    Pros

    Good product due to legacy as open source

    Cons

    Not a good place for seasoned enterprise software sales reps, they just have no credible sales organization or experience. As an open source company they have been successful, but now they want to play in the enterprise game and are clueless on how to execute. Your INBOX is full of free license requests from all over the globe. They have no lead gen. They have no experience in sales management. They expect the salesperson to give demos and conduct sales meetings on their own- yet they want to compete with IBM and Oracle who send teams of specialists on sales calls. They have no on-boarding process for salespeople and expect you to learn on your own. Lastly, too much focus on religion, they are zealots. Quote from CEO is that he wants to turn every Muslim into a Christian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your entire sales force, hire a credible VP Sales and COO.

    Pros

    People are genuine and real. Not too much politics. We are building great software and doing it through open source.

    Cons

    Sometimes trying to build a business with free software is not easy. We need to strike the right balance between monetization and adoption.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should expand your vision beyond portals to adjacent technologies. Also, we need to move faster on our cloud and mobile strategies.
