    I have been working at Appirio full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, very flexible. Allow you to work from home when necessary. It is growing at high speed so a lot of opportunities will arise this year's and in the ones to come.

    Cons

    Nothing really bad to be honest. 2015 was not the best year for Appirio but I see they (we) are looking at what was wrongly done and trying to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up guys.

    I worked at Appirio (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good salary and good bonus structure
    - Incredible flexibility to work from home or anywhere in the world with little to no notice at all. This is probably the best the company has to offer.
    - Interesting projects, some could be really boring.
    - Company phone

    Cons

    - Lots of travelling. It's not impossible for someone to be 4+ weeks on site with customers, meaning weekly flights Monday to Thursday.
    - On top of that, you are expected to bend backwards to please customers and meet deadlines, which translates to crazy working hours.
    - Most people work from home so the office is like a ghost town. You won't feel that you are part of a team.
    - Very random promotions and career progression is a black box.
    - If you are in consulting, you'll work with a team of developers in India. Quality of dev work can be excellent or incredibly poor. Most developers can't properly communicate or articulate problems.
    - Because the development team is in India, you'll find yourself waking up very early to be able to catch up with their work, yet you'll have to meet the onshore people late in the afternoon = crazy long hours.
    - I found myself working 14 hours a day on multiple occasions and this had a bad impact on my mental and physical health.

    Advice to Management

    Make career progression a thing in the organization.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible in working from home
    Mostly remote work with clients, so smaller amount of travel compared to other consultanting firms
    Work with great technology (SFDC, Apple, Google, Workday,....), great ideas (TopCoder), and great people

    Cons

    Organisation and communication is somewhat lacking at times
    Clarity of vision and direction difficult to understand at times

    Advice to Management

    Outline the vision, outline how we get closer to that vision this year, and return to that roadmap at every staff call. Clarity of purpose, simplicity of roadmap are crucially important.

    Pros

    Varied experiences, plenty of career growth opportunities, flexible work conditions, and a great support system.

    Cons

    Pay isn't very competitive and company culture has taken a hit since Wipro acquired Appirio

    Advice to Management

    A lack of competitive pay has lead to many people leaving. Appirio is a nice place to get started in the consulting world, but there doesn't seem to be much reason for people to stay after a few years.

    I worked at Appirio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The infrastructure and facilities are simply amazing.

    Cons

    The biggest negative in Jaipur is the HR team here. This team does not have a clue as to what goes on in the office. There is no clarity around the policies which will come in when the merger with Wipro will happen. They are not at all open to feedback and simply wants to do the things they want to push. Their availability in office is something which is questionable, for them the office timings are 11 am to 4 pm. They dont know how to tackle employee pay issues and they would simply give you a POC in Wipro and expect the employees to work with them, which again is a pain in itself.

    The culture of the company has gone for a toss post the acquisition. There is no transparency and the communication from top down is very fabricated and follows a very political approach without any clear and proper answers keeping the employees in a confused state.

    There was a time when the employee experience was something which was of high prioirty, now this has just become a word and no one cares about it.

    If you are organizing something, then do it at your own risk. For some reason the payment to vendors now take ages and it is better not to engage the vendor at your own goodwill, because god knows when would he be paid.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on integration and you need to have a better leader in HR who can lead the same.

    I worked at Appirio full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Awesome workplace; facility, location, cafeteria, cabs etc
    2. Lots of opportunity at every level of career.
    3. Best tools for developer experience, project management and work management.
    4. Awesome people to work with
    5. Lots of global opportunities
    6. Easy to switch between projects/teams however one has to approach to right person
    7. Easy approachable top Leadership within Appirio
    8. Lots of training and learning opportunities
    9. Company spend a good amount of money and resources on employee engagement; team parties, company events, silver lining, sports events etc

    I saw a couple of negative feedback after merging with Wipro but in my opinion, Wipro has opened a lot more opportunities for Jaipur hive and the following facts are in favor of JDC.

    1. There are many more global opportunities now than ever before
    2. More options to move between the teams and explore other technologies/verticals.
    3. A number of training and learning opportunities. I attended two best training of my life after becoming part of Wipro. I am grateful for that experience.
    4. Solution and Innovation group has done an awesome job in the very short amount of time; lots of lightning bolts, products and Appirio Nigel

    In my opinion, slow positive changes are being ignored and a small negative incident becomes news very soon.

    Cons

    #1. In my opinion, Getting your hands dirty has been part of Appirio culture but these days developers are crying to get the right support from more experienced people in the red project.

    #2. . Awesome people at Appirio US are leaving a company.

    #3. One may not be valued if not on people management career track.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your platform experts/SME feel less valuable. You are lucky to have experts and also invested in them. Outside world is dying to get those experts. Impact of losing experts might not be immediate but in a long run organization will suffer in maintaining right CSAT score and employee experience.
