I have been working at Pentaho full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The office in SF has awesome views
Many of the office staff females are very attractive
Sometimes management will treat you to dinner

Cons

I am in sales and from that standpoint it's a revolving door of people.
Nobody makes quota then you get fired after building your pipeline.
Don't take my word for it. Check out all the past people who have worked there in sales
on LinkedIN.
The CEO often goes on wild, incomprehensible rants he calls "motivational talks"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set realistic goals for your sales staff and it will not be a revolving door.

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

    Pros

    At Pentaho, I am surrounded by so many people I admire and respect. The team chemistry is great and the team leads are some of the best I've ever worked with. The projects keep me engaged and interested. I appreciate all the things the company does to keep us happy and motivated - brown bags, occasional free lunches, loaded break rooms, work-from-home flex, gym memberships, etc. The best part of working here is the culture! =)

    Cons

    We have a very long list of products/projects to maintain. It takes a long time to get familiar with the entire technology stack.

    I have been working at Pentaho full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a dynamic and fun place to work....the creativity and ideas that are swirling about are amazing! I have been here about a year and I still look forward to going into the office on Monday mornings. The motto here seems to be "ask for forgiveness, not permission". Management actively encourages ideas.

    Definitely full of very intelligent, creative people, and there's a distinct lack of "jerks". I believe that the hiring process is designed specifically to keep shallow thinkers, pessimistic people, and jerks out! It's quite refreshing

    Cons

    Sometimes it's a little loud (people chatting). Hey, I had to write something here, and that was all I could come up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue having 1 on 1s with staff....this process works
