Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have to agree with both the negative and positive reviews posted. I worked for Pentaho for 5 years... Actually I was one of the first 20 employees. I had the opportunity to watch the company grow, change, and grow again. The Pentaho team is amazing and I am still very passionate about the product. Unfortunately, I was part of lay off number 3 but that's all a part of the corporate America game. I recommend re-hiring individuals who were previously laid off, stop calling a 7 year company a start up, stop hiring friends, offer employee training for growth, and actually listen to employees (especially the employees that started the company). Other than that, great product!
I wish the team the best! Go Pentaho!

    Pros

    Pentaho has developed an excellent BI suite of products and the people are very energetic and enthusiastic. The software is "best of breed" in the Open Source BI category and I would venture to say that their applications can give Business Objects suite of software a run for their money in terms of functionality and integration. As a former BO employee, I can speak to the technological functionality. The services team is very intelligent, motivated and helpful. Benefits are top notch and the HR team is also great to work with.

    Cons

    On-boarding process could be more systematic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Keep up the great work and lets meet our goals!

    Pros

    From the culture of the company to the people I work with, Pentaho is an excellent company to work for. Full of very intellectual and business orientated personnel with a single goal in mind. To make Pentaho successful.
    Good benefits and salary.

    Cons

    Sometimes need to put in extra hours to get things done. Not necessarily a con depending on your work habits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice I would give to management is to be more communicative between department heads, foster growth and learning and provide resources earlier so that we can be fire retardant rather than fire fight when issues arise.
