    Pros

    I'm happy to be at Pentaho. The company culture is open and fun while still maintaining a professional atmosphere. People here are good at what they do and also take what they do seriously. If you want to push yourself and be with a corporation that's doing big things, this is the place.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about Pentaho. This is a great place. The work is great, as are the benefits.

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

    Pros

    The people are great and it's always fun to come to work. You feel like you're going to hang out with friends and get stuff done. I look forward to going to work every day.

    Cons

    Some of the people are political and there are lots of growing pains as the company is rapidly getting bigger. That is a really small fraction, though, and I think it mostly affects management. There is really no formal on board training, which makes ramping up challenging. You have be comfortable with change and moving fast to fit in.

    I have been working at Pentaho full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    At Pentaho, I am surrounded by so many people I admire and respect. The team chemistry is great and the team leads are some of the best I've ever worked with. The projects keep me engaged and interested. I appreciate all the things the company does to keep us happy and motivated - brown bags, occasional free lunches, loaded break rooms, work-from-home flex, gym memberships, etc. The best part of working here is the culture! =)

    Cons

    We have a very long list of products/projects to maintain. It takes a long time to get familiar with the entire technology stack.

    I have been working at Pentaho full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is a dynamic and fun place to work....the creativity and ideas that are swirling about are amazing! I have been here about a year and I still look forward to going into the office on Monday mornings. The motto here seems to be "ask for forgiveness, not permission". Management actively encourages ideas.

    Definitely full of very intelligent, creative people, and there's a distinct lack of "jerks". I believe that the hiring process is designed specifically to keep shallow thinkers, pessimistic people, and jerks out! It's quite refreshing

    Cons

    Sometimes it's a little loud (people chatting). Hey, I had to write something here, and that was all I could come up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue having 1 on 1s with staff....this process works

    Pros

    Pentaho is unique and I love working here. It is the perfect combination of "laid-back casualness", and commitment to excellence.

    Pros:
    Co-Workers are passionate about the product and their role in creating it.
    Flexible schedule.
    Great place for people who are self starters and self managers.
    Lots of new, cutting-edge technology.
    International teams.
    Incredible benefits package, the best I've seen anywhere!

    Cons

    Cons:
    There aren't any cons for me, but this place would be a poor fit for someone who needs a lot of guidance and clear direction. It would also be a poor fit for someone who is not a self-starter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
