Great environment but you don't want to work for a sinking ship

I have been working at Pentaho

ProsFlexible schedule and fun office environment. They allow employees to drink beer on the job. I am not sure if that is a pro or a con. Benefits are 100% paid for employees and family members.

ConsUnfortunately this company cannot stick to a business plan. Upper level management has high turn over ("leaving to spend more time with their family members") and they hire their friends instead of qualified candidates. Also, I have been with this company for over 4 years without a raise or review. Whatever you do, don't ask for a raise because this firm will deny you that right. Pentaho expects employees to work long hours (whether from home or office) but they wont promote, give positive feedback, offer training, or offer you a raise; unless of course you are a friend of the CEO, CFO, or VP of Sales. If you are a friend of theirs, then you have a chance. Also, every person employed by Pentaho seems to wear a VP hat and is a male. In the last 2 years, I noticed that the founders are either in over their head or bored with the company so they hired new people to take over and make all the original Pentaho employees miserable. If you do decide to work for this firm, I would recommend leaving after the first two years because there is no room for growth unless you are friends with the executive team.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
