    A promise of a bright future, but the reality is a dark miserable micromanagement team in the dark.

    Pros

    They have a good mix of products that are in demand right now.

    Cons

    They moved the sales organization from a perpetual license model to a subscription model. They do not care the effect of that change as it relates to the commission rates verses the annual number. Their lack of commitment to their clients and their employees is a receipt for disaster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the customer, in today's world of social media your need to provide a high level of customer focus and commitment to build a strong reputation and repeatable business.

    I have been working at Actuate full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Out of this world salary + commissions! Work from home but with all the back-end corporate and systems support one needs. Salesforce CRM. Sales Development Reps that not only call into your territory to follow up on Marketing leads, but nurture those leads to hand off to you to CLOSE! No micro-management but loads of support from Upper Management and Product Engineers

    Cons

    When you're in a field of your own, it's difficult to be properly evaluated & ranked by analysts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better educate Gartner & Forrester to ensure that our placement is reflective of our true performance,which, as we're a class of our own is a challenge

    Pros

    Supportive management and friendly environment. I just started with the company and the onboarding experience has been very positive. HR was helpful and met with me to go over company benefits and the health plan in depth. Several days after I started, HR checked back with me to make sure everything is going well. Very happy so far with this position

    Cons

    I have not seen any cons yet.
