Summer internship

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Leandro, CA

I worked at OSIsoft as an intern for less than a year

ProsGot some really good work done and have a lot to show for the internship. I was left alone and didn't feel like someone was looking over my shoulder. Everyone who works here is very nice. Good compensation. My work was actually used by another company - pretty neat!

ConsPeople really put their heads down and work here, so a lot gets done, but people hardly ever talk, so it can get a bit awkward.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Collaborative and friendly work environment, but undergoing many significant changes

Employee (Current Employee)
San Leandro, CA

I have been working at OSIsoft full-time for less than a year

ProsThe people at OSIsoft are what make the company. Everybody is very approachable and helpful when they can be. At this point, there is no micromanagement which is a huge plus for me. Technical support is a fairly autonomous position, so it is nice that the managers keep their eyes on the big picture.

ConsSome significant restructuring is happening within OSIsoft Tech Support. As the company grows, they are trying to mimic the more structured hierarchies of larger companies. This means they are adding ranking to your title (TSE I, TSE II, etc) which may add some constrictions in terms of advancement for employees, but it may not. It is too early to tell.

Also, as other reviews have mentioned, it is becoming somewhat harder to advance within the company, especially as it gets larger. Moving across departments (Tech Support -> Engineering) is not an easy feat, as Tech Support will not want to let you go and Engineering isn't in a hurry to hire developers internally. However, I do believe that if you prove yourself as a valuable asset that advancement is possible; it might just take some time.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaintain a close relationship with each of your employees, while avoiding micromanaging. Determine where the employee wants to go and help them figure out how they can get there. Give more constant personal feedback and ask for feedback from your employees.

OSIsoft offers flexibility and stability.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at OSIsoft

ProsI get to work around awesome people. I especially like "Healthy Snack Thursdays!" OSIsoft is a mid-sized company-- I would almost describe it as a giant start-up company that has been around for 30+ years.

ConsThe building feels outdated, we could use some upgrades! Also, many employees work in shared cubicles. I would love to feel like I had more of my own space.

30 Years in Business and Never a Lay-Off

Technical Recruiter (Current Employee)
San Leandro, CA

I have been working at OSIsoft

ProsThey are down-to-earth and the bar is set pretty high. Conversations start at a very high level. Ideas are encouraged and recognized. Your career path is most important to them.

ConsA little stodgy at times. Still privately held so there are not any stock options. If you don't have an engineering degree, your chances of employment diminish.

Advice to Senior ManagementHonest and fair. A good place to be.

I have been working at OSIsoft

ProsThe people are really smart and friendly. If you want, you can learn a lot. No one is looking over your shoulder, you are expected to do your job and do it well. The company is stable and growing!

ConsIf you like a lot of structure, not a good place to work. Going through some growing pains, but will get there. Communication from management could be better.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate changes to employees sooner. Work as a management team in a more efficient and productive manner. Continue to trust employees decisions and hold them and yourselves accountable for those decisions.
