    I have been working at Actian full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Actian has some of the greatest people you will ever meet and work with. Great technologies from 3 different companies. Very smart engineers. Pay is reasonable. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Executive management is clueless. They hire all these prima donnas, make sales goals there are unachievable and then layoff all the people that are actually doing the product work because sales missed their numbers. Layoffs again and talks of outsourcing more and more work leaves me to believe there is little to no job security. Promises of stock options, bonuses and going public just seems to be a pipe dream. It’s a meld of 3 or more cultures that spirits have been crushed. They don’t promote from within. There is no future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about the next Mercedes, BMW or Audi you are going to lease and get back to thinking about being how a startup would be run. You’re not bigwigs at big companies anymore. You’re a nobody at a nothing company so stop acting like prima donnas. You’re someone that’s been given an opportunity to build something great but your egos keep getting in the way of progress. Roll up your sleeves and get to work. Work on acknowledging and rewarding those who do all the hard grunt work who create the products and those in the field dealing with potential clients. Work on building a positive culture in the company and getting employees to be excited about coming to work knowing that the company values and cares about them because you have great people and if you took 2 minutes to meet the people that work in this company you’d see you are part of something that could be awesome.
