    I worked at Apptio full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart engineering team. Good company communication. Apptio is the leader in the service costing industry with a lot of high paying customers. Good people.

    Cons

    When I worked there they had 1 monolithic application. Data was stored in a mysterious db that nobody could explain well. It was frustrating trying to build simple features.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good but other than that, ZILCHO

    Cons

    Many people who know of Apptio have said it is a very hard sale. When reps are successful, Apptio's male dominated management team can't bring themselves to appreciate their teams accomplishments. Sure, they will applaud you on public sales webcasts, but in private they focus on all and any flaws and what you should have done differently. Big mistake as top talent is leaving for this reason.

    Cons

    -Leadership can get over the top when talking about the "mission" and such -A fair amount of transition is occurring which means there's a lot of moving parts and growing pains. If you're comfortable with some ambiguity and have a growth mindset you could see this as an opportunity but it's not the right environment for everyone

    Good health, dental, vision benefits, 401k. good company for those entering the workforce. Good client base.

    Cons

    Sexist management or managers that regularly curse and belittle employees in order to get work done. Apptio is very sales focused and if you are not constantly hitting those numbers you are receiving PIP which include false information. Not transparent on anything that affects employees
