as you get your work done

    Cons

    you are expected to continue to get certs for Salesforce or Workdays (whichever team you are on) and you are siloed since the software is so diverse you are siloed into one or the other.. if there are openings you can switch but it wouldn't be easy to switch back and forth if thats what you want to do
