I worked at Jaspersoft

Pros

good software
good rank and file employees
location

Cons

Executive management can't prioritize. Everything is a fire drill. There's no time to plan before implementing. They say they value quality, but they push you to do some much work that quality suffers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To do some things well, you can't do everything.

    Great place to work if you are not in sales

    I worked at Jaspersoft

    Pros

    Good group of people
    Interesting technology
    Great SF location
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Most of product development devoted to the open source products that generate no $
    Commercial product pricing strategy made absolutely no sense
    Marketing at all levels for the commercial products was a joke
    With one exception, sales management was disorderly, disinterested, and reactionary.
    No sense of urgency about ANYTHING, except when it was time to point fingers at the sales team
    Sales people treated like children. Expected to be at your desk at 8 am so you could watch the rest of the company trickle in beween 9 and 11 (management included)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide whether you want to be a true commercial venture with a sustainable model or some open source also ran whose only strategy is to hope someone will acquire you.

    I have been working at Jaspersoft full-time

    Pros

    Seeded well via the open source community and ISV/OEM channels
    Covers a decent portion of the BI spectrum for a niche vendor
    Nice people to work with, strong focus on constant community contribution

    Cons

    Lacks leadership to take it to the next level
    Flawed sales distribution, not a scalable go to market strategy
    Lacking general sense of urgency, too much 'community' not enough 'commercial'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the company and get some top notch talent to take this company to the next level. Some important pieces are in place: seeding strategy, product is looking better.....but the company is lacking execution.

    Hmmm . . . pretty sure this review is about 6 years old. Our current CEO and executive team was brought in to address most of the issues cited here. In the past 5 years, the concerns noted in this ... More
