    I have been working at OSIsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable job. Most of the time 9-5.

    Cons

    Like some others have posted low risk low reward employment. Compensation below industry average if you are not in top echelons of the company. Importance on learning and growth of individual employees is very low priority. Rise and compensation is based on how long you have been with the company rather than your career seniority, Old timers rule. Software and tools used are ancient. Software developers keep doing the same software release after release with few tweaks. Most of the money comes from old subscriptions and thus no impetus on improving existing software. Founder is busy elsewhere and generally has ancient ideas about how software company should be run no new blood in upper management. Hiring is slow and unplanned. Office facilities are really very antiquated and there is no plans for upgrading anytime soon. Managers are generally very apathetic. For a city like San Leandro where there is lack of quality restaurants, there is no catered lunch. Snack facilities are very poor. Since there are no Happy Hours there is general lack of social mingling in the company. There is no company expense account so you need to purchase everything and wait 2-3 weeks reimbursements, if it's big ticket items like Air Tickets for work travel then it sucks big time.

    Pros

    Like previous reviewers, better work/life balance compared to other companies in the Bay Area.
    Talent pool here is high, which is odd.

    Cons

    Benefits are below average, compensation is below average, opportunities for advancement are few and far between.

    Has the feeling of a more established, older company with lifers just waiting to retire, despite fast growth. In terms of retirement, 401(k) offers zero matching, no stock options, nada.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a better method of promotions. Most young adults aren't looking for a low level position for the rest of their lives, especially those with advanced degrees. Try to connect/communicate with your employees.
