    "Practice Director"

    Current Employee - Engagement Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Apttus full-time

    Pros

    Hyper Growth Company with a great culture
    Where else do you have pancake races around the office?
    Lunch provided on a Weds, hot breakfast on a Friday – if you partake you join the team in the kitchen as part of ‘One Team’, where else does that happen naturally…you cant bottle this type of camaraderie.

    Lack of / minimum Politics
    Having worked for large Enterprise Organisations where its difficult for decisions to be made, APTTUS is the opposite, we want to hear from the team.
    The employees are supported

    Support
    I genuinely work for a Professional Services Organisation that has the same goal, deliver, deliver well, to time & to quality & we will support you when there are issues / advise & or guidance is needed.
    We are here to deliver for the client, identify problems or concerns early through a structured & consistent management approach.

    Opportunities
    I started as a Senior Engagement Manager, I am now a Practice Director managing the Engagement & Project Managers

    Methodology
    Without doubt the best toolset I have ever used to support the delivery of a project
    Delivery of QTC (you could argue any project) is difficult, but the methodology we use here is designed to help/support both APTTUS & the Client.

    Cons

    - The company is still growing, and suffering from growing pains.

    - The product is complex (niche) so not well known in the SAAS space (for now)

    Pros

    The company culture started off hot, but a lot has been happening lately. To early to say how the future is going to be. But I am happy.

    Cons

    To much to even go into. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion and i wish you the best. Management is not here to help you anymore, all about how to save money/ make more cuts to the BDRs.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your team, stop try to be secretive and shady. GIVE RAISES. There is no future with Apttus to grow, absolutely nothing.

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

    Pros

    - A very good learning experience, specially for a fresh university grad
    - The very valued "Bay area start up" experience
    - The office is really nice

    Cons

    - Lunches went from being free to being $3 to now $5.
    - There is a lot of nepotism (and Sexism). If you are on good "social" terms with your boss, you will be recognized, rewarded and presented with better opportunities.
    - No parking for a lot of newer employees!
    - Not sure where the company is headed.
    - Low salary and no raises

    I worked at Apttus full-time

    Pros

    Apttus has a surprisingly good reputation, especially the sales team. If you were successful at Apttus, you won't have a hard time finding a job after you leave. The snacks are fairly decent (recommend the chocolate almonds and peanut butter pretzels) Food in general seems to be a high priority, I guarantee at Accelerate 2017 that there will be excellent array of snacks and sweets

    Cons

    The longer you work at Apttus the less you like it. There is little to no communication between departments or even between you and upper management. You can never be sure of your job security, because you won't get honest feedback on your personal or team performance until it is too late. Also there is an insane amount of hype at HQ, which is not backed by anything. Recently there was an article featured in Business Insider re-posted by several at Apttus applauding their Max Billboard. However if you read the article, all it says about Apttus is has nothing to do with Cyborgs (billboard is slightly misleading), but CallidusCloud (competitor) helps sales personnel sell better.

    Advice to Management

    notice that employees are unhappy and do something

    Pros

    Great management support, flexible work environment allows work from home and remote options, every single employee I know is willing to jump in to help others

    Cons

    Everyone is very busy as Apttus runs lean so sometimes meetings get backed up and do not start when scheduled

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing all the right things, like sharing company visions and plans with your employees.

    I worked at Apttus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The ability to get experience with the Salesforce platform and some certfications

    Cons

    The pay is below the market.
    The company is chaotic. Think of the chaos in India. Then, think about that in the US.
    Supply and demand of resources is out of whack. Somehow they have only a handful of engineers who actually know their own product.
    Sales grossly underestimates projects to get commissions on licensing. Then the delivery team is left to clean up the mess.
    The product is overly complicated to implement. Keep your eyes on Steelbrick CPQ

    Advice to Management

    Drain the swamp

    Pros

    Co-workers are good people, and everyone is open and willing to help. Physical offices are much better for teamwork than home offices. Salary is competitive.

    Cons

    Salesforce acquired Steelbrick, and the Apttus wheels are falling off. Executive management should not be trusted. Sales operations is a mess except for a handful of people.
