    The founders and first employees are so smart and great people

    Market is defined for the products, however it is not broad and does not at the time suit smaller organisations.

    I worked at Apptio

    Pros

    The salary can be higher than in most places. Free Snacks

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else. I’ve never experienced a more toxic environment and it’s full of politics. Apptio products are a hard sell, besides even when implemented, most customers don’t see any value in it. This has given rise to “an old boys club” mentality among people who’ve stayed on for longer. Mind you, the turnover rate is extremely high. You put two and two together, I’m sure you would know the reason why.
