    I have been working at Actuate full-time

    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.

    Pros

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

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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