    I have been working at Apptio full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Top class colleagues, team spirit and support here is the best I've ever encountered - Really good management - Great work atmosphere - Good salary/benefits - Interesting work - Top clients - Chance to make a real change in the company - Technically pleasing - Chance to consult with and advise very senior IT management on client side

    Cons

    - Long hours and big challenges sometimes encountered - Career path not always clear - Still a small-ish company, so you have to be comfortable working with the unknown sometimes and be able to get on with it (for me this is almost a pro)

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on work life balance. The employees love Apptio and most would be willing to do anything - don't take advantage of that unless absolutely necessary.

    I worked at Apptio full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing people, genuinely lovely staff that care about their co-workers. Incredible salaries for all positions. Pay is higher than industry standard Good office location in the city of London.

    Cons

    Very little structure in the sales process. Regions are not well aligned & grudges are held outside of HQ. Definitely an old boys club. They’ll try to tell you differently, but harassment happens in the smallest & largest ways possible - on all levels. Clique-behaviour - difficult to feel part of the company depending on which team you work for. Some people have been there for 7-8 years & wont speak to you or acknowledge...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who are trying to bring change. Do not call yourself innovative if all you’re doing is hanging on to the way you’ve done things before.

      I worked at Apptio full-time

      Pros

      The people you work with and salary is good

      Cons

      Avoid at all costs. The software is no use to the larger organization, they do the slightest change and it's calculating for 19hrs! Absolutely zero communication. Micromanaged all the time

      Advice to Management

      Get fired!!!! So people with actual management experience can take over.

      I worked at Apptio full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Apptio look after their employees and pay well. Culture is informal and cool, it feels like a big start-up. The market they created with the TBM is niche and have a great potential for IT leaders and organisations.

      Cons

      CEO will quickly make you understand it's 110% investment, and he leads by example. So you'd better be willing to commit or leave. The TBM sounds good on the paper, but for large organisations it will not always be perceived as necessary and without a risk (data, implementation...)

      Advice to Management

      Get more feedback to improve products, smile more when you walk around it won't kill you.

      I have been working at Apptio full-time

      Pros

      Freedom to explore new technologies and work with great people

      Cons

      The pressure is intense, intense to the point that bad decisions are made and mistakes keep being repeated in the cause of faster turnaround times.

      Advice to Management

      Please pull in new people that understand how to operate at this scale.

        I have been working at Apptio full-time

        Pros

        Apptio has single handedly created a market and filled a need. The company has an incredible amount of energy. Best marketing in software. Very talented sales team.

        Cons

        Complete lack of product vision, and as a result progress and innovation is made at a pace that is too slow for a software company. Product decisions are made by engineers who know nothing about the market or the customer base. So capability that does get added into the product doesn't often meet customer needs.

        Advice to Management

        Clean house in Engineering. Bring in engineering leadership that has vision and knows how to lead to that vision. Get an overall vision for the product and make progress toward that vision. Promote from within and stop diluting the culture of the company by bringing in outside management.

        Employees treated well on the whole with an informal work environment New category, which makes it interesting to work within

        Cons

        Work-life balance needs monitoring as company will happily let you spend your weekends getting things done with little reward.

        Advice to Management

        Management don't always follow through on their actions - specifically around career development. When no action is taken but promises are made, it affects motivation.
