Pros & Cons

  • Culture is really good, feel quite well supported.
  • We are a medium-sized team here in Sydney, but headquarters in America provides us with a lot of support, such as 1 month long training when we first joined and many work benefits. Best thing hands down are still the people.
  • The ability to learn and develop both technical and soft skills which can be immediately put to into action when working on a case.
  • Big learning curve, many moving parts.
  • Time differences between America make it hard to feel like you are part of the larger organisation and General meetings occur outside of normal business hours some of the time.
  • Can be difficult sometimes to keep up to date with new feature releases and being able to take full advantage of the software's capabilities.

Recruitment

Recruitment
An online application followed by a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager at a university careers fair. After this, a "Superday" was scheduled where I was invited to the office to gain a better understanding of what Appian does, followed by a series of interviews with senior employees. The Superday was closed out with a more relaxed-feeling dinner in order to socialise with the office and get a better feel of the company culture.
