    I worked at Jaspersoft

    Pros

    I found Jaspersoft to be an exciting, challenging place to work. Management listened to individual contributors, and gave them the opportunity to make a real difference to the company. Risk taking was accepted, and even encouraged. It was fun being in the open source business, and being at a company that was innovative in both its product and its business model.

    Cons

    I wasn't crazy about the work space. Its an old San Francisco building with a weird floor plan.
    Some of the early techies have left, leaving a knowledge void.
    Company wasn't profitable when I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the teams overseas are tightly integrated with the rest of the company.
    Focus on turning a profit - avoid distractions and peripheral opportunities.

    I've been in software 20+ years. Jaspersoft is the best company I've ever worked for.

    I have been working at Jaspersoft

    Pros

    The people and the product. We have intelligent, hard working, level headed executive leadership, departmental management, and colleagues. Our product strategy and management departments are much more sophisticated than a few years ago, and the result is some really exciting product. And finally, respect - mutual respect across departments and geographies and up and down the hierarchy are built into the Jaspersoft corporate culture. If you're smart, respectful, and work hard it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    We run pretty lean - it would be nice to have more operating budget. Like most software companies, we work hard and sometimes very long hours.

    I worked at Jaspersoft

    Pros

    good software
    good rank and file employees
    location

    Cons

    Executive management can't prioritize. Everything is a fire drill. There's no time to plan before implementing. They say they value quality, but they push you to do some much work that quality suffers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To do some things well, you can't do everything.

    I worked at Jaspersoft

    Pros

    Good group of people
    Interesting technology
    Great SF location
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Most of product development devoted to the open source products that generate no $
    Commercial product pricing strategy made absolutely no sense
    Marketing at all levels for the commercial products was a joke
    With one exception, sales management was disorderly, disinterested, and reactionary.
    No sense of urgency about ANYTHING, except when it was time to point fingers at the sales team
    Sales people treated like children. Expected to be at your desk at 8 am so you could watch the rest of the company trickle in beween 9 and 11 (management included)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide whether you want to be a true commercial venture with a sustainable model or some open source also ran whose only strategy is to hope someone will acquire you.
