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

    Pros

    Our Leadership is passionate about a great worker experience for Appirians. We use the best internal tools to create frictionless, collaborative teams. Since joining 2 years ago, I have been a part of project teams that have created the best Client work in my career. Virtual workplace creates the need for Client travel, but it also has a better work life balance.

    Cons

    There has been some turnover since the Wipro acquisition, but those who have stayed are committed and energized.

    Advice to Management

    Stay transparent and authentic to who you are. You have a vision for Appirio...don't let the Wipro influence overwrite that.

    I have been working at Appirio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Just finished my 3rd year @ Appirio. Overall, it has been a very positive experience. I enjoy working with very dedicated and capable people. The projects are diverse so you can get a lot of exposure to a lot of different industries. Appirio is by far the most transparent company that I have every worked for which is refreshing. The CEO will address any question that is raised head on and tell you what they are doing about it, even if the question is not quite appropriate for the forum. Appirio has had a fair amount of turnover recently but I think things are stabilizing now. Of the people I know that left, most were because there were other opportunities to be involved at startup orgs, not because the culture at Appirio was bad (my experience only).

    Cons

    The Wipro acquisition has been a bit of an unknown. Unfortunately, many of the experiences I have had with Wipro within Appirio reflect the "low cost, squeeze-prices-down" mentality that Wipro is known for which is not why I came to (and stay at) Appirio. I am holding my breath that they keep Appirio separate from Wipro as they have and let us do our thing in peace.

    Advice to Management

    The only way that you will keep the best and the brightest at Appirio is to keep the bean-counting Wipro folks at bay. If they are unleashed on the org many (including myself) are just primed to head for the doors.

    Pros

    Varied experiences, plenty of career growth opportunities, flexible work conditions, and a great support system.

    Cons

    Pay isn't very competitive and company culture has taken a hit since Wipro acquired Appirio

    Advice to Management

    A lack of competitive pay has lead to many people leaving. Appirio is a nice place to get started in the consulting world, but there doesn't seem to be much reason for people to stay after a few years.

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

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Work hard/play hard culture.
    Lots of collaboration opportunities as well as autonomy.
    You are treated like an adult and given the freedom to do your job.
    Lots of *Great* tools, truly a cloud company where you can work from anywhere.

    Cons

    Consultants are leaving in droves. The Wipro culture continues to seep in and the "do more with less" mindset has taken its toll. Wipro's culture of attrition and then just piling work on those who are left caused projects to fail.
    Much of Wipro feels like the 1960s where men can be condescending and adversarial towards women.
    Expense system is cumbersome and severely outdated.

    Advice to Management

    The best leaders are those who get in the trenches with you. Too often the management style is disengaged.

    I have been working at Appirio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company culture has been great in the 5+ years I've been here. At the individual worker level, everyone is great. Willing to jump in and help at a moment's notice. Great Collaboration!

    Cons

    After the Wipro acquisition, the types of engagements we've seen in the various practices have definitely changed. Scoping has always been an issue, and seems to have gotten worse. We've seen a large exodus in consultants in recent months causing the remaining staff to try to step up and become more overloaded. The benefits since the acquisition have gone up in cost and down in availability of Providers and covered needed.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up the Sales process so that your delivery teams are not left with attempting to do 100 hours worth of effort into a project that was promised in 60. Be willing to work keep talented people even if it means making larger than historical salary increases.

    Pros

    Great work life balance and an environment that promotes teamwork, learning, development and fun. Appirio has great programs in place to allow people to connect and collaborate even in the remote environment. We are encouraged to learn and grow.

    Leadership is always accessible and available. I emailed the CEO not too long ago about a concern and I had a reply within 5 minutes.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of attrition lately but I don’t know if this is really a con. At the end of the day it just leaves more opportunities for the ones that stay and for new people to come in and contribute to the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Stay transparent and focused.
