Pros: free coffee/tea, quarterly happy hours, awesome holiday party
Cons: non-metro-accessible headquarters
Appian is a great software company to work for - people work hard but also play hard. I've been here for many years, and have had the opportunity to take on interesting new duties. My department is small but gets a LOT done, so my routine is different every day - there's no time to get bored or stagnant. The "Center of Funcellence" plans frequent happy hours, trivia nights, and other events, and there's always free coffee in the break room (Keurigs get me through the day!). I always have to explain what exactly we do to friends, but at the end of the day, we work with really interesting, big customers.
