Terrible on-boarding processes and middle school of the adult tech world

Sales Engineer (Former Employee)
San Mateo, CA

I worked at Actuate as a contractor for more than a year

Pros7 hour work days, relaxed and slow pace environment like that of a government organization. They embrace alcohol and parties. Their products are good.

ConsHighly political, lots of back stabbing and subjective false allegations towards each other. Just dysfunctional especially to a newbie. Lots of comments to new employees such as "you should have known xyz from your last company". Males openly flirt with females and the females don't mind (not sure what falls under - weird?). childish behaviors.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour method of divide and conquer works wells and you are achieving your goals.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
