    I have been working at Appian full-time (More than 5 years)


    Absolutely the best Low Code platform on the market. Growth has been amazing. Employee support from a Covid perspective is above and beyond. Unlimited PTO. Extensive health insurance options. Competitive base salary. Exceptional engineering expertise.


    Even with record revenues, Appian has hit a wall. I have high expectations the new CRO will shake up the organization.

    Legal has too much say in pricing deals. Legal needs to treat internal customers with respect.

    Commission structure needs reevaluated. I do expect this to be addressed for 2021.

    US top leadership needs to be more engaged and stop playing favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Sales recognition needs to be addressed in a serious manner. For years this has been ignored. Stop talking about it and execute.

    Get competitive in the market from deal perspective. Get legal out of the pricing discussions. Deal Desk while part of legal is getting better, they are still too rigid and closed minded.

    Internal departments need to treat internal customers with respect like sales treats customers. Sales is not the enemy.
