    Actuate a great place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSupportive 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

    ConsI have not seen any cons yet.

    Sales Rep's Dream Job!

    Major Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsOut 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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter 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

    ProsActuate is the perfect size company. They are just Big enough to produce a great product and organization to support it globally, but at the same time small enough to be agile in the process of building relationships and influencing product direction.

    ConsActuate is right in the grey area of being a big company and a small company so the internal processes are busy catching up to the larger volumes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees for their feedback on what can be done to make things even more efficient.

    Sales Development Representative (Current Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsAccess to managers who can make decisions. Everyone on board has the goal of doing something great to be successful in their career.

    ConsEverything has to get approved by the CEO regardless of amount or strategic influence.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the people who get feedback from the field feel good about suggesting change, rather than being scared to speak their mind.

    Solid, stable company with a wonderful culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsI've been with Actuate for nearly 10 years and am very happy here. The company invests in its employees and takes care of those who perform. Provides a great work-life balance and the opportunity to learn and grow in areas of professional interest. Promotes collaboration and cohesiveness both within and between departments and this fosters a very positive work environment.

    ConsI really don't have anything negative to say--I wish the office was a little closer to home but I am provided a lot of flexibility to accommodate my commute so this isn't an issue.
