    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Top-notch PM and Engineering team. Great overall work environment. Cutting edge product

    Cons

    Acquired by Oracle killed morale. Work/Life balance was valued but depending on the project you would be expected to work on vacations and outside biz hrs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given the acquisition by Oracle and subsequent departure of most Endeca executives, there isnt a lot to say here.

    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great technology, great market, but most importantly one of the best teams in the Boston area. It's likely that things have changed a lot since the acquisition, but it was a great place to be before Oracle.

    Cons

    Many of the normal challenges of a start-up growing up: the organization learning to specialize and organize; finding people of the same high caliber as the early employees but with relevant experience; expanding into new markets as the initial niche becomes saturated. Really these were all good problems to have.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Passionate, dedicated team
    Smart people at all levels
    Through many ups and downs, folks kept pushing along, trying to change the information access world

    Cons

    Too much turn-over with senior management made consistent strategy and execution difficult
    Reticence to share too much information about strategy and change with employees created fear and doubt where it wasn't needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go start more great companies!

    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with very talented and smart people; great culture; worked on challenging problems; employees were encouraged to think outside the box and "be disruptive".

    Cons

    Core technology was the same, but the product positioning seemed to change every six months. Over the course of time, it seems like we would go full circle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused.
