    Pros

    Actuate was more like a family than a company. If you see someone in the market after the OT acquisition hire them!

    Cons

    Remains to be seen what will happen after the OT acquisition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have inherited great people. Treat them right!

    Pros

    Out of this world salary + commissions! Work from home but with all the back-end corporate and systems support one needs. Salesforce CRM. Sales Development Reps that not only call into your territory to follow up on Marketing leads, but nurture those leads to hand off to you to CLOSE! No micro-management but loads of support from Upper Management and Product Engineers

    Cons

    When you're in a field of your own, it's difficult to be properly evaluated & ranked by analysts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better educate Gartner & Forrester to ensure that our placement is reflective of our true performance,which, as we're a class of our own is a challenge

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

    Pros

    Actuate is the perfect size company. They are just Big enough to produce a great product and organization to support it globally, but at the same time small enough to be agile in the process of building relationships and influencing product direction.

    Cons

    Actuate is right in the grey area of being a big company and a small company so the internal processes are busy catching up to the larger volumes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees for their feedback on what can be done to make things even more efficient.

    Pros

    I've been with Actuate for nearly 10 years and am very happy here. The company invests in its employees and takes care of those who perform. Provides a great work-life balance and the opportunity to learn and grow in areas of professional interest. Promotes collaboration and cohesiveness both within and between departments and this fosters a very positive work environment.

    Cons

    I really don't have anything negative to say--I wish the office was a little closer to home but I am provided a lot of flexibility to accommodate my commute so this isn't an issue.
