    I have been working at Apptio full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for but it very much depends on who you report to and which department you're in.

    Cons

    Sales, Account Manager and Marketing departments get hugely rewarded including trips and gifts. The rest of the company do not get any rewards despite working endless hours to meet the goals as it's a very fast paced company.

    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 your existence until you basically shout at them or quit.

    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

    "Great Saas company to work but Apptio are over-confident about TBM value proposition"

    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...)

    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.
