Pros

New website that better tells the Actian story. Management open to new ideas from employees and willing to adapt/change. Very intelligent people at all levels. Very collaborative

Cons

Very fast changing, dynamic culture. Probably too fast changing for some people. Organization used to be siloed across 3 groups: Ops Databases, Integration, and Big Data based on 2013 acquisitions. In the last month, they re-org'ed and morphed into offering a single Big Data platform.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide company equity (stock) to all employees so they feel ownership

    Pros

    Actian is a great company to work for. Never a dull moment here and constantly innovating to deliver practical solutions to the market. At a recent Customer Event, multiple blue-chip customers shared very positive feedback about the technology and how it has helped accelerate their time to insight and improved business for them. Very smart bunch of folks who work closely as a team, definitely lot of fun in my opinion.

    Cons

    Nothing really, we've got everything going for us - great profitability, strong technology platform, loads of name-brand customers who keep buying more every year, cordial atmosphere at work and a lot of fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the innovation to stay ahead of the competition and continue to nurture the friendly and team-work culture for more growth.
