Actian has quickly transformed itself into THE major player in Big Data Analytics

Senior Director, Marketing (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

ProsNew 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

ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementProvide company equity (stock) to all employees so they feel ownership

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Actian full-time for more than a year


    Pros: -plenty of great, hardworking, talented people here -casual office environment Cons: No clear direction from management. Lots of talk about huge things to come, but never really executed… Advice to Senior Management: Follow-through on commitments to develop clear plans of execution, be honest with employees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
