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

Pros

You can work from home
Travel is a Minimual

Cons

You have no control over getting assigned or your assignments and if you are not assigned you get penalized for low utilization

IT support functions (i.e. change enablement) doe not receive the same recognition as the IT strategy and implementation functions

Change enablement/Management function is a joke! Methodology is adhoc at best and the leadership (Management and Directors) are untrained- they often cut and paste presentations and tools from previous projects.

You have very little or no involvement in the kickoff of projects- due to Managers and Sr manager trying to accumulate utilization hours- However, you are responsible to deliver on objectives and promises made that often do not aligned with clients needs.

The culture is a Dictatorship (Chris Barbin) and leaves no room for error and discipline is inconsistent. Everyone is scared they will lose their job. People are often throwing each other under the bus to save their own neck. I have personally witness situations where clients requested individuals (IT) removed from a project and the individual was move to another project and the same thing happened to an individual (IT- support Change Management) and they are let go (off with their head).

Advice to Management

Do what is right not just what will make you Money or make you look good!

Investigate a situation don't just take one persons word before you act!

Practice what you preach!

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

    Pros

    start up feel, good career opportunities, great clients, work from anywhere

    Cons

    Travel can be on the heavy side, quick growth has started to impact some of the core values.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within, continue to provide forums for employees to excel quickly in their careers. Get feedback from employees with the most tenured employees to maintain values that makes Appirio great. Invest more time and money into company events and employee awards (not just top 10 percent).

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

    Pros

    Appirio is by far one of the best places to work. I have been here for almost a year and love my job! It's always a pleasure working with brilliant folks and being a part of such a great team. Everyone is willing to help each other and there is no sense of competitiveness among consultants (similar to environments like IBM and Accenture). They truly care about their employees and that is shown by initiatives such as Appirio CloudFit and Appirio Silver Lining. Appirio's strong leadership team is very approachable as they are involved in almost every project and many internal activities.

    Cons

    If you are not based out of San Francisco or Indianapolis, you will most probably be traveling or working from home. This is something that can be a downside if you prefer being in an office setting.
