    I worked at Apigee full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At the time when I was in the employment with Apigee, I saw a major technical, headcount and management shift, ups and down. The colleagues were awesome. Work culture was good. - TGIF, - kind of flat structure. - Employee friendly policies. - Few projects were not revenue generating, and less work. Sometimes, people used to just enjoy life and waste time without goal.

    Cons

    - Difference in pays. There was no benchmarking. Few people with half the experience were paid double the salary compared to double experienced folks - Engineering team at India saw confused leadership, less hikes, plans without goals. - Some bigshots were just engaged in big talks. - Bad experience for patent application. Just to submit for patent application, leadership spent 1 year. The complete submission process...

    Experience of interacting with the smartest folks in the industry. Great technology decisions. Futuristic Engineering leaders. Flexibility to move across teams. If you are the kind who loves solving interesting problems on your own,dabble with new technologies,you gotta be HERE.

    Cons

    Too many meetings discussing various metrics. We need to rush and not ponder week over week over repetitive mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    On one side there are people burning out running too fast and there are a set of folks who while away! Please have some cadence around productivity across all functions.

    Thank you for writing such a helpful review. As I fear most people do, my eyes always go to the "Cons" and I look for the learnings' in them. The feedback about "rush and not ponder week over week over repetitive mistakes" is provocative. I think it's something we can and should ...

    I worked at Apigee full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Free Cricket match tickets. - Very often team lunches. - Free B1 visa. Only visa though. Trip is subject to terms and conditions.

    Cons

    - Pathetic middle management. All they care about is praising the senior management, will never care to take your point of view in consideration. - They use all lingo like we are Agile, we are flexible. All are false talks, don't trust them. You won’t be part of any grooming, and when you ask questions, you will be said to Google it. Yup you read it right. - They have a team in US to handle the UI work. Better leave...
