Nice people, but organization leaves something to be desired

Customer Support Engineer (Current Employee)
San Leandro, CA

I have been working at OSIsoft full-time for more than a year

Pros- Friendly, very trustworthy people
- Fairly rational approach to money usage
- Comparatively tight-knit feel for an expanding company
- Opportunity to get into small, conservative projects
- Perfectly fine place to be for now

Cons- Scattered departments
- Poor communication between business and technical segments of company
- Never retires products (which is easier to do initially, but becomes significantly harder over time)
- Some questionable personnel decisions
- Taking a larger proportion of undergraduates who lack experience in critical thinking and not training them
- Tech support is where people come in, but not where they want to stay

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a lot of opportunity that we haven't put to full use yet. Tech support bears a large burden of the business, but does not seem to be given much power to drive changes to let them do their job better. Assorted departments are pulling in opposite directions, and there is increasing confusion and inefficiency. The company is no longer at a size that one can "just walk up to any open door," yet there still seems to be a misconception that good ideas are actually getting to management's door. Instead good ideas are getting cast aside without bubbling up, lost in an unspoken hierarchy.

There's some great talent still in the company and hopefully they can be given more freedom and opportunity to drive new projects that span multiple departments. We need to prepare for a time when the memories of the open-door days are gone, because with some foresight, we can position ourselves to foster internal growth and have fresh ideas, even as we get bigger.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
