    Excellent company for technical talent

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsI 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Everything is Priority #1

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    Prosgood software
    good rank and file employees
    location

    ConsExecutive 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 Senior ManagementTo do some things well, you can't do everything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work if you are not in sales

    Sales Manager (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood group of people
    Interesting technology
    Great SF location
    Good benefits

    ConsMost 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 Senior ManagementDecide 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
