Great workplace, hard work but happy people
Software Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAJuly 24, 2018
Appian was a great place to work on a lot of levels, it's fast paced and has great infrastructure, but sometimes management can be inaccessible. Really good retention, though, because they appreciate their people and know how to make them happy.

Perfect mix of start-up and established company
Manager (Current Employee) –  RemoteMarch 22, 2018
I've been with Appian for a little over 5 years and am still a nerdily happily employee. It's the ideal environment for people that want to build something, work with smart/fun people, and have a voice. We're constantly innovating and finding better ways to achieve superior results across all departments. Some department heads are more challenging than others, but everyone is reasonable and will listen to ideas when presented respectfully with data backing your suggestions. Due to our size, your work gets noticed, and it's difficult for anyone to fly under the radar. Great for employees that are driven and want to make an impact. Not-so-great for underperformers. The founders have managed to maintain the fun, inclusive, quirky culture post- IPO, and I hope that never changes.
Pros
Culture, fun events, career growth opportunities
Cons
Benefits are expensive and bonuses are below market

Seems good but is a terible place to work
Business Development Representative (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAMarch 7, 2018
Do not work for Appian. They have a cutthroat culture. Management thinks they are geniuses but this is not the case.

They say "the best idea wins" but they will not listen to your idea. Revolving door in Business Development
Pros
Reston Town Center
Cons
Poor management on my team at least.

Great place to work at, with lots of opportunities for career advancements. Mixture of team collaboration as well as working independently, but no micromanagement.

decent product, limited ability for sales success
Sales (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAOctober 30, 2016
accomplished salesmen are not appreciated. Prepare to fall in line with immature sales processes and micromanagement. unfortunately hitting sales quota is dependent on sales management. full commission attainment is limited to several salesmen each year.

politically charged company. ability to survive is dependent on direct manager. rated on politics not ability
Pros
good product but competitors are ahead
Cons
immature management and micro manage every activity

Unethical company with micromanaging founders
senior consultant (Former Employee) –  Reston, VASeptember 7, 2012
Typical day at work 10+ hours, but still not enough

I learned going above and beyond, having integrity & being responsible with the company's money will get you nowhere; far better to complain and not do any work so you can get help

If you don't feed the egos of the 4 co-founders, you will get nowhere.

They run the company into the ground and burn out employees because of their egos, they think they know everything.
