    Pros

    Good name within the developer community which makes a good story for big data.

    Cons

    Pentaho is delivering the future of business analytics but no one has a clue about what that means. The product team has unfortunately not seen any other BI tool for the last 8 years and is driven by the feature functions that the open source contributes. The marketing / prod marketing teams are all fluff. There is no single sole in that team who has a BI background. And we are all trying to sell to a technical BI buyer. Go figure the mess we are in! It is a super competitive market and things don't hold up. Product is weak. Positioning is confusing and is all about feature functions. I have to laugh every time nonsense like "blending at the source" vs. “blending at the glass” comes out of our product marketing. You call this positioning? Pentaho, you can do better than this. Get some people who know BI to run your core teams. So while Pentaho might sounds like a good opportunity at first, sh** is going to hit the fan soon. Sales numbers speak for themselves. Think twice before you join.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with BI knowledge. Invest in the product, not marketing.

    Pros

    Tons of perks for the employees and for the most part, great staff. The industry they are in and the position they have placed themselves have a huge potential for growth especially if you are vested in the company.

    Cons

    Like many companies they have internal politics so it causes inefficiencies and a ton of gossip and back talk. Communication is sticky between upper management, often time causing friction between the lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to really see good talent and figure out how to keep them. Build team spirit between all departments, so their is positive and congruent efforts in pushing the company as a whole forward.
