I worked at Actuate full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Local sales manager was good but sr. managers were concerned with their own survival.

Cons

High sales turnover, frequent territory changes, average product made it difficult to create real relationships with clients. I knew I was in trouble when a client pulled a stack of biz cards from their drawer and said they were all my predecessors.

    I have been working at Actuate full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good work life balance, nice employees, friendly environment, generally accessible exec staff, flexible with family, small enough that most people get to know each other

    Cons

    high turnover, no employee retention plans, below average compensation and near impossible to get an increase, few opportunities to grow, have to leave to improve career, party culture spills into work time, some long term dead weight in the ranks, steady loss of talent and nothing happening to stop it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Its an easy place to get on board because of the turnover

    Cons

    What a mess. If you need a job then take it but keep looking while you listen to the stories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to shareholders. Take a deep look at the senior leadership and ask yourself if this is where you want your money to be invested at?
